ATL Comedy Arts Fest Grand Finale

Live Taping on the Mainstage
7/24 at 8:00pm

Tickets $20

A vast array of comic talent competes at venues all over metro Atlanta, from Southern Fried Comics, Urban Comics, LGBT Comics and more…..there’s no other festival like this in the South. When the dust settles and the Best of the Fest is crowned, they will tape a comedy special on the mainstage at Aurora Theatre as will nationally renowned comedian Tom Simmons. Be a part of this unforgettable night of comedy hosted by the incomparable Emanuel Hudson and part of a LIVE television taping while you enjoy two award-wining sets of comedy.


See Tom Simmons tape his hour long special!

Tom was born the only boy and middle child to a close-knit family that moved a lot. At a young age Tom immersed himself in reading, from the imaginative world of comic books to the authentic world of non-fiction novels; anything was fair game. Tom questioned everything and everyone, respectfully… but with absolutely no respect at all.

Now a 21 year veteran of stand-up comedy, Tom has remained a power player in an industry where comics fail, and often. For over two decades he has travelled on national tours, headlined comedy-clubs, won comedy festival awards and made numerous TV appearances on major networks including: Comedy Central, Showtime, BET, Bounce TV, Comedy.TV, Laughs on FOX, and COMICS Unleashed.

A self-described contrarian, his style of comedy will remind you of that funny friend who has you laughing so hard your stomach hurts. Pulling from everyday situations as a father and husband, Tom finds comedy wherever he takes a good look. He likes to make stupid people and smart people laugh because he sees himself as both.

Whether it be a corporate retreat, a cruise ship deck or a morning show, this (predominately) liberal comedian has a knack for making people of all walks laugh pretty hard in literally any situation. Tom aims to be that comedian that speaks the truth and says what people can’t, in a funny way of course.

Tom Simmons is blazing his own path (he never moved to NY or LA, contrary to nearly everyone’s advice) and creating a career to die for. If you can’t see him in person (which you will regret), Tom’s comedy albums are available on Amazon and iTunes, he has a Pandora channel, and appears on the popular segment “Mad as Hell,” on the FOX syndicated show, LAUGHS. Tom also writes and shoots the reoccurring web series called “So Then There’s This,” where he delivers his unique take on current events, pop culture, and more.
