One Night Stan: Tom Ballard

Tom Ballard stand-up show The World Keeps Happening is the latest special to feature in the One Night Stan showcase, available from today.

“What with the world going to hell in a hand basket and all, I thought I may as well try to fix everything by yelling at an audience for 80 minutes,” Ballard says. “Thanks to Stan, you can now stream my expletive-ridden rantings from the comfort of your own home/bunker as the coming Apocalypse descends upon us in a fiery blaze of populism, climate destruction and violence. Enjoy!”

As well as receiving the prestigious Helpmann Award in 2016, The World Keeps Happening was also nominated for the Barry Award for best show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Comedy Award at the Edinburgh Fringe. A rising star of Australian media, including four years co-hosting the triple j breakfast show, Ballard is leading the charge for the next generation of comic talent.

Next to be featured is Sam Simmons with his show Stop Being Silly on April 14.
