Tommy Little is the most exciting comedian of his generation, bringing his signature high energy and enthusiasm to the stage, night after night, year after year. His third Amazon Comedy Special Pretty Fly For a Dickhead was just released in April on Prime Video. Tommy is beloved across Australia as one half of popular national radio program The Carrie and Tommy Show.

With their combined wit, charisma, and passion for music, Brooke and Tommy are set to lead an unforgettable celebration of the year in Australian music, in a night filled with exceptional performances from Australia’s top artists and exciting moments.

Brooke Said:

“I’m absolutely thrilled to co-host the 2023 ARIA Awards alongside Tommy. Music has the power to bring people together, and it’s an honour to be a part of an event that celebrates the incredible talent within Australia’s music industry.”

“Tommy and I can’t wait to bring our energy and love for music to the ARIA stage in Sydney, and we promise you a night filled with laughter, amazing performances, and plenty of celebrations. It’s going to be a night to remember!”

Tommy Said:

“Brooke Boney and I are the perfect Yin and Yang. She is professional, articulate and extremely hardworking, so I guess I will just do the other bits. I absolutely love Australian music but I am also tone deaf, so this is the closest I will ever get to an ARIA and I can’t wait.”
