Tommy Joe Breaux has been making people laugh with his Cajun
stories almost all his life. "I learned a lot of anecdotes from my GranPa
Gilbear when I was little," says Tommy Joe. "He would talk about the
crazy people who lived in his hometown, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Now, telling
stories is a way of keeping my granpa alive."
Tommy Joe got his big break when a radio station broadcast
live from the auto parts store where he worked. He started entertaining the disc
jockeys and they put him on the air. Thus began a career of live and recorded
performances that has produced five audiotapes and one videotape, in addition to
the Cajun Humor from the Heart book and accompanying audiotape, his first
project with Pelican.Tommy Joe also appeared on TNN's "Nashville
Now" and his humor has been in Country America magazine four times.
The stories in Cajun Humor from the Heart are family
oriented and "garonteed" to tickle the ribs of anyone, whether or not
they are familiar with the Cajun people.
Currently a resident of Biloxi, Mississippi, Tommy Joe gives live
performances in the area and records his stories for WVMI-AM in Biloxi,
Mississippi. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Elks. He is also
Chairman of Fundraising for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Multiple Sclerosis
Society, having been diagnosed with the disease in 1986. A portion of the
proceeds from Cajun Humor from the Heart will go to that organization for
direct patient care.
