“Last year my album came out and I released a special,” says comedian Tommy Ryman. “These days I’m kind of all over the place, just trying to cram in some new stuff. There’s a little bit of politics, family stuff, and things I’ve talked about in the past.” The special has gained some traction thanks to one of his jokes going viral. “It was about my mom, who is a bit of a hippie, activating rivers,” he says. So many people are familiar with the story of his mom using crystals to “activate” rivers that he can refer to it in his set, even if he doesn’t do the bit. “The week that I’m at Acme, I’m going to try and have bunch of new stuff since that material is out there, but the activating rivers one I can call back to.”
