About the author (2011)

Tommy Moore, "The Professor of FunTM," is a comedian of many hats. He’s done over 3,500 Shows, Speeches, and Seminars at Comedy Clubs, Casinos, Cruise Ships, Colleges, Corporations, Churches, Synagogues, Resort Hotels, and on Radio and TV.

Look what the media has said:

“Tommy Moore is Pennsylvania’s Premiere Comedy Performer.” – Larry Wilde, Bantam Press

“The man knows his craft, and it shows!” – Gail Shister, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“A Million Dollar Comic, with an act suitable for the whole family, a flair for the off-beat, and a habit of involving the audience.” – Jack Lloyd, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“A loveable comic.” – Jim Knight, Philadelphia Daily News

“Tommy has a suitcase full of material.” – Stu Bykofsky, Philadelphia Daily News

“Tommy Moore puts the FUN back in FUNNY.” – Beth D’Adonno, The Times

“Moore’s humor is upbeat and optimistic.” – Linda Riley, Delaware County Times

“A performer who knows no bounds in his outlook.” – Fran Carpentier, Parade Magazine

As a comedian, producer, columnist, TV and Radio co-host, teacher and publicist, Tommy has worked with, around, and for hundreds of comedians. Here he shares the life-changing lessons he learned from each of them.

He’s brought some of these lessons to seminars at corporations like AT&T, The SUN Company, DuPont, American Express, and SONY, to list a few, and taught them at Philadelphia’s Temple University. While Tommy’s goal as a performer is to use humor to “entertain, inform, uplift, and heal,” much the same can be said about the goal of this book.
