The entertainment industry is filled with comics of various calibers distinguishing themselves by their jokes, mannerisms, and wit. They tend to start small; doing stand-up sessions at small locations before getting a chance to move up to a bigger stage. Those that are determined take whatever opportunity they get and use it to let the world know just what they’re capable of. Tom Segura got his chances and didn’t misuse them one bit.
Segura is an American comic and podcaster known very well for his amazing talent, and occasionally for his controversies. He’s also a writer and an actor, with five stand-up specials to his name.
