Typical Gig: 10 - 60 minutes
Customized comedy, razor-sharp lightning-fast improvisation and total audience participation all meld together to entertain and energize your group. Tom Crowl packs more laughs per minute than a stand-up comedian! Guests will be rolling in the aisles and laughing so hard they’ll wipe tears from their eyes.
Ordinary objects spring to life with more personality than you’d ever anticipate! It’s just this type of unexpected twist that makes Tom’s act so captivating and intriguing – uniting audiences, providing a welcome escape and building incredible connections among collegues.
You might find a tennis ball deliberating on the finer points of public speaking or a duck interacting with attendees while weaving tales of his marvelous adventures with your own co-workers. From the audience emerge two hysterically masked human puppets – and what comes next will leave your audience bent over in hilarity.

Tom was fabulous. He was so entertaining, my employees are still stopping by my office today, the Monday after our Saturday event and telling me how great the entertainer "Tom Crowl" was. And if I have booked him yet for next years event. We are a mid size manufacturer in Greencastle, PA and sometimes my crowd is hard to please, but they were blown away with Tom's performance. Thanks again Tom. It is often a gamble on the entertainment but we hit a home run with you for sure.

This man exceeded all expectations. He is incredible to work with and does a wonderful job personalizing his routine to fit the need of his client. In all honesty the videos that you see of Tom do not do his performance justice. He is truly amazing at what he does!! From top management down it has been said this is one of the best Christmas parties that we've had. Don't hesitate to hire this man!! And his precious Duck!! Thank you, thank you Tom for the wonderful time!

Witty, fun & very talented. Kept the audience in stitches.
– Mike Ryan, Illinois Power
You prove it is still possible to get a night of entertainment that is clean, fun and you can bring the children to - even though the audience was all adults. I can take you anywhere and know that my clients will have a good time.
– Michael Cotton, A Meeting Service, Inc.
From the minute you book Tom, he makes it easy. He sends marvelous promotional materials that are welcomed by the local media. He arrives promptly and is very self-sufficient in terms of set-up and working with the sound and light technicians. Once the lights go up, he's got the audience in stitches. He is flexible and adjusts his material to be age appropriate for the audience. High energy would be an understatement.
After the curtain comes down, he doesn't disappear. He stays to greet the audience. This is a rarity and just one of the many attributes that make working with Tom Crowl a pleasure.
This guy is funny. This guy is fair. And this guy is fabulous. I can't say enough about Tom and his consistent ability to fill our house and keep the crowds wanting more. You'll be happy to have him grace your stage.
