Tommy Ryman grew up with a new-age, folk- singing 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,” where judges raved about Tommy, saying, “…they had never seen anything like him, 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, colleges, and corporate events around the nation, and he is regularly featured on SiriusXM, and iheartradio.
Ryman recently won the title of Best in the Midwest at the prestigious Gilda’s Laugh Fest and voted best comedian in the Twin Cities by City Pages. He was invited to perform at the Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater. Ryman’s newest album, “Having the Time of My Life,” debuted at #2 on the iTunes comedy charts, and he also has a brand-new comedy special on Dry Bar Comedy.
Award-winning musician, singer and songwriter, Andrea Lyn, cuts to the chase with thoughtful lyrics and melodies. Her song stories stem from real life and evoke even the most hidden connections. With influences from Sarah McLaughlin, Smashing Pumpkins, Merle Haggard, Gillian Welch, Emmylou Harris and John Prine, to Marc Cohn, Bonnie Raitt, Lyn captures a genre) like no other, with roots, reality and relatability. Hailing from the New Ulm-Mankato area, she is joined by the equally talented group, The Wildflowers.
Tickets will be available approximately 6 weeks before the event and can be purchased at the New Ulm Chamber office, New Ulm Hy-Vee, State Street Theater box office, door #7 and Eventbrite.
