I’m going back on the road with The GIs of Comedy for a quick run of shows for our 2016 Summer Tour for Air Force Entertainment! I’ll be with East Coast GIs Jody Fuller (US Army) & new GI Walter Campbell (USAF) at Robins AFB, GA & Hurlburt Field, FL. And then I’ll be back on the West Coast with GIs Jose Sarduy (USAF) & PJ Walsh (USN) at Vandenberg AFB, CA & Edwards AFB, CA! Get details on my tour page!
I’m honored to be performing at a charity event for the Special Operations Wounded Warrior Charity, a group that I am more than qualified to be associated with. 🙂 I met these fine folks in Las Vegas during the Special Operations Charity Network event, and I’ll be performing at one of their events in Myrtle Beach, SC next on 22 April 2016. You can donate to the charity or attend the event here:
I hope I never stop being excited to work with these amazing comics that I get to share the stage with with. Tim Allen is one of those bigger than life comedians that I never thought I’d ever get to meet, much less work with. But here it is. I’ll be on the Tim Allen: Booked show at the Hollywood Laugh Factory on Thursday 28 Jan. 2016! Get tickets HERE!
Just announced! I’m very honored to be hosting and performing at the American Warriors Legends Night on 21 Jan 2016 for the Special Operations Charity Network during the SHOT Show in Las Vegas!
Get tickets to see me perform and meet some of the LEGENDS of the U.S. Special Operations Community!

2016 is already starting off with a lot on my plate, personally and professionally. I’ll be adding tour dates for both stand up comedy shows and my band Rattl and I also have a bunch of other projects in the works, so stand by for the news and have a good New Year!
Thom Tran came to Los Angeles in 2008 as an internationally touring standup comic, musician, and writer after spending a decade in broadcast radio in Western New York.
Thom enlisted in the United States Army at 18 years old before he even finished high school. After joining the Army, Thom spent his entire career as a Communications Sergeant as well as a Civil Affairs Sergeant within the United States Army’s Special Operations Community. In 2003, four days after crossing the border into Iraq, Thom was wounded during a firefight when a sniper’s bullet found it’s way to the back of his skull. He bandaged himself up, continued the mission, and finished his 12 month tour in Iraq. But his wounds would eventually bring an end to his military life. After redeploying to the United States, Thom was medically retired in 2005.
Thom’s comedy career started when his career as a soldier ended. Post-combat, comedy saved his life. After touring the United States as a road comic, Thom moved to Los Angeles in 2008. Shortly after, in 2010, after performing for a benefit for the Bob Hope USO at LAX, Tran created The GIs of Comedy Tour, a Comedic Troupe of Troops. They are Standup Comics. All Veterans. Still Serving Their Country. One Joke at a Time. The group has toured all over the United States to audiences both military and civilian, bringing the healing power of laughter to those who need it the most. The group has also raised nearly $10,000 for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a charity that raises college scholarship funds for the children of fallen US Special Operations personnel.
When Thom isn’t on the road he makes his home in Hollywood, CA performing at the Improv, The World Famous Laugh Factory, and clubs all over Los Angeles. Thom also works as a writer, producer, actor, and military consultant to Hollywood films & television shows having appeared on “CSI: NY”, “Deadliest Warrior”, “Coming Home”, and he recently joined the cast of the awarding-winning web series “Caribe Road”. He can also be heard as a traffic reporter in Los Angeles on KNX 1070 AM.
Recently, Thom’s love of rock and roll finds him back on stage playing lead guitar for a heavy metal band he co-founded called RATTL playing bars and nightclubs in Southern California!
