Tom Fonss


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?

Tom is a recent member of the acclaimed Groundlings Sunday Company and a founding member of the sketch comedy group, Big Boss Comedy. He also performs improv with Serious V-Necks, Dragon Dragon Dinosaur, and Hospital Flight. Tom's TV credits include stints on Community, The Comeback, The Crazy Ones, Big Bang Theory, Growing Up Fisher, Austin & Ally, as well as a recurring role on Nickelodeon's Marvin Marvin. He also contributes regular sketch work on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. Webwise, Tom has been in numerous videos featured on Funny or Die and College Humor and recently hosted both Screen Addict and The Best Movie Lists for YouTube's Cinefix channel. He is the co-creator of the Petercannonball Productions and Some Clean Shorts comedy web series. His L.A. theatre credits include plays for the Pacific Resident Theatre, the Odyssey Theater, the L.A. Theatre Ensemble, the MET Theatre, and a recent starring role (playing 25 different characters) in Alan Zweibel's Bunny Bunny at Burbank’s famed Falcon Theatre.
