Comedian, MC and Presenter
Comedian Tommy Little has been described as the most exciting young comedian of his generation and is widely tipped as 'the next big thing in comedy'. Popular, talented and a gifted improviser, Tommy has been quietly building a following on the stand up circuit since his 2009 Melbourne Comedy Festival debut show, Getaway, which chronicles Tommy's attempt to make his own TV travel show (including a bit of nude bungy in New Zealand).
Tommy has returned to the festival every year and in 2011 he smashed it with a sell-out run of his show A Fistful Of Apologies which went on to be included as part of ABC-TV's Warehouse Comedy Festival series. His 2013 show, Sex, Drugs and Herbal Tea filled a venue for four-and-a-half weeks in the Adelaide Fringe and doubled his 2012 Melbourne International Comedy Festival audience.
Tommy is a regular face on the Aussie comedy scene performing at premiere venues across the country and earning new fans as he goes. He mixes up his club work with corporate events acting as an MC for Blue Chip companies such as Sony, Optus and Austereo.
Tommy provided live crosses from the track as part of Channel Nine's Spring Racing Coverage in 2009 and has appeared on The Today Show and Mornings With Kerrie-Anne. Tommy also makes making regular appearances on radio on Nova's Launchpad and performing stand-up on Hughesy and Kate's Melbourne Nova Breakfast show.
Tommy put his hand up in 2008 to write for Channel 31's talk show, Studio A, hosted by Dave Thornton. When Dave left the show Tommy was offered the host chair and jumped at the opportunity to host a show on the channel that launched the careers of Rove McManus and Hamish and Andy. Over 2010 and 2011 Tommy interviewed guests such as Glenn Robbins, Josh Thomas and Charlie Pickering and his assured debut raised more than a few eyebrows in industry circles.
2013 was a big year for Tommy. He appeared on our television screens every Wednesday night for Channel Ten's new late night show This Week Live. Tommy co-hosted alongside Tom Gleeson, Meshel Laurie and Dave Thornton. He also hosted another Channel Ten series called A League Of Their Own, which started airing in September this year. He has also appeared as a panellist on ABC TV's Tractor Monkeys.
Not content with just live work and television, Tommy has also made regular appearances on Nova radio filling in for Hughesy and Kate as well as weekend breakfast.
In 2014, Tommy and Meshel Laurie will take over the reins of the Nova 100 breakfast slot, replacing the very successful team of Hughesy and Kate.
Tommy Little is smart, engaging, charming and confident and extremely capable of holding a room in the palm of his hand. As well as his comedy, which bubbles with an irresistible energy, Tommy also acts as an MC at corporate events for blue chip companies such as Sony, Optus and Austereo.
