Socially Relevant, Easily Relatable and Very Funny Comedian Tom Simmons To Perform in Asheville Friday, May 9th at 8:00 & 10:00pm

Comedian Tom Simmons (Comedy Central, Showtime, BET, Bounce TV, Comedy.TV) performs at The Millroom with special guest Caleb Synan and Local host comedian Cary Goff

On Friday, May 9th, a favorite on the national comedy circuit, Tom Simmons is set to perform two shows at 8:00pm & 10:00pm in downtown Asheville at Asheville Brewing Company's The Millroom as part of Funny Business' monthly comedy series.

Tom Simmons was born in NY and raised in Atlanta, GA. He is married to the love of his life, Serena, for more than a decade. Together, they have a son named Owen. Before Owen's birth in 2004, Tom and Serena toured the continent in their RV, devoted to perfecting Tom's stage act and putting their relationship to the test. The Simmons now live in Greensboro, NC, the "epicenter of comedy," as Tom describes it with a huge grin. In 2009, Tom won the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He is a two time finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and has performed at the Montreal Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival. He's appeared on Comedy Central's Live at Goth, Showtime, BET's Comic View, Bounce TV and Comedy.TV.

Opening for Tom is Caleb Synan from Atlanta, GA. Caleb Synan's act is a rare blend of southern charm and razor sharp wit. As a homeschooled preacher's kid who lives in Atlanta, his unique and hilarious perspective of the south, his parents, and the world at large is both smart and relatable; giving him the chance to work with the likes of Donnell Rawlings, Brian Posehn, Joe Rogen, and Todd Glass. Local comedian Cary Goff will host both shows.

Buying tickets in advanced is highly-recommended and can be done so by visiting Free parking is available across the street from The Millroom at 66 Asheland Avenue after 6pm. Food and beer will be available.

About Funny Business at The Millroom: Funny Business at the Millroom brings live, nationally-recognized comedians for 2 shows on a Friday night each month (mostly the 1st Fridays of each month). There will be 3 comedians each show: a local emcee, a feature act and a national headliner. Shows will run around 1 hour and 45 minutes. The headliners will generally all have Comedy Central or equivalent credits. Funny Business Agency (, one of the largest agencies in the country booking comedy clubs, is partnering with The Millroom (connected to Asheville Brewing) in downtown Asheville, NC at 66 Asheland Ave. Funny Business also booked The Funny Business Comedy Club at the S&W in Asheville several years ago. Our shows are designed to provide a consistent home in Asheville for high-quality professional standup comedy. The Millroom offers full bar service, food and a selection of Asheville Brewing's locally-made craft beers. The adjacent Asheville Brewing offers the best pizza and beer in WNC before and after the comedy shows.
