Can a cabaret show have too much attitude? Too much pizzaz? Or a young star have too much showbiz in his veins? Not when the star is Tom Sharah, winner of the 2009 Sydney Cabaret Showcase. Too much is just enough.
After wowing audiences at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival and The Noosa Long Weekend Festival, Tom comes to Melbourne for the first time direct from three sell-out Sydney seasons. Tom is as talented a stand-up comedian as he is a singer. Whether confessing to a pre-pubescent Spice Girls obsession or setting the scene for the ups and downs of today’s young romantic-with-attitude, Tom weaves his own stories and Gen-Y observations in and out of a smart program of pop tunes old and new all tinged with the hilarious, in-your-face, high maintenance attitude of the man himself!
The Australian: ‘Tom Sharah has a great music-theatre voice that he uses with taste and intelligence beyond his years. He was extremely, delightfully funny.’
