Tom’s here to make you laugh

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

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.
