Tom Cassidy
Tom Cassidy is a comedian who started in Philadelphia at The Laff House Comedy Club (urban clubs spell things wrong due to the deterioration of the public school system) where he became a feature act 2 weeks before the club shut down.

He has been featured at The New York, Boston, Staten Island and Hoboken Comedy Festival (placed in the order of respect each festival gets) and has performed at colleges throughout the east coast in beautiful theaters and fluorescent cafeteria's. In addition to performing literally wherever will have him Tom is also a writer who has directed several sketches and short films, including "Babe Ruth Time Traveler" and it's sequel (you can guess what it's called).

He won the Just For Laugh's 2011 Homegrown Comic Competition and NOW Magazine's 2011 Best of Toronto Award for Best Male Stand-up.
