Tom Rhodes – The International
Stand Up Comedian Tom Rhodes has been there, done that, and sold the T-shirt. He was the very first Spokesperson for Comedy Central when it debuted back in the 1990s and has been doing his podcast “Tom Rhodes Radio” way before the mainstream got into that broadcasting medium (check out his episode with Kim Dotcom from a year ago, classic!).
I titled this show “The International” because Tom embodies this essence more than any other American comic. He actually has NO physical address but keeps his valuables in storage as he travels from city to city performing and exploring. He writes a regular travel blog for the Huffington Post and has filmed a boatload of “Tom Rhodes Comedy Travels” videos at Angkor Wat, Macchu Picchu, and the grave of famous motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel.
On top that Tom spent 5 years living in Holland where, as an American, he hosted his own late night talk show. He regularly tours the world and has performed in places like Indonesia, Dubai, and Beijing. Plus he’s eaten magic mushrooms with Doug Stanhope. Do you really need to hear more?
