Patrick Susmilch & Tommy Ryman
Patrick Susmilch: Pat Susmilch started his stand-up odyssey over six years ago, and has since transformed into a beautiful and wounded comedic butterfly. His comedy comes from a very real place. His brain. With a cheerfully sardonic viewpoint, he's not afraid to tackle the big topics: Jurassic Park, kittens, hair loss, and wind chimes. With a style that aims to punch up and straddle the line between irreverence and poignancy, Pat has become a favorite of smart crowds in the Twin Cities and beyond.
Tommy Ryman: Tommy Ryman grew up with a new-age, folksinging mother and a traditional, Lutheran insurance-agent father. This XY equation evidently equals: acclaimed comedian. Ryman has earned the title of Semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Roseanne Barr, a professed fan, raves she has “never seen anything like [Tommy] before in [her] whole life, [he is] one-of-a-kind, fantastic!” Ryman’s act can be described as absurdist and clever, masked behind a very likable and innocent demeanor, often thought of as disturbingly adorable. He is a favorite among audiences at top clubs and colleges around the nation, and he is regularly featured on Rooftop Comedy, SiriusXM, and iheartradio. Early in his career, Ryman was sought out by some of the nation’s top comedians opening for the likes of Louie Anderson, Maria Bamford, and Nick Swardson. He was invited to perform at the prestigious Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater, and was featured as one of the “Twin Cities’ Funniest People” by Metro Magazine. Ryman is signed to StandUp! Records and assures audiences that his comedy album Bath Time with Tommy Ryman has a tasteful album cover.
