Winner of the 2009 San Francisco Comedy Competition, Tom Simmons' material ranges from his own young son to grocery shopping to politics. “I’m a likable misanthrope, a contrarian who believes we are doing it all wrong. And it’s just fun pointing that out through jokes,” he says in his bio. He's kind of a lovable schlub with a sneak attack wit — for the not-too-easily-offended, check out his “Yo Bama” jokes on his website, tomsimmonscomedy.com. Simmons performs at the Altamont Theatre on Saturday, May 26 at 9 p.m. $10. http://myaltamont.com.
