Gentle Giants Tour: Stand-up Comedy
Laugh your shoes off with THE GENTLE GIANTS TOUR, featuring stand up comedy from Tommy Morgan Jr. and Jamie Carbone!
Mix equal parts pop culture, wry observation, and overweight teenager and throw them from the ivory tower of the upper middle class and you have Tommy Morgan Jr., writing jokes while becoming slightly more feral each day.
Tommy currently lives in Des Moines, Iowa, where he produces and hosts the successful comedy and overeating bonanza known as Adult Pizza Party. He has performed at the Beast Village and Floodwater comedy festivals and has been published in McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.
Jamie Carbone is a comedian whose jokes are a combination of nerdy experiences and faking adulthood that have helped him find a voice for himself, originally in West Virginia, now in Chicago. He has been a featured performer for festivals across the country, including Boston’s Thunderfest and Columbus’ Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, and is a past winner of West Virginia’s Last Comic Standing. In Chicago, he produces Snack Attack, a bimonthly showcase where great comedy and delicious snacks come together. In his free time, he gets into arguments about Frasier on the internet.
