Tom Ballard

About

Tom Ballard is a comedian, writer, broadcaster, actor, philanthropist and philanderer.

In 2009 he became the youngest person ever to win the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Best Newcomer Award. Since then he’s co-hosted the Triple J breakfast show for four years, won an ARIA, supported the likes of Wil Anderson, Stephen Merchant and Danny Bhoy, roasted Jimmy Carr and even filled in for Tony Jones on ABC TV’s Q&A . 

While all that’s very impressive, you should also know that Tom has quite bad eczema, is scared of going to the gym and can not cook anything at all.
