Tom Gleeson spoofs Sydney as a tourist destination

Tom Gleeson slays Sydney as a tourist destination.

Tom Gleeson’s Sydney spoof

Aussie comedian and television presenter Tom Gleeson, in a move he says may have just lost him 4.8 million Logie votes, absolutely slays Sydney in a segment he created for The Weekly’s ‘Go Away’ segment.

Gleeson, known for his acerbic wit and hilarious humour, gives Sydney no quarter, with thigh-slapping one-liners such as saying Sydney is “the city that built a bridge but can’t get over it” and “Bondi is the Fosters of beaches: tourists love it but the locals know it’s a bit shit”.

Even if you’re a Sydneysider it’d be difficult not to laugh at Gleeson’s scathing yet hysterical best. Spare a few minutes and give yourself a chuckle. 

Do you agree with any of Tom’s ‘digs’? Or does he go too far? If you could respond to his aspersions, what would you say?

    Again his “potty mouth” ruins any chance of humor ,

    Sydney is a dismal place, and I don't like the Bridge either!
    Bondi Beach is a farce - I said "this is Bondi beach?, I thought it was bigger than this puddle"
    I reckon he's only telling the truth that some people don't want to hear.
