Review: Tom Ballard in My ego is better than your ego
Tom Ballard in his new show My ego is better than your ego once again proves why he continues to be a popular comedian.
For the show Ballard tells tales of ego, mostly his own, and what it means to be able to completely fulfil yourself. During his stories he also opens up on his point of view in experiences that may have caused others some grief, mainly a comment about the holocaust that cause outrage to be directed at the public broadcaster Triple J.
Ballard is in his usual form of being seemingly very comfortable on the stage while mastering his craft to easily connect to his audience. It is the style of performance people have become accustomed to when seeing Ballard live, yet he continues to throw in new shocks where it’s not expected to keep the crowd guessing and laughing.
Ballard’s family and time growing up still feature heavily in his work with a new combination of stories that outline how he developed his passion to perform and fulfil his ego.
His continues to maintain his impressive presence on stage and a persona that is comfortable confronting trickier issues head on in his comedy. His show is a fun night out and still proved popular with many performances filling up regularly.
Tom Ballard in My ego is better than your ego has two nights left tonight and tomorrow. Tickets from Fringetix.
