Stand-Up Global

Tommy has spent nearly his entire life in and around comedy. His family opened The Comedy Works Comedy Club in Albany NY when he was just 3 years old and he spent countless nights and weekends during his youth surrounded by some of the most talented and unique personalities in the business. As a teenager he was managing the front end of the club and in his twenties took on ownership and expanded to multiple venues in multiple states. In 2016, Tommy founded Stand-Up Global with the objective of improving artists careers by managing and growing all revenue streams through a single in-house team (promoter, agent, publicist, media manager, content production, image/branding, merchandise, ticketing and more).

This structure simplifies the life of the artist and ensures that the artist's representation all understand, and work together toward, the artist's goals - timely and efficiently.

Tommy is based out of New York, is a happily married father of two and is a Penn State football fanatic.
