This tour marks Tom Gleeson’s triumphant return to the stand-up stage since his sold-out 2020-2021 Lighten Up tour. As he puts it, “Stand up is my specialty. Television is a beautiful distraction, but I’m looking forward to getting back to doing what I do best—poking and provoking a live crowd.”

He’s graced stages at comedy festivals all over the world and has notched up three Helpmann Award nominations. As if that weren’t impressive enough, he’s also the proud owner of a Gold Logie, an accolade that crowns him as the Most Popular Personality on Australian television.

Fans of his razor-sharp wit and playful banter won’t be disappointed, and newcomers are in for a treat. With his signature style and uproarious humour, Gleeson promises an unforgettable night of laughter.

So, get ready to gear up for a night of non-stop hilarity as Tom Gleeson takes his Gear tour to regional Victoria and beyond.
