Private bookings

A quiz just for you!

Do you want to bring people together? Some group bonding perhaps?

Private events, such as quizzes, are a GREAT way to encourage socialsing, build teams and generally have fun without worrying about that pesky public!

We can create a lively, entertaining and unique event specific to you, your family or your business. Live and online quizzes, stand-up comedians, live drag - we have it all Barbara! All at a very high standard and competitive price. Never have you seen such flexibility!

Events from just $75! Wild!

Your Fundraising Extravaganza


Look, we get it, there are lots of companies out there that do this. Why should you pick us? WELL! We are...


Comedy and entertainment is our LIFE and we want to share it with you. The Hot Nonsense is dedicated to comedy, joy and community and we will work personally with you to make sure any event or engagement suits you (and your budget)


This isn't some standard, run of the mill pub-trivia (unless you want that - we can do that too!), this is quirk-city, uplifting, high-engagement nonsense that you will NOT see anywhere else.


A few of our previous quiz rounds!
     - Where in the world is Jacinda Ardern?

     - Name those Gingers
     - Pop Divas who spell things

     - Cereal and the dark history of Dr Kellogg


By working with legends in the local and international comedy and cabaret scene, we know what's what in the world of entertainment. We can create bespoke events with high quality performing legends and are across all the latest comedy and entertainment trends around the world.


Tom (the boss) has been hosting, producing and managing large scale events since 2010. From Melbourne International Comedy Festival, to Adelaide Fringe, right through to flagship arts festivals - we've done it, we know how they work.


We engaged The Hot Nonsense to create online quiz events for our Fringe community and they 100% nailed the brief: shambolic, irreverent, hilarious, camp, accessible, welcoming, good old fashioned fun and a boatload of innuendo – it’s all my favourite things at once.”

Creative Director and CEO - Melbourne Fringe

Tom is smart, funny and friendly. He has a great ability to put anyone at ease and can create a good time just about anywhere. His trivia extravaganzas are especially fun!

Susan Provan 
Director - Melbourne International Comedy Festival 

Tom hosted a fundraising quiz for our business group and it was so much fun! It would be amazing to organise a quiz with friends from out of town! 


Tom's just a natural, he created a great team event we all enjoyed!

The trivia for the team on a Friday was a hoot!  It was so great to see the smiles on everyone’s faces when they participated in your fun rounds of quiz questions and activities.  Let’s do it again soon. 

Victoria Pope
General Manager - Melbourne International FIlm Festival

Tom's unique style of comedy and engaging personality make for an excellent quiz experience. The positive impact on our internal culture was wonderful, the quizzes have been a great way for our staff to have fun as a team; I recommend Tom and The Hot Nonsense for any organisation looking to bring a new level of relaxed social engagement to the office environment.

Karen Bryant
Midsumma Festival - Chief Executive

Tom is the greatest quiz master of all time. Period. His lip syncing, costume changing and full crowd sing alongs can't be beat!
