Tom’s here to make you laugh
Comedy Next Gen, ABC Comedy, Saturday at 9.20pm
COMEDY Next Gen returns to showcase the next generation of stand-up comedians. Filmed over 13 nights, the best up-and-coming comics perform their acts at venues across Australia.
First up in season two is Tom Walker (pictured) in his show Bee Boo, which was nominated for Best Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Bee Boo combines prop, mime, song and stand-up into something that is more than the sum of its parts. It’s a joyful embrace of idiocy and chaos; a completely dumb hour of nonsense with truths buddying up to lies like they’ve known each other for their whole lives. It doesn’t make sense, and it doesn’t want to. It is just Tom throwing everything on stage at once to give an honest portrait of what he finds funny.
