Frank Sinatra’s Opening Act Remembers

Opening the show for Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas and across America for the final thirteen years of Frank’s career was a great comedian named Tom Dreesen.  But Tom was much more than just an opening act.  He was a close friend and confidant of Frank’s.  And for the last few years, Tom has been sharing the stories of that relationship in a great show of comedy and reminiscences.  Tom’s show covers his own background, rising up from performing in small clubs, as a member of America’s first black and white comedy team, to eventually entertaining Frank Sinatra’s loving audiences in the largest arenas in the world. 

Tom is currently very busy working around the country, performing on stage, and competing in golf tournaments as one of the top celebrity golfers in America.  He’s also a frequent guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, and often serves as the emcee at the annual Frank Sinatra Golf Tournament in Palm Springs.  To learn more about Tom, visit  And read a personal reminiscence from Tom about Frank Sinatra’s last song in public, at the Frank Sinatra Impersonator site,
