Tori Pool hails from the blood soaked streets of Laredo, Texas. A former high school dropout turned teacher, Pool contends high school is trash so she quit all over again. She focuses her spare time writing comedy, poetry, and screenplays. Admittedly, she’s just a just a woman that says “like”, like way too much for her age but like doesn’t realize she does it so like, yeah. A graham cracker from way back, Pool’s comedy focuses on the plight of educators, errant thoughts on marriage, child rearing, and whatever lies in between.
Rejected from prestigious institutions such as Amazon Studios, Austin Film Festival, and San Antonio Film Festival! Tori recently told a story for TPR's Worth Repeating, "Alien" recorded at Brick Bluestar. Listen here.
Pool was a crowd warmer for the historic Aztec Theater and has opened for names such as Mo Amer, Tom
Green, Hari Kondabolu, and Thea Vidale. Technically an international comic, Tori went up in London but doesn't like to claim that credit since her entire set accidentally mimicked an English accent. She was recently nominated Best Stand Up Comic in San Antonio 2019-20.
Happily a part of The Blind Tiger Comedy Club Co-Op in San Antonio, Texas. Come to a Friday show at 10pm and Midnight! I mean, I might not even be there.
