With his wild-eyed smile and patented awkward delivery, Clark´s act takes on the realities of life and deals with them in a most original and unusual way.

This has allowed him to perform his act in corporate environments, colleges, and clubs across the country. Clark has even become an international sensation, having performed at both The Capetown Comedy Festival in South Africa and as part of New Faces at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Clark´s credits include: Comedy Central´s Premium Blend, The Late Late Show on CBS, NBC´s Last Comic Standing, and The Bob and Tom Radio Show. For more information check out: www.tomclark.com.
