Hard Quiz Live – Hosted by Tom Gleeson

We only link to official ticket sellers for Hard Quiz Live

Hard Quiz is hitting the road in 2022 with an all new stage show and a huge national tour.

The Hard Quiz Master, Overlord and Gold Logie Award Winner, Tom Gleeson, is taking the Big Brass Mug out for a spin, swapping the studio for a theatre and adding a third dimension to Australia’s hardest quiz.

Hard Quiz is a game show where the host doesn’t hide his contempt and the prize is the chance to stare down a camera while holding a mug – it’s also a ratings phenomenon, which is now in its seventh season on the ABC.

This will be Hard Quiz like you have never seen it, with audience members pulled on stage for a live roasting from the most brutal quizmaster since the inquisition. When Tom isn’t flaying contestants for your enjoyment he is also one of Australia’s funniest and most successful stand-up comedians who commands a theatre like no-one else. This may be peak Gleeson, the most perfect expression of his powers – Hard Quiz, a huge live crowd and no rules.

Starting in Canberra in March this huge tour will take in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle, Perth and Brisbane across 2022.

“People have been asking me for ages to bring Hard Quiz to their city.  Finally I can say YES! Join me for Hard Quiz live in your hometown … away from the watchful eye of the ABC lawyers. Things will get loose!” – Tom Gleeson
