On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Ton Sainsbury. 

Tom is one of NZ’s most popular creative minds. He’s starred on TV shows like Wellington Paranormal, Shortland Street, and Educators, written over 50 plays, and is widely loved for his short-form comedy videos, where he satirises Kiwi characters. He’s also just dipped his feet in the podcast game – and in March released his true crime mockumentary Smalltown Scandal. 

In this episode we chart Tom’s rise from ‘Snapchat Guy’ to househould name, courting controversy and his relationship with Paula Bennett, the time he entered the race to become Auckland mayor, his weirdest jobs, dream dinner party, approach to monetizing his content and much, much more. 

Tom might just be the most loved man in Kiwi comedy – and it’s easy to see why. He’s gentle, authentic, incredibly observant and hilarious – and his output of creative work will blow you away. You’ll love this one.
