TOM BRISCOE

From New York -- Comedian Tom Briscoe! (as heard on Sirius XM Radio) Ever have a job that never seems to show up on your resume?

Internationally known stand up comic Tom Briscoe has had a few dozen! Breaking out of the cycle of full-time blue- and white-collar jobs into the world of a full-time comedy career wasn't easy, but it's darn funny now that he plays Las Vegas, Atlantic City and all over the world! In this original one-man show, funnyman Briscoe puts a comic twist on the challenges and travails of never finding one's 'place' in the workplace. Truly a show everyone can relateRidiculously numerous false starts in other careers - from billboard painter to national sales trainer to beer truck driver - have provided the comedic fodder for his critically acclaimed and appropriately named One Man Show

SO ... I GOT FIRED FROM THAT JOB! The Tom Briscoe Comedy Show is hilarious. Enjoy original Stand Up Comedy from one of the best.
