Drawing from his middle class Catholic upbringing, Tom Shillue’s comically crafted tales of growing up in suburban Massachusetts and life in NY are both poignant and hysterically, universally relatable. In a word, they are so normal, they are radical. Tom’s mesmerizing ability as a storyteller has gained him a cult following and also earned Supernormal the ECNY Award for Best One Man Show.
A former correspondent on The Daily Show, Tom has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Last Comic Standing, and in the feature film Mystery Team. Tom has also hosted the wildly successful monthly storytelling series TELL: World’s Collide as well as regular performances at the Moth’s Mainstage and Risk! at Joe’s Pub. The New York Times has called him “Inspired”, and the New York Post said, simply, “Brilliant”. Backstage named Tom the Top New York Comic, saying “There isn’t anything Shillue can’t do”, and fans on Comedy Central’s website voted Tom one of the top ten comedians in the country in their 2008 showdown.
