Welcome to the Australian Tumbleweeds 2008 - Australia's most opinionated awards ceremony.

To get started on what promises to be yet another over-long and largely negative look back at Australian Comedy 2008, go to the Introduction page.

This year you can switch between categories using that nice menu on the left. If you'd like to skip straight to our tribute to Richard Marsland, please click here.

We would like to thank those who nominated and voted, especially those who sent comments.

If you enjoyed this year's Tumbleweeds you might like to join our mailing list. All you have to do is send us an e-mail with MAILING LIST in the subject line and at some point we might send you something about the 2009 awards. Or, more likely, forget to do it. Like this year.

We now have a page on Facebook, and we're still on MySpace. We'd love to see you on either site, just don't expect updates. Ever.


This year's ceremony was written by 13 schoolyards and Bean Is A Carrot, with Emergency Lalla Ward 10.

The website design and illustrations were completed in the wee hours by a man known only as "Pontypridd's biggest fan of Get This".

Zaphod provided the webspace and, quite importantly, reminded us to renew the domain at the right time.
