In 2009, Tom became the youngest ever recipient of the Melbourne Comedy Festival’s Best Newcomer Award for his debut hour, Tom Ballard Is What He Is. He was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe for his show Taxis & Rainbows & Hatred, while his 2016 show The World Keeps Happening was nominated for Best Show in both Melbourne and Edinburgh, as well as taking out the 2016 Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer and the inaugural John Pinder Prize at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. The show then went on to be recorded at the Comedy Theatre for Stan Australia’s One Night Stan series.
