Tommy Sledge P.I., AKA Sledgeman, AKA Sledger. Pseudonym of Michael David Farrow, 1944- , q.v. Occupation, under this name: actor, “standup detective.” - Currently enjoying retirement.
A completely unique act - a hard-guy private eye out of the 1940's with all the lingo, the look and the low-life that goes with it. His observations deal with the stuff of life in the late 1990's, but as seen through the eyes (or peepers, blinkers, winkers, steely stare-scopes, as he would call them) of a hardboiled private eye from the days of black and white movies.
Prowling the stage in his fedora and retro coat, Sledge takes hilarious shots at all the stumbling blocks of life - relationships, the law and order system, love and marriage. A 16+ year veteran of the stand-up stage, a published author, radio personality, and writer of the Family Channel animated TV show "Monster Farm", Tommy Sledge brings a well-rounded, mainstream approach to the always timeless world of laughter.
He is the author of the comedy novel "Bullets, Blondes and The Big Ones To Bite" and he has aired his short radio plays - "Tommy Sledge's Dime Novel" - on radio stations across the country.
He worked with Marc Hershon in writing the screenplay for a post-apocalyptic sci-fi detective comedy called "Rim City". Tommy Sledge was the central character of the story. Very cool!
He wrote the feature film script for Full Moon - Paramount called "Remote".
