Tommy and his Mommy
Comedian Tommy Ryman joins his mom, singer-songwriter Barb Ryman, this Thursday at the Comedy Corner Underground. The two bring "The Tommy and His Mommy Show" an act that is filled with comedy, music and shenanigans.
Tommy Ryman, featured as one of the Twin Cities' Funniest People by Metro Magazine, has a routine described as being "absurdist and clever, masked behind a very likable and innocent demeanor" and "disturbingly adorable." He is a favorite of audiences at top clubs and colleges around the nation, and is regularly featured on Rooftop Comedy. Tommy has caught the eye of some of the nation's top comedians, having opened for the likes of Nick Swardson, Maria Bamford and Louie Anderson. He was invited to perform in the prestigious Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater and was signed to StandUp! Records.
A natural storyteller with a deep compassion for the lost and forgotten voices of our culture, Barb Ryman expects music to be more than entertaining. With a crystalline voice and skillfully played guitar, she delivers a rich mosaic of contemporary folk. Her career launched in 1996 when the Star Tribune ranked her CD, "Lay Me Open", a top-10 release across all genres, and the Pioneer Press proclaimed "You can't help being amazed at the power of her presence and the sound of her voice. You can't help but listen". Now with five CDs, she has received nine nominations for Minnesota Music Awards including Songwriter of the Year, Recording of the Year and Song of the Year. Also known for her topical humor, ABC television bought rights to her satirical song "All American Dysfunctional Family" to promote a 2006 sitcom pilot.
Both have new CDs in the works, Barb with sixth album "Catch the Sunset" and Tommy with his debut "Bath Time with Tommy Ryman". Find out more about the duo atwww.tommyryman.com and www.barbryman.com, respectively.
