MASTER HEALER TOMMY LAMA was born into harsh circumstances that would have doomed a lesser man. Tommy grew up in Brooklyn, a traditional community where people help people beat up other people. A place rich in cultures - mostly salmonella.
Tommy worked as a pest control technician while putting himself through law school until, a fateful evening he accidentally inhaled pesticide while trapped in a collapsing basement of a mini-mart. An event which changed his perspective and brain chemistry. As Tommy snapped into consciousness, he interpreted this event as a message from the universe to cleanse his Karma in order to make it into the next life. Fueled by his desire to make a difference, Tommy enlisted in the U.S.M.C summer program, where he was denied a purple heart despite nearly dying of exhaustion while still in boot camp.
Undeterred by his failure, he began a lifelong vision quest and found himself by traveling to the four corners of Google Earth. It was on this journey that he began using his powers for good. He took on the name given to him by his teacher, the great Maharaji Yamaha Suzuki Toyota, the Tommy Lama. After disseminating his message in comedy clubs, he became the back -to-back winner of the Boston and Seattle comedy competitions, appeared on the Bob and Tom Show, National Lampoon's Man Up Stand Up, and in commercials for Adidas, Monster.com and Lowe's.
Jason first hit the comedy stage at the urges of his friends in 1994 in Ottawa, Ontario. Within just a couple of months he had already earned an honorable mention in the Ottawa portion of the Search for Canada’s funniest comedian. Jason later went pro in 1997 performing at various venues across Canada. In 1999 Jason had won the Ottawa portion of the Just for Laughs “Craven A’s One Step Closer to Hollywood” competition, awarding him a spot at the prestigious annual Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. The following year Jason won the preliminary Ottawa portion of the Search for Canada’s Funniest Comedian competition. He then proceeded to grab third place in the finals in Toronto and in doing so caught the attention of JFL, earning him yet another performance at the prestigious Festival. In addition to touring and performing his own eye on pop culture, Jason also dabbles in theatre and films. His latest film, “Hacks”, written and directed by Greg Lawrence creator of Kevin Spencer.
