Tom Simmons is somewhat of an enigma having been born in New York City but then raised in the deep south. With theses polar opposites as a foundation, Tom was destined to either become a standup comedian or spend a lifetime in psychotherapy. Luckily for his insurance company, he choose comedy. Tom's goal as a comedian is not just to make people laugh (though he prides himself on doing just that), he wants to be listed among the best of the best, so that maybe one day the name Simmons will be used in the same conversations as Seinfeld, Carlin and Rock. And with an act that covers a broad range of topics, and appeals to a wide variety of people, he may be well on his way.
Nick Griffin began doing standup comedy back in 1987 as a way to voice his frustrations with life and to avoid having a job with a boss. Sure he may be dark, cynical, depressed and has a problem getting along with women, but Griffin is one of our absolute favorite guests and is a must see if he performs in a club near you. Nick has been featured on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "The Late Show w/ David Letterman," "The Late Late Show w/ Craig Ferguson" and recently finished a brand new comedy CD "Bring Out the Monkey."
