Who said a comedian can’t be genuinely smart, deeply caring and outrageously funny at the same time?

Take Tom Simmons. He’s got it all - and more!

Tom is not afraid to strip long held beliefs of their credibility with an unprecedented blend of searing logic and great jokes. He questions everything and everyone, respectfully but with absolutely no respect at all. Everyday situations as a father and husband, TV consumer, grocery shopper, tourist, hobby philosopher and average bystander -- Tom finds comedy wherever he takes a good look.

Stand-up comedy at its finest

“I’m a likable misanthrope, a contrarian who believes we are doing it all wrong. And it’s just fun pointing that out through jokes”, says Simmons about his motivation. Over the years, he has earned himself a ton of respect from other comedians and his audience alike for his originality and depth.

Judges agreed when Tom Simmons won the 2009 San Francisco Comedy Competition, an event from which talents like Robin Williams and Ellen DeGeneres rose to fame. This win is the latest milestone in a 15-year career that has always been dedicated to one crowd-pleasing denominator: “I want the time people are at my show to be the most enjoyable part of their entire day.” Such enthusiasm made him also two-time finalist at the Boston Comedy Festival.
