Tommy Johnagin Overview:

Tommy Johnagin is one of the best young comics of his generation. With a deadpan delivery and quick, sharp writing, he's reminiscent of Louis C.K. -- only less dark and without all the cursing. His comedy is a mix of observational humor (though much smarter and funnier than the average "Have you ever noticed?" variety) and utter self-deprecation.
