From David Letterman to Park Forest: The Stand-Up Comedy of Tom Dreesen and His Memories of Frank Sinatra

Tom Dreesen

Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- In this unforgettable performance, comedian Tom Dreesen will take you from his childhood of shining shoes in bars in his hometown of Harvey, Illinois, hearing Sinatra on the jukebox to one day touring the nation as his opening act, flying in his private jet all over the country and staying up with Frank till dawn, night after night. He takes you to Frank’s last performance and the last song he ever sang, and then to his last days on earth. Dreesen was a pall bearer, as well as speaker, at his friend’s funeral.

Dreesen’s keen insight to arguably the greatest career show business has ever known, and the lessons he learned from the legendary star, promises to move the audience! Tom Dreesen has made over 500 appearances on national TV including the Tonight Show plus guest hosting
David Letterman.

Larry Wilde, author of the book, The Great Comedians said, “Excellent material, superb delivery, impeccable timing. Tom Dreesen is the quintessential comedian”.
