Comedian Nephew Tommy brings his hilarious ‘I Got People Inside My Head’ Tour to The Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on November 21, 2015 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $43, plus any additional service fees.
Thomas “Nephew Tommy” Miles has built a career that encompasses radio, television, film and more. His role as co-host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show puts him in front of a live radio audience of more than 8 million listeners daily. Nephew Tommy provides a key role in the morning show, lighting it up with his own cast of colorful characters and zany humor. Miles also has a loyal following as a stand-up comedian and has earned a reputation for wowing crowds.
For three years, he served as the exclusive opening act on the Luther Vandross tour. Thomas is the exclusive Main Stage host for the Essence Festival in New Orleans, typically held every July 4th weekend, which draws more than 250,000 fans and features acts such as Beyoncé, Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Usher and Kanye West. In October 2010, Miles recorded his one-hour special at the famed Motor City Casino in Detroit. He continues to keep the crowds laughing as he tours nationally to sold-out crowds across the country.
He’s a talented thespian, a Theater Major of Texas A&M University, who has worked in more than a dozen stage plays and studied with the Royal Shakespeare Company of London. A number of independent films are on his resume, including 2011’s “N-Secure” and “The Heart Specialist” with Zoe Saldana; “Think Like A Man” in 2012 from the best-selling book by Steve Harvey; and in September 2013, he made a cameo appearance in Fox Searchlight’s “Baggage Claim.”
In 2011, Miles traveled to more than a dozen military bases in the Middle East with the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff USO Holiday Tour. In December 2013, he again toured with the USO where he shared his humor, insight and wisdom with thousands of military men and women. This interaction with soldiers, both stateside and around the world, inspired Thomas to establish “Miles of Giving” a non-profit foundation created for the purpose of assisting wounded veterans.
