Tom Clark is not your conventional comedian—visit tomclark.com and you’re welcomed by a simplistic webpage lined with hilarious java-scripted images of Clark in various costumes. This very random and obscure presentation is the perfect first impression for this spastic, off-kilter comedian. With appearances in shows like The Late, Late Show, Premium Blend and Last Comic Standing, Clark has come a long way from memorizing Johnny Carson monologues to present to his fourth-grade class. Not only are Clark’s jokes hilarious, his physical humor adds to the complexity of his performances guaranteeing laughter throughout the run of the show. With jokes like “Drugs are for Nerds” and “Cholos,” Clark talks about his encounters with others and the hilarity he finds in his everyday life. With clever punch lines and interesting plots, there is no telling what Clark will bring to his audience’s attention. One of his most memorable jokes is about why we should always communicate with one another, in which case he says it took him six months into a relationship to find out that his girlfriend only spoke Spanish. With a series of shows throughout the U.S., Clark seems to only get bigger and better with the passing of time—making him must see performer. (Victoria Banegas)
