It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day. What to do? Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the open-mic night. “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and let’s be honest I had nothing better going on”.
Fast forward to present day, Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements. “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful.”
With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country. In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO Comedy Competition and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist. He performed on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005. He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2015.
Kevin has appeared on Comedy Central, NBC, CBS and Fox. His Dry Bar Comedy Special, Clean & Unfiltered has over 7 million views!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT KEVIN
Shelly Clark – Oregon State University
I greatly appreciated the clean humor provided by Tom. He was funny, personable, quirky, and memorable. I have had many students come up to me today to replay some of the jokes that they heard from Tom. They loved him!
Boyd Bender – WEA Trust
We had Tom perform at our Christmas party and were quite simply blown away. Tom provided just the right mix of comedy material and crowd interaction, and his closing bit – I can only describe as amazing. Everyone had a great time and people were still reciting his jokes the following Monday.
Kim Silvernagel – Pax River Officer’s Spouses Club
Thank you so much for traveling across the US to be with us for our fundraiser. You were fantastic! Everyone I run into who went to the show said it was the best comedy show we have ever done. It was a great success, raising over $4,000 for our charities…
