See Tommy Ryman, semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, live on The Strand stage.

Named “Best of the Midwest’ at Gilda’s LaughFest, Tommy grew up in Minnesota jamming on clarinet for his new-age mom and kale-chip-making dad. He performs at top clubs, colleges, and festivals across the nation including the Great American Comedy Festival. Tommy was invited to be on Nickelodeon’s NickMom Night Out and has a full comedy special on Dry Bar Comedy. He has worked alongside Nick Swardson, Hannibal Buress, Maria Bamford, and Louie Anderson but none wear a cardigan quite like Tommy.

Featured on Paste Magazine and regularly heard on SirusXM and iheartradio, Tommy’s act can be described as absurdist and clever masked behind an endearing, innocent demeanor. This oddly adorable stand-up landed him No. 2 on iTunes comedy charts for his album Having the Time of My Life.

A Last Comic Standing judge raved, “I have never seen anything like [Tommy] before in my whole life, [he is] one-of-a find, fantastic!”
