Tom Doig is a writer, performer, editor, producer and moron.
Born and bred in Wellington, based in Melbourne, Tom has performed in every State and Territory in Australia. His theatre works include Survival of the Prettiest (2004), The Badness Hour (2006), Hitlerhoff (2008), One-Arm and Three-Arms in the Swamp (2009) and Selling Ice to the Remains of the Eskimos (2010).

Tom's latest and most exciting project is Moron to Moron. In July 2010, Tom (with Tama Pugsley) attempted to cycle 1,400 kilometres across northern Mongolia, from a small town called Moron to a smaller town also called Moron. So far this misadventure has spawned a blog, a Pecha Kucha performance and a short documentary. Tom is also working on a long (book-length) manuscript, to be published by leading Australian publishers Allen & Unwin in May 2013.
Tom has worked as an Associate Producer for the Next Wave Festival (2009-2010), Associate Director of the National Young Writers’ Festival (2006-2007) and Editor of Voiceworks magazine (2004-2006). Tom has an MA in Creative Writing and Hitler Comedy from the University of Melbourne. He is available for weddings, funerals and hen's nights.
