Award-winning humorist brings Comedy Concert to (city or organization). Dubbed "a contemporary Mark Twain" by author Dr. Larry Dossey, award-winning "transformational humorist" and songwriter Greg Tamblyn brings his irreverent humor and sideways view of life to (city) on (day), (date), (time) at (organization), (address). Tickets are (price) at the door.

With a list of national awards to his credit, including multiple "Best Comedy Song" awards from the emPower Posi Music Awards (the Grammys of Positive Music), Just Plain Folks Music Awards, and the Music City Song Festival, Tamblyn's unique musical wit provides the perfect dose of 'conscious comic relief' from the workday blues, global anxiety, and personal challenges.

His concerts feature songs like The Top Ten Whiny Victim Love Songs, Self-Employment Made Harder by Difficult Boss, Analog Brain in a Digital World, The Shootout At The I'm OK You're OK Corral, My Life is a Beer Commercial, and A Brief History of God (G-String Theory).

Tamblyn's performances have been called "psycho-spiritual experiences" that take his audience on a musical joyride into the Profound and the Absurd, the Personal and the Universal, the Psychological and the Spiritual, the Sacred and the Silly. Jack Canfield, co-author of "Chicken Soup for the Soul," says of Greg: "I'm sure you are Chicken Soup for a lot of Souls out there in the world!"

As a professional songwriter in Nashville, Tamblyn appeared nationally on television, and had songs recorded by other artists from Canada to the Philippines. One of his own records, It's Another Joyful Elvis Presley Christmas, was named "Christmas Single of the Year" in Cashbox Magazine.

Tamblyn was rated "Best Male Vocalist" in his hometown of Kansas City by The Squire Newspapers. Stories from his life and songwriting have been featured in several recent books, including "Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backwards," by Brian Luke Seaward; "Shelter For The Spirit," by Victoria Moran; and "Art and Soul," by Pam Grout.

Greg Tamblyn"SAVING THE WORLD FROM WHINY, VICTIM LOVE SONGS!”

Singer/Songwriter/Humorist Greg Tamblyn likes to spread the good mood. According to Tamblyn, the goal of his irreverent music and musings on our often crazy culture is to help people "see the best in themselves, and laugh at the rest of themselves."

As he explains, "A wise man I know likes to say that one of the most radical things you can do here in the U.S. of Stress is to have a good day. So I'm on a mission to help people lighten up."

Tamblyn's music reflects the joy he finds in simple pleasures, and the humor in the dysfunctional ones. One example: shining his comedic spotlight on what he calls "whiny victim love songs." Tamblyn has collected hundreds of these, including titles like "I'm So Miserable Without You, It's Like You Were Here," and "If You Won't Leave Me, I'll Find Someone Who Will." Or Carole King's "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)."

"Songs like these are not really about love, but about celebrating victimhood or taking hostages," says Tamblyn. "They go far beyond sadness and even grief, to an island of longing and desperation that no one should inhabit. Except maybe Phil Spector. I want people to wake up and consign lyrics like 'Without you, I'm garbage,' to their rightful place in the world of entertainment: material for comedy!"

So he's coming to the rescue with a free comedy concert at ( place ) at ( time and date ), and with a double CD entitled Saving The World From Whiny Victim Love Songs.

Tamblyn's concerts tend to be as funny as they are musical, featuring selections from his new album, including "I'd Like To Be The Man My Dog Thinks I Am;" "The Top 10 Whiny Victim Love Songs;" "The Shootout At The I'm OK, You're OK Corral;" "Self-Employment Made Harder By Difficult Boss;" and "My Life Is A Beer Commercial."  Another tune, "Common Side Effects Include," won the 2004 Just Plain Folks Music Award for "Best Comedy/Novelty Song" out of over 140,000 songs submitted. (www.jpfolks.org). Listeners can hear Tamblyn's songs at www.gregtamblyn.com.


If Tamblyn has his way, there will still be great love songs, just not ones that encourage us to be--or take--love slaves. And people will come away from his concerts knowing how to lighten the stress of daily living with love and laughter.

"GET A HEALTHY DOSE OF COMIC RELIEF!”

Award winning singer/songwriter Greg Tamblyn brings his humor, songs, and sideways overview on life to (City). He’ll share his music and musings in a special evening event which is “more than a concert, it’s a psycho-spiritual experience.”

GREG TAMBLYN

If laughter is the best medicine and music is the universal language, singer/songwriter Greg Tamblyn has a license to heal anywhere in the world. Tamblyn uses humorous personal stories and songs to reach his audiences. With songs like “The Shootout At The I’m OK, You’re OK Corral,” and “My Life is a Beer Commercial,” his feel-good shows are heavy on laughs. He sings about subjects ranging from modern relationships and cultural absurdities to forgiveness on the field of battle.

A brochure for Duke University Medical Center’s “Integrating Mind, Body, and Spirit in Medical Practice” conference lists Tamblyn as a member of the seminar’s faculty. Where initials such as M.D. and Ph.D. follow the other presenter’s names, the listing for Tamblyn is followed by N.C.W., which stands for “No Credentials Whatsoever.” He jokes that his primary learning came from the “school of life,” and that he almost flunked out.

He was rated “Best Male Vocalist” in his hometown of Kansas City by The Squire Newspapers. As a professional songwriter in Nashville, he has appeared nationally on The Nashville Network, and had songs recorded by other artists from Canada to the Philippines. One of his own records, It’s Another Joyful Elvis Presley Christmas, was named “Christmas Single of the Year” in Cashbox Magazine.

Stories from his life and songwriting have been featured in several recent books, including Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backwards, by Brian Luke Seaward; Shelter For The Spirit, by Victoria Moran; and Art and Soul, by Pam Grout.

"No Contest! This is the cleverest musical take on modern life. Your cheeks will hurt from laughter as your heart fills with empathy.”
PJ Birosik, Yoga Journal

"I love the messages you are spreading through your music. I’m sure you are Chicken Soup for a lot of Souls out there in the world!”
Jack Canfield, co-author, Chicken Soup for the Soul
