Tom Wilson is one of the premiere Stand-Up comedians in the country, boasting appearances on The Tonight Show with both Jay Leno and Johnny Carson, David Letterman, Regis, as well as Good Morning America, The Today Show and CBS This Morning. Internationally he’s appeared on Tonight Live in Australia, Good Morning, Great Britain, and hundreds of local television and radio programs around the world. He’s starred in comedy specials on NBC, Global Television in Canada, and has written and performed his one man show, Cowboy Tommy to critical acclaim and full houses across North America.
Fanatically eager to get onstage, when Broadway didn’t answer the door quickly enough, he began performing Stand-Up comedy in his teens, while studying to be an actor in New York. Within a short time, he was headlining in comedy clubs up and down the east coast, and moved to Los Angeles soon after that. Accepted as a regular at the world famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip on his first audition, at 21 years old he became a member of the Comedy Store Players, improvising onstage with the likes of Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, and the large group of comedy colleagues who formed the nexus of the modern comedy boom.
He’s appeared in some 25 feature films, including his Saturn award winning performance in the now classic Back to the Future trilogy, and has recently been a part of the SpongeBob Squarepants phenomena, performing many voices in the Nickelodeon series, as well as the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. He’s been a recurring character on many television shows, including Ed, Freaks and Geeks, Do Over, Titus, Maggie, Fired Up, and been a guest star on Boston Public, Zoey 101, Rodney, Bob Patterson, The Facts of Life, and many more.
