Words of Mass Destruction
On 24 September 2004, Tom produced and starred in his own one-man political show, Words of Mass Destruction, at Goucher and released a CD of the same title two weeks later! On 24 August 2006, Words of Mass Destruction was re-released on MT6 Records, an independent label based in Baltimore. The CD, which also features clips of 'The Myers Experience,' is available for purchase on his website as well as at CD Baby, Tower Records Online and at MT6 Records Online. Tom Myers started performing stand-up comedy in 2001 at Goucher College. Since then, he performed at various events on campus before he graduated in 2005 with a degree in History. His first comedy club appearance was in January of 2004 at Tootsie's Comedy Club, located at the 152 Bar and Grill in his hometown of Fallston, Maryland. Additionally, he also performed at the Baltimore Comedy Factory, where he competed in his first Funniest Person in Baltimore competition. In February 2006, Tom made his debut at the Improv Comedy Club in Washington, DC when he performed at the DC Comedy Showcase contest. Although he didn't place, Tom proved to those in doubt that he could win over the audience in a professional comedy club setting. In just a few years, Tom has entertained (and even puzzled) audiences using his unique sense of humor as well as his political and social insights in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, sharing the stage with Mickey Cucchiella, Michael Blackson, Kevin Lee, and the legendary Fat Doctor. In addition to being a stand-up comic, Tom had his own show on Goucher Student Radio while he was in college. For two hours a week during the semesters, he hosted, wrote and produced 'The Myers Experience,' where he commented on news stories using his acerbic sense of humor. Tom is also an actor. He played the role of the Hatter, a bitter aging comedian, in Alice in Americaland at the 2001 Harford County Drama Festival during his senior year at Fallston High School. In 2004, he performed in two original stage productions, The Newport Flower Convention and DIN, at Goucher. That same year, he appeared in Goucher's production of the Jean-Paul Sartre play No Exit. This role kept Tom on stage without a break for 96 minutes and is one of Tom's strongest dramatic roles. Tom has filmed and is currently editing and produced a DVD to be released by the end of 2006. Tom currently resides in Fallston, Maryland, and performs mainly in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. He looks forward to seeing you at one (or all) of his shows.
