Award-winning humorist brings Comedy Concert to Fremont

Submitted By Barbara Franks

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 Fremont on Sunday, September 30.

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.
