BIOGRAPHY/SHOW DESCRIPTION:
 
Growing up across the street from a cornfield in Iowa couldn't stop Tom Garland from becoming "one of the country's best young professional comics..."(TravelIowa.com). Most recently, Garland's stand-up was featured on MTV.com and as the sole Opening Act for Steve-O & Tom Green's "Icons of Comedy: Original Pranksters Tour" at the legendary Starlite Theater at The Riviera Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. He's undoubtedly shared the stage with some of the nation's top headliners, including Joel McHale, B.J. Novak, Eric Andre, Michael Ian Black, Josh Blue, Loni Love, and Yakov Smirnoff. Garland has also been heard on SiriusXM Radio, iHeartRadio, TheCollegeTownLife.com, Pandora, and Spotify, all by the age of 25. He now returns to Las Vegas next weekend to appear in The 2013 World Series of Comedy at the Tuscany Suites Casino. Its no wonder that when Eastern Iowa's KGAN CBS2 & KFXA FOX 28 featured Garland on their morning news they Headlined his incredible story "Iowa Kid Now 'Big Time.'" Nate Rankin of AmericasComedy.com also raves, "This dude's game is comedy and not the kind of comedy you read in one of those joke books...Tom Garland has a powerful personality...hailed by numerous sources as a huge up-and-comer." 
 
"From Iowa to Vegas" (AmericasComedy.com Headline) and everywhere in between, "Iowa's Funny Man" (Iowa City Press-Citizen Headline) can adapt to any audience and deliver with an unsurpassed energy. To learn more visit:www.tomgarlandcomedy.com

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • Dwight York
    August 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Dwight York

    “I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.

    Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.

    York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a  compliment to all three master comics.
