Comedy

Josh Thomas

Whoopsie Daisy

Presented by Token Events

Josh is returning home to Australia for his first live show since the global success of his multi award-winning series Please Like Me.

He’s been living in LA making a new show, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.

This whistle stop tour of Australia will sell out, so get in quick.

His last live show was in 2013, so he must have something to talk about…

More Info

After making his mark as an award-winning and hugely-successful stand-up comedian and television panellist, Josh Thomas turned his hand to writing, acting and co-executive producing his own television show for ABC TV, inspired by his life and his comedy, called Please Like Me.

When Participant Media in the US chose to launch its brand-new Pivot television network with Please Like Me and to co-commission a second season with ABC TV, Josh was on his way to becoming an international success story.

He has been awarded by the Australian Academy (AACTA) and the Australian Writers Guild for his writing for Please Like Me, and has been nominated for AACTA and Logie Awards for his performances in the show. In addition, the show itself has won Best Comedy at the AACTA Awards, Most Outstanding Comedy at the Logie Awards and has been nominated as Best Comedy at the International Emmy Awards, Rose d’Or Awards and GLAAD Media Awards. The show has gained critical acclaim across the globe and has been named as one of the best TV shows of year by Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker, Time, The A.V. Club and the Los Angeles Times.
