Growing up across the street from a cornfield in Iowa couldn’t stop Garland from becoming "one of the country's best young professional comics…"(TravelIowa.Com). In fact, it didn't hold the Cedar Rapids native back the slightest bit. Garland has had his stand-up featured on MTV.com and recently worked over 12 shows on the Las Vegas Strip as the sole Opening Act for Steve-O & Tom Green's "Icons of Comedy: Original Pranksters Tour" at the legendary Starlite Theater in The Riviera Hotel & Casino, all before the age of 25. Garland has also been featured on SiriusXM, iHeartRadio, AmericasComedy.com and has two live albums in rotation on Spotify and Pandora Comedy Radio. His most recent album, "Unleashed" was recorded live here at The Vault and features an Introduction from Andy Milonakis. From college students, to small town families, to late-show drunks, Garland can adapt to any audience and deliver with an unsurpassed energy. There's nothing Garland can't handle being thrown his way, so come see why audiences everywhere are getting behind Tom Garland (and ducking for cover)!
