The world is on fire and we're all going to die, lol. Recorded in his hometown of Melbourne, Solastalgia is the first Radio 4 stand-up special from award-winning Millennial Australian comedian Tom Ballard.

It's his terrified, emotional and hilarious response to the climate crisis - what it means, how it makes us feel, what if anything we can do about it, and whether any of it is funny.

He'll even tell you what Solastalgia means.

Tom was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer in 2015 and for the main prize in 2016, and hosted his own daily late-night comedy show for ABC, Tonightly With Tom Ballard.

Recorded at Comedy Republic, Narrm/Melbourne, on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation.
