"A living part of Australiana."

Tom Gleeson is a living part of Australiana, with all the rough edges included.

We don’t think we’ve heard the word "cunt" dropped that many times per minute ever, but each one seemed to be in its rightful context. Themes covered ranged from babies to paedophilia, rural living, geniuses and classism. This is one of the first shows of the entire festival where the comedian hasn’t relied on self-deprecation as a crutch. In fact, the entire show is about how happy Gleeson is, which is really hard to make fun of. Somehow he does.
