Do you want a double pass to see Tom Ballard? See below for details.
A wise man once said “Cogito Ergo Sum”: I think therefore I am.
||Not only does Tom Ballard exist, he also manages to do hilarious comedy. In 2010,for his brand new show, Tom shall drop some philosophical gems that even Descartes would be proud of, as well as jokes concerning his penis. It’s basically fun for the whole high and low brow family. With topics ranging from death to radio to the worst thing he’s ever done in his entire life, Tom’s Cogito Ergo Some Funny is an hour of stand-up that will make you both laugh and ponder at the same time.
Last year, at age 19, this law school drop-out became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious Best Newcomer award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Not bad progress for someone whose first stand up gig was at the brave age of 14, where he wore a bad shirt and then freaked out when he met Ross Noble.

Norway’s Datarock have returned with the follow up to the geek-chic party album of 2005, Datarock Datarock and will be heading down under to serve it up live to Australian audiences.
Their debut mixed Happy Mondays punk-funk with warped Devo humour, and was well received locally with ‘Computer Camp Love’ landing #12 on Triple J’s Hottest 100. The new album, Red, has lost none of the duo’s aptitude for so-classic-you-must-haveheard-it-before hooks, but this follow-up is an altogether more concept-driven beast.
