Big giggles with Tommy

The Big Gig at the Ballina RSL kicks off for 2010 with a laugh-fest headlined by Tommy Dean.

In the US (from whence he came) he’s worked with Rosie O’Donnell and Tim Allan (Home Improvements and the voice of Buzz Lightyear). In Australia, you’ve seen him on Good News Week, Back Berner, Spics and Specs and he’s a regular on Thank God It’s Friday on ABC radio. He’s been described as the comic with “more spin than Shane Warne”. (He certainly has more hair...) His laconic style and foreign insights into Australia have left punters rolling in the comedy club aisles all over the world.

Tommy has the edge of being an American who now lives in this wide, coal-burning land. He understands Australia, its audiences and what makes us laugh.

Tommy will do his funny thing at the Big Gig next Thursday, March 25, with Mandy Nolan as MC and Paul McMahon as support. Show starts at 8pm and, incredibly, it’s free!
