Tommy Johnagin began his stand-up career at the ripe young age of 18, a decision his parents were less than thrilled with. But how could they argue this life choice when their son obviously possessed a gift for joke telling, and more importantly, promised to pay them back for the six semesters of college he "wasted." While on stage (and hopefully on the air) Tommy doesn’t curse, but what he does do is find the humor in his life and the people he meets, (especially in his practical joke loving father). Tommy has been featured on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and and was a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing." Follow Tommy on twitter. Tommy's new album, "Stand Up Comedy 2" is available now!
Anyone who has ever spent any time listening to the BOB&TOM show has no doubt heard a song by legendary comedian Heywood Banks. That’s because Heywood’s catalogue of classic tunes includes fan favorites like "Big Butter Jesus," "I Like Summer," "Toast," "18 Wheels on a Big Rig," "Punjab" and "Wiper Blades" just to name a few. In fact, Heywood has appeared on 36 of BOB&TOM’s comedy albums, more than any other artist by far. We’ve just been informed that Heywood may be adding to his already extensive list of songs when he visits us next. Now we’re just hoping he knows the lyrics. Check out Heywood in "GeoPirates."
Comedian Ruben Paul, not to be confused with the actor who played Pee Wee Herman, has been keeping busy. Ruben's acting resume continues to grow including roles in films such asGround Control, Deliver Us From Eva and Pensacola Wings. As you can see, Ruben is a man on the move, but he still finds time to continue his work on the road touring the comedy club circuit. Ruben's act has been featured on Comic View, The Late Late Show and HBO Comedy Showcase just to name a few. On twitter and facebook.
