No politician, celebrity or public figure will be safe in Tom’s new digital series premiering now.
Comedy Central Australia and New Zealand is proud to announce that Tom Sainsbury, comedian, writer and playwright, has joined the network as its latest shortform content contributor.
Sainsbury, who has long entertained our nation with his content, went viral on Snapchat after doing satirical impersonations of New Zealand politicians and personalities using the ‘face swap’ filter to cover his face.
His own creations, like squeaky-voiced excitable Maz, and his famous face-offs of power figures like Paula Bennett and John Key, have fast become social media sensations here, and now, Sainsbury is taking on Australian culture.
His first video for Comedy Central, which launched on April Fools Day (Sunday April 1, 2018) featured a new character that is well-known both here and across the ditch, Australia's divisive Pauline Hanson.
“I’m thrilled to have found some new bosses in the crew at Comedy Central Australia and New Zealand,” Sainsbury said. “I love being given the opportunity to play around with different characters and can’t wait to show you who will come out next,” he added.
From this month you can catch Sainsbury’s new characters on the Comedy Central website and social media channels as well as Comedy Central TV on Sky Channel 11.
