Tommy Dean

Uniquely observant stand-up comic

Tommy Dean is an American comedian with a unique understanding of Australia, its audiences and above all, what makes us laugh. Indeed, the cultural divide between Americans and Australians provides much of his intelligent observational humour.

Tommy's performance style is laid back to say the least and he's consistently a stand out winner with audiences across his adopted nation. Firmly established as one of Australia's most sought-after comic performers and writers, he is a huge hit with theatre audiences, corporate clients and festival producers and on TV and radio shows.

In constant demand on the live circuit, Tommy is a regular headline act in comedy venues around Australia. He has also performed in many of the leading comedy clubs in the USA as well as New Zealand, North America, Europe and South East Asia.

Some of Tommy Deans' TV credits include: Spick and Specks, Sunrise, The Glasshouse, O'Loghlin, (regular guest and writer), Backburner (writer), The Fat (guest and writer), Good News Week, Thank God it's Friday, The Today Show, and the Take No Prisoners Amnesty International Comedy Festival for Foxtel.

With his brilliantly insightful and clean humour, genial manner and hilarious routines, Tommy never fails to connect with and impress any audience.

Client testimonials

It was refreshing to find a stand-up act that uses comic talent and delivery to get laughs without the need to resort to the smut that so many other comedians base their acts upon.

Not only is he clever and witty, he is a top bloke who will always be welcome at our club as a performer and guest.

Your performance on the day was awesome.


I just had to write to tell you how awesome Tommy Dean was at our lunchtime session for our property investor clients last weekend. He was on the money in terms of matching his performance to the interests of his audience, very careful re language which was great and it was noted by many that he kept them laughing from start to finish. I had tears down my face but so did many others.

Destiny Financial

From the moment he was on stage he had the crowd of 3,000 wrapped up in his storytelling and laughing at his brilliant humour. We loved him and the crowed loved him. Tommy Dean was by far the most popular performer of the night.

Jack Morton Worldwide

Tommy was very professional to work with – he did his research on our company and delivered a tailored performance which was both unique and entertaining. Our event was a resounding success and Tommy was certainly a big part of that.

We had a wonderful Ball on the weekend and it was fabulous to have Tommy as part of the night. There was much laughter and smiles around the room during his performance and I had so much positive feedback from guests on his great humour and stories.
