Galloway Township comic wins her shot at headlining a show

Michelle Tomko didn't win nothing.

And that's not a grammar error. It's a correction, a statement that there's no truth in the title of a show that stars Tomko - a standup comic who lives in Galloway Township - Thursday and Friday nights at Pro Bar AC, in Resorts Casino Hotel.

"My show's name is, 'Michelle Tomko: I Won Nothing,'" she explain-ed, through a laugh. "I basically won a whole bunch of work putting this show together."

But the truth is that in an 11-week talent contest, called Pro Bar Finds A Star, Tomko did win first prize - a two-night stand as headliner at the popular club, the only GLBT bar in an Atlantic City casino.

So after 20 years of open-mike nights and "bringer shows" - shows in which the aspiring comics have to bring a posse of drink-buying friends along with them, or the comics don't go on - Tomko will at least and at last get to be the star of a show.
