Tommy "Reverend Nuge" Nugent's college experience was not like yours...unless you went to the same Bible College as Jim and Tammy Fay Bakker, prayed (in English and in "Tongues") and read the Bible three hours a day; did not have sex, drink alcohol, or listen to "secular" music...but did once help perform an exorcism on a fellow student.

At age 21 Tommy moved into inner-city Detroit and, with two other pastors, founded an Assemblies of God church. As youth pastor, Tommy built his youth group from three to over a hundred in less than six months and realized where he was supposed to be and what he was supposed to do for the rest of his life.

[Insert tragic, melodramatic plot-twist here!]

At age 23 Tommy was an atheist professional gambler living in Las Vegas. And that's just the beginning of the story...
Here is the promo video for Tommy's hit comedic monologue 'Preacherman':

Tommy would love to come to your campus and share:
  • Preacherman - his award-winning comedy monologue describing his unlikely journey from faith, to faithlessness, to discovering his life's 'meaning.'

    -"Nugent makes it look easy and fun." - Cincinnati CityBeat Magazine
    -"A world class character." - Orlando Weekly
    -"Nugent knows how to command an audience." - The Beat, Arts in London
  • An Atheist's Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment - From pentecostal preacher to atheist zen practitioner
  • He also loves to do debates, round table discussions, and Q&A sessions
Tommy asks a $750 honorarium (less than half his normal speaking fee), but will find a way to work within any student group's budget.
