De-motivational speaker, Tommy Lama, brings his unmatched and unorthodox wisdom to the LA Comedy Club where he delivers this original stand-up comedy act to his “disciples” five nights a week. It is a parody of the motivational and spiritual speakers seeking to give his audience a backwards education in enlightenment. Equipped with a number of instruments, tarot cards, and his own custom-made underwear for people’s protection when not in his presence, Tommy Lama brings his new spiritually healing hilarity to the stage Thursday through Monday inside the Stratosphere Resort and Casino.
Tommy Savitt, the comedian behind the Tommy Lama, is a multi-award winning comedian with 15 years of performing experience. Originally a lawyer, Tommy Savitt gave up his career in Real Estate Law to pursue stand-up comedy and acting in productions of Shakespeare in New York City. He has performed on the radio for the Bob & Tom Show as well as Blue Collar Radio. He has also been around the world performing for troops. Tommy Savitt’s alter-ego, The Tommy Lama, has proven a huge hit.
The Tommy Lama has traveled across the globe to comedy clubs and comedy festivals and has earned coveted awards including winner of the Seattle Comedy Competition and Best Comedian at the Boston Comedy Festival, at the Ventura Comedy Festival, and at the LA Comedy Awards. Along with the awards, the unique style of The Tommy Lama has been praised by many club owners, festival producers, and other comedians for the act’s fullness and Tommy’s ability to captivate the crowd with his horribly funny advice.
The Tommy Lama can be seen at the LA Comedy Club inside of the Stratosphere Resort and Casino Friday through Tuesday at 10PM starting December 5th. General admission tickets are $39, with VIP tickets at $59 and VIP with open-bar at $79.
