Join him for an evening of stories so normal, they’re radical.The magazine Time Out New York labeled Tom “Professionally Clever”, and the title fits. Tom has gained a world-wide following with his highly praised Comedy Central specials and his top-selling CD, “Tom Shillue: Overconfident,” which the Boston Globe named one of the Top 10 Comedy Albums of 2007. A former correspondent on The Daily Show, Tom has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and in the feature film Mystery Team.

The New York Times called him “Inspired”, and the New York Post said, simply, “Brilliant”.

He was recently awarded best One Man Show at the ECNY awards for his show “SUPERNORMAL” at The Green Room, in which Time Out NY said he “really [shone] as a performer and a wit.”
Recently, he has expanded his audience as one of New York’s most well-known storytellers with the launch of his own monthly comedy/storytelling show at Comix, TELL: WORLD’S COLLIDE as well as regular performances at the Moth’s Mainstage and Risk! at Joe’s Pub.
