His affinity for cross cultural comedy landed him the unusual distinction of being the only non-Dutch person to host a Dutch televsion talk show. Tom brings his act and two surprise guests to DoceLunas for a performance on April 26th. On the 25th, DoceLunas will host a contest for comedians who live in Costa Rica, one of whom will go on to perform on Saturday with the professionals. Tickets are $10 for the contest, $20 for the professionals, and $25 for a the whole weekend of comedy. You can check out Tom Rhodes' comedy here.
