Tom Fonss

SAG-AFTRA

Tom Fonss was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California (it was rough, I know, but he got through it). Tom's actor/writer roots go back to junior high, when he took an acting class where he spent most of his time doing Chris Farley impressions (that material killed with the 11 to 12 crowd), but soon he realized he could do much more than that. In high school, he started acting professionally in theaters around southern California, including the La Jolla Playhouse Conservatory and the North Coast Repertory Theater. Tom then attended the UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television where he studied under an array of accomplished instructors including Sir Anthony Hopkins. It was here that Tom co-created his own theater troupe "The Actor's Crew." After graduation, he spent a year teaching 5th Grade in the South Bronx through the Teach For America program and quickly came to the conclusion: stick to the acting and the writing, mmkay bud?

Now back in L.A., Tom currently writes and performs in the acclaimed Groundlings Sunday Company. He is a founding member of the sketch comedy group "Big Boss Comedy." He's a performer in "Crit Juice," a podcast and video series following actors and comedians playing Dungeons& Dragons while under the influence. He is the co-creator of "Petercannonball Productions" and the "Some Clean Shorts" sketch comedy web series. He's been in numerous videos featured on "Funny or Die" and "College Humor." He's acted in plays throughout the Los Angeles area, including Suzan-Lori Parks' "365 Days/365 Plays" at the Pacific Resident Theatre, and many others at the Odyssey Theater, the L.A. Theatre Ensemble, and the MET Theatre. He also performs improv regularly with Serious V-Necks, Dragon Dragon Dinosaur, and Hospital Flight.

Host of Cinefix's "Screen Addict" on YouTube. Recurring on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and "Marvin Marvin." Guest star on "Austin & Ally."
