Escape the winter blues and spend an evening laughing as professional comedians; Tommy Ryman and Carmen Lynch, co-headline Tibbits Annual Comedy Fest. Sponsored by HaasCaywood PC.


Tommy Ryman a semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, is an acclaimed comedian. His oddly-adorable stand-up landed him number two on iTunes comedy charts for his album Having the Time of My Life. Named Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laugh Fest, Ryman grew up in Minnesota jamming on clarinet for his new-age mom and kale-chip-making dad. He performs at top clubs, colleges, and festivals across the nation including the Great American Comedy Festival. Ryman was invited to be on Nickelodeon’s NickMom Night Out and has a full comedy special on Dry Bar Comedy. He’s worked alongside Nick Swardson, Hannibal Buress, Maria Bamford and Louie Anderson but none wear a cardigan quite like he does. Featured on Paste Magazine and regularly heard on SirusXM and iheartradio, Ryman’s’s act is described as “absurdist and clever masked behind an endearing, innocent demeanor.” A Last Comic Standing judge raved, “I have never seen anything like [Tommy] before in my whole life, [he is] one-of-a-kind, fantastic!” To view his website, click HERE
