Tom Crowl is a high-energy comedian and ventriloquist who brings over 30 years of professional entertainment experience into each new performance. A rare talent, Tom is often recognized from his appearance on NBC’s Last Comic Standing as well as his performances at corporate events, associations, theaters cruises, casinos and resorts around the world.
Prior to launching his solo act, which frequently accompanies imaginary performance partners and a hilarity of unexpected comebacks, Tom spent 14 years performing as a duo with his wife, Dierdre. Their immediate spark and natural rapport made the pair a sought-after act around the world at fairs and festivals, promotional and corporate events, and schools and colleges.
Tom has been the featured opener for recognized celebrities and high-profile acts including The Drifters, Chubby Checkers, Rodney Atkins, The Marvellettes and The Diamonds. He’s been the preferred performer for events hosted by Coca-Cola, Armstrong, Oxy Permian, the National Association of Postal Supervisors and the Strathmore Foundation. He has also received accolades for his shows at resorts from Cancun to West Virginia and New York.
Tom Crowl is a published author, a podcaster, the executive director of the International Ventriloquist Society and is the creator of the first virtual ventriloquism course titled: Learn-Ventriloquism. His act has been captured on DVD in Tom Crowl Alone Again Un-Naturally. Early influences include Senor Wences of Ed Sullivan fame and the comedic performances of Steve Martin and Robin Williams.
