I’ve enjoyed Tom Shillue’s stand-up for a long time. One of the finest comics working the NY clubs today, Tom is casually himself on stage in a time when screaming and over-gesticulating seems to hold sway. He’s funny without frantic force, a tone mastered by folks like Newhart and Cosby. His first CD “Overconfident” was just released today. Here’s one of my favorite tracks from the album, where Tom finds Philadelphia’s ad campaign to entice lovers to visit the city to be a little disturbing. And possibly unpatriotic.
It’s not currently on sale at Amazon, but you can get it on iTunes or, if you prefer a physical copy with photos of Tom cavorting with Jen Dziura and Molly Crabapple, you can go to Tom’s Online Store.
