After years of doing stand-up comedy, Tom Simmons believes he still has a lot to learn.
“I’m going to focus more on the performing, which I haven’t really,” he says of his heavy focus on writing jokes. “I feel I’ve been getting by with one hand tied behind my back.”
Simmons has also been studying how, historically, current events can sometimes have a longer lifecycle in comedy.
Simmons performs Thursday-Sunday. $8-$14. Go Bananas Comedy Club, 8410 Market Place Lane, Montgomery, gobananascomedy.com.
