At 18 years old Tommy Johnagin made his mind up to quit school and devote his life to comedy. We’re at about the ten year mark and he’s managed to keep it up. More than keeping it up– Johnagin is a headliner now with two appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, appearances on the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, and a half-hour special on Comedy Central. Not many comedians his age can say they’ve covered that much ground. Each one of those television appearances opened millions of new eyes to his act. Beyond all that, 2009 saw the release of his debut CD, Stand Up Comedy, on the Rooftop Comedy label.
Johnagin is on the road now, a headlining club act. This will be his weekend at Laughs– he’ll be performing four sets at the Kirkland comedy club with Adam Norwest, another young road comic with a distinct voice who keeps his calendar full of appearances.
The video below is extra special because Tommy Johnagin’s latest Letterman appearance gave the man himself, David Letterman, an excuse to mention Laughs Comedy Club on national TV.
