Musical comedian Tom McGovern (The Office: A Musical Parody) has played in cover bands and piano bars in NYC since 2016. When the shutdown put an end to live shows, Tom turned to writing/selling “Jingles” – personalized little songs meant to boost people’s moods during quarantine. A little less than a year later, Jingle-writing led him to a feature on “American Idol.” Life is weird.
Join Tom (and a band full of musicians he says are more talented than he is) for an evening of catchy hooks and utter nonsense. If you’ve ever faked a phone call to avoid someone in public; if you’ve ever wondered why we never actually see baby pigeons; if you question why people make their dogs wear costumes on Halloween, you’re gonna have a good time. If none of that appeals to you, you’re still gonna have a good time.
Reasons to attend:
-You’ll make up some songs on the spot with Tom and the band.
-Tom’s Mom will be there, and his Mom is awesome.
-If you don’t laugh at all, Tom will write you an apology letter. That’s a promise.
