Tommy Dean

Thu 5 October 2017

Tommy Dean is so well-loved on Australian TV, radio and stages that we’ve adopted the American-born comedian as our own, after he's lived here for over 25 years.

Tommy tells Barry Divola about the good times and bad times of his childhood – contracting a disease that paralysed him from the waist down at age eight, progressing from Southern Baptist to Mormonism to metal head, and developing a fascination with board games that continues to this day. He plays The Muppets, Melanie, Black Sabbath and more.
