Tom Gleeson is bringing his Hard Quiz Live show to Geelong, Bendigo and Warrnambool

This may be peak Gleeson, the most perfect expression of his powers – Hard Quiz, a huge live crowd and no rules.

‘Hard Quiz’ Master, Overlord and Gold Logie Award-winner Tom Gleeson is adding a third dimension to Australia’s hardest TV quiz, swapping the studio for a theatre and hitting the road.

Starting in Cairns in February, this tour will go to Warrnambool, Adelaide, Wollongong, Geelong, Noosa, Gold Coast, Caloundra, Mildura, Dubbo, Bendigo, Wyong, Sutherland and Frankston across the year.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around the region here.

Broadcast on ABC and now in its seventh season, Hard Quiz is a well-known Australian television comedy quiz show. Hosted by Tom Gleeson, the show is a spin-off of his “Hard Chat” segment on the satirical television news program The Weekly with Charlie Pickering. It’s the game show where the host doesn’t hide his contempt, and the prize is the chance to stare down a camera while holding a mug.

But this live show will be ‘Hard Quiz’ like you’ve never seen it. Audience members will be pulled on stage for a live roasting from Tom, the most brutal quizmaster since the inquisition. When he’s not flaying contestants for the enjoyment of audience members, he’s a successful stand-up comedian who knows how to command a theatre.

Gleeson has just recently taken the show across Australia and now it’s regional Vic’s turn. Jackie and Paul won in Darwin, Greg and Natai were winners in Sydney and Blair, Sid and Pauline were just a few who raised the big brass mug on stage in Melbourne… AND NOW IT’S YOUR CHANCE as Hard Quiz Live Gets Regional in 2023!

“After SOLD OUT shows in every Australian capital city, HARD QUIZ LIVE is hitting the road. I’ve heard your desperate cries of, “Why aren’t you doing a show in my town?”, Tom says.

“So, I’m doing my best to get to your sh*thole. The city shows were loose, so these shows will be feral!”

Be a part of Hard Quiz Live, an experience like no other!

Hard Quiz Live arrives at Lighthouse Theatre in Warrnambool on February 10, Costa Hall in Geelong on March 17 and Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo on May 13 2023. You can purchase tickets here on Friday, October 21.
