Before the gang headed out on a weekend stop as part of the B&T Comedy Show, they got up early to welcome comedian friend Patti Vasquez and Gary Gullman. They also used this opportunity to talk about how absurd it is to travel with Tom. We also got a rare visit from the one and only Love Brothers!
It only took two years of relentless pursuit of stage time for Gary Gulman to finally feel comfortable enough to give up his cushy accounting job and become a full time standup comedian. Of course he did have to take on a part time job at Starbucks so he could pay the bills, but it was still a pretty big step. An even larger step in his career came recently when he finished third on NBC’s comedy reality show "Last Comic Standing." First, Gulman won his way onto the show by beating out hundreds of other comedians from across the country, then he eliminated seven other houseguests to secure a spot on the final episode and go head to head with Alonzo Bodden and the eventual winner, John Heffron. Gulman has appeared on both "The Tonight Show" and "Late Night with David Letterman," he played football for Boston College, and is a huge fan of Oreo cookies.
While up on stage, comedienne Patti Vasquez is more like a close personal friend sharing humorous stories than she is a joke teller. Call her act "comedy with heart" or call it hysterically funny, Vasquez entertains audiences with her charming perspectives on politics, relationships and growing up in an Irish-Mexican-American family. Along with her storytelling, Patti keeps her audiences in stitches by pointing out the oddities in the everyday events and situations that anyone can relate to.
