Show do Tom was a Brazilian comedy and talk show aired by Rede Record and launched on September 27, 2004. Two years ago, the program was on Sunday at 5pm, but now is Sunday 11pm. The program has also changed; before it was recommended free for all, but now is not recommended for children under 10 years.


Tom Cavalcante (host) left Rede Globo in July, 2004. In the same year, he started a solo program on Rede Record. Directed by Vildomar Batista, this program obtained 10 points in IBOPE.

Since he was forbidden by justice of presenting the same numbers he used at Rede Globo, he began to do sketches of big productions such as O Aprendiz, hosted by Roberto Justus in Brazil. The principal comedic style of the show is improvisational comedy, with emphasis on local talents (or sometimes local street figures) or well-known celebrities. Humourists such as Tiririca and Pedro Manso were hired for the show.
