Portrait of Nelly Thomas

Nelly Thomas

Nelly Thomas has been described as one of Australia’s most natural and intelligent comedians. As well as being an award-winning performer, she was listed as one of Australia’s ‘most innovative thinkers’ in the Age’s The Zone, and was featured on ABC Big Ideas.

Nelly recently released her latest comedy DVD, The Talk (a sexual health and ethics DVD for teens) and released her first book What Women Want with Random House in 2012, to popular and critical acclaim. In the same year, she also squeezed out her second human to rather less acclaim.

Nelly continues to do live work in the community and government sectors, in particular as a highly sought-after speaker, MC and performer specialising in social commentary, health promotion and women’s and adolescent’s issues.

And she was once an under-13s girls regional BMX champion. Enough said.
