Tom Shillue's cult following started at Moonwork in New York City where monthly, literally hundreds of hipsters pile in to catch his acerbic wit, whether telling stories about his light-saber obsessed youth, or mulling over the Constitution's sex appeal, or the dangers of freezy headaches. The sardonic Shillue refers to his comedy as "tales from the not-so-dark side" of growing up in the burbs.
Backstage named him the top New York Comic, saying, "There isn't anything Shillue can't do." Critics say he is always on point, original, and one of the top comics in the country. The New York Times called Shillue "inspired and subversive" and The New York Post said he is "brilliant."
Shillue's fan base spread across the country leading to multiple television appearances including: Conan O'Brien, NBC's Late Friday and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. If you missed him performing stand up, you are guaranteed to see him in one of the hundreds of commercials he's appeared in, such as Snickers, Verizon, Audi and Lay's Potato Chips. "People stop me every day and say 'Hey, you're that guy, right?" Shillue explains modestly. Yep, he is.
