About Me

Tommy Ryman grew up with a new-age, folksinging mother and a traditional, Lutheran insurance-agent father. This XY equation evidently equals: acclaimed comedian. Ryman has earned the title of Semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Ryman’s act can be described as absurdist and clever, masked behind a very likable and innocent demeanor, often thought of as disturbingly adorable. He is a favorite among audiences at top clubs and colleges around the nation, and he is regularly featured on Rooftop Comedy, SiriusXM, and iheartradio. Early in his career, Ryman was sought out by some of the nation’s top comedians opening for the likes of Louie Anderson, Maria Bamford, and Nick Swardson. He was invited to perform at the prestigious Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater, and was featured as one of the “Twin Cities’ Funniest People” by Metro Magazine. Ryman is signed to StandUp! Records and assures audiences that his comedy album Bath Time with Tommy Ryman has a tasteful album cover.
