The Tommy Lama is Back! With Cris Machado

with Cris Machado

MASTER HEALER TOMMY LAMA was born into harsh circumstances that would have doomed a lesser man. Tommy grew up in Brooklyn, a traditional community where people help people beat up other people. A place rich in cultures - mostly salmonella.

Tommy worked as a pest control technician while putting himself through law school until, a fateful evening he accidentally inhaled pesticide while trapped in a collapsing basement of a mini-mart. An event which changed his perspective and brain chemistry. As Tommy snapped into consciousness, he interpreted this event as a message from the universe to cleanse his Karma in order to make it into the next life. Fueled by his desire to make a difference, Tommy enlisted in the U.S.M.C summer program, where he was denied a purple heart despite nearly dying of exhaustion while still in boot camp.

Undeterred by his failure, he began a lifelong vision quest and found himself by traveling to the four corners of Google Earth. It was on this journey that he began using his powers for good. He took on the name given to him by his teacher, the great Maharaji Yamaha Suzuki Toyota, the Tommy Lama. After disseminating his message in comedy clubs, he became the back-to-back winner of the Boston and Seattle comedy competitions, appeared on the Bob and Tom Show, National Lampoon's Man Up Stand Up, and in commercials for Adidas, and Lowe's.

A session with Tommy will change your life. Hate your job? I can show you how to get fired. Need to quit smoking? I will help you find an addiction better suited to your horoscope. Inadequate lover? I will help provide your wife with what she requires.

I have a long list of celebrity clients whose identities I cannot disclose (including Gary Busey, Nick Nolte, and Lindsay Lohan.)

Now is your turn to join their ranks.

Cris Machado

"Is everything a joke to you?" The same question that has destroyed virtually all of his relationships, has also allowed Cris to connect with audiences across the country. His brutally honest take on the current political climate in our society...does not exist. This Massachusetts native will make you laugh at the little things. Cris is able to momentarily free audiences from the serious, and explore the insouciant mental state of a single 30 year old man with two cats. Cris leads spectators on a hilarious journey of absurd observations about the world they share and in the end they rejoice because at least they're all doing better than Cris Machado.
