In 2008 Tom created Students of Stand-up, a Workshop designed to help those just starting out in stand-up comedy. After the first 6-week session was over, word began to spread and eventually additional Workshops were added. Stand-up Comedy 101 focuses on those new to stand-up comedy who have limited or no prior stand-up experience. The Stand-up Comedy Writer’s Workshop is for those who’ve been on stage a few times and are looking to take their material to the next level, focusing on writing and fine tuning new and existing material. Just added is the Stand-up 4 Kids Workshop open to those ages 6-16. Tom was also just added as an instructor at the Capistrano Acting Academy. Tom’s extensive comedic background has earned him praise from students and professional comedians alike. His simple yet effective approach to understanding comedy creates a fun and positive atmosphere no matter what your age or skill level may be.
