  • Tom Dreesen Speaker Event
    When David Letterman was ill in 2003, he asked comedian Tom Dreesen to be a guest host on his show. “I cannot say enough good things about the guy and his comedy,” says Letterman. “He is one of my oldest friends and a born storyteller. And he’s got such a good heart.”

    Tom Dreesen’s name has appeared on marquees up and down the Las Vegas Strip, Lake Tahoe, Reno and Atlantic City with artists like Frank Sinatra, Smokey Robinson, Liza Minnelli, Natalie Cole and Sammy Davis, Jr. Obviously, he’s in good company.
  • Tom Dreesen Endorsement
    Tom Dreesen has starred in numerous sitcoms, hosted radio shows and produced comedy records, but he still finds time to give back. Each year, Mr. Dreesen organizes “Day for Darlene,” a series of celebrity events to raise money to help fight Multiple Sclerosis. As such, a Tom Dreesen endorsement carries the weight of a celebrity who has not only found success for himself, but takes time to help others find success as well.
