Thom Tran: Relief and Therapy in Comedy

description

A first-generation American immigrant turned American soldier, combat veteran, and professional stand-up comedian, Thom Tran turned a literal lifetime of war and tragedy into a successful career as a stand-up comic after a combat injury ended his career as a soldier.

The relief and therapy that Thom found in comedy is what he brings to those still in the combat zone. Even as a civilian, he continues to help our servicemen and women, performing at benefits to raise money for the Bob Hope USO at LAX which provides comforts for our troops deploying overseas, and twice was named the USO's funniest service member.
