We ate beforehand at Thai Aroma a couple blocks away (don't recommend), but the food and drinks are competitively priced inside the venue. Just make sure you get there a little bit early and ask for a table in front of you.

After all these years he still got it. Hilarious from the moment he stepped on the stage. His improv is phenomenal like no other. If you can please go see him, u will def leave with your stomach hurting!!

I really enjoyed Tommy’s stand-up show here in Chicago. At times, he literally had my eyes watering from laughing so bad! Overall he was good, but there were times where he carried on certain jokes too long (i.e. licorice, LOL). He is skilled...continued
