"HAPPY BABY" Comedy Showcase
An intimate dinner performance at Uncommon Ground, hosted by Aaron Putnam
FEATURING: Zach Martina, Matty Ryan & Tom E. Thompson
A supportive family, a loving relationship and kids who adore him, thats the American Dream. Unless youre Zach Martina, then its a recipe for skepticism and anxiety. Using his sarcastic wit, creative wordplay and a loveable arrogance, Zach brings his big personality to crowds across America as they wonder: I dont know what hes freaking out about, but its pretty funny.
Performing at clubs across the country and at events such as the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, The World Series of Comedy and the Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival, Zach has had the good fortune to share the stage with the likes of Dave Chappelle, Flight of the Conchords, Hannibal Buress & Rory Scovel. Zach brings an energy all his own and points the finger of blame at every single person; except himself.
Born and raised in an Irish neighborhood on Chicagos South Side, Matty Ryan has been touring and performing throughout the country for years. An alumnus of the Second City, Matty has appeared at The Hollywood Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Comedy Store, The Hollywood Improv, Laugh Factory Chicago, UCB LA, UCB East, The Knitting Factory Brooklyn, iO Theater, Zanies, The Chicago Improv, and UP Comedy Club. In 2013 he was invited to perform at the TBS Just for Laughs Festival in Chicago; in 2016 he made his feature film debut with a role in Who Gets the Dog (nominated for Best Actor in the 2016 Midwest Independent Film Festival); also in 2016, recorded a standup set for MTVs Acting Out, and in early 2017 made his network television debut with a guest star role on NBCs Chicago Justice.
Tom E. Thompson:
Tom E. (pronounced Tommy) figured out at an early age that humor brings people together and is an easy way to make friends. Being a self-diagnosed food addict and sometimes maybe alcoholic Tom E. shares his struggles of balancing his previous party life with his new found role as husband and step-dad to two teenage daughters. Come listen to him explain that he has no idea what hes doing, but hes laughing all the way through it.
Tom E. Is also co-host of the Miserable Retail Slave podcast.
