As a writer, producer, and actor, Tom Arnold has established himself to both television and film audiences worldwide, having won such awards as the Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award. Additionally, he helped put Fox Sports Network on the map with his hosting duties on “BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD.”

Arnold cornered the market on playing the resident comic relief in films like “NINE MONTHS” with Hugh Grant, Julianne Moore, and Robin Williams, “TRUE LIES” with Arnold Schwarzenegger, “HERO” with Dustin Hoffman, and “AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY” with Mike Myers.

Arnold has successfully broken out of the comedic stereotype and is becoming a fixture at film festivals by landing more mature and dramatic roles. He received critical praise for his role in “GARDENS OF THE NIGHT,” opposite John Malkovich, “THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD” starring John Malkovich and Tom Hanks, “GOOD DICK” opposite Jason Ritter, and “THE YEAR OF GETTING TO KNOW US” opposite Sharon Stone, Jimmy Fallon and Lucy Liu. In 2005, he received critical notice for his role in Don Roos’ “HAPPY ENDINGS” for Lions Gate Films. He was also seen in “PRIDE” opposite Terrance Howard, and “ANIMAL FACTORY,” directed by Steve Buscemi. Other film credits include “SOUL PLANE,” “CRADLE TO THE GRAVE,” “EXIT WOUNDS” and “THE KID & I.”

Arnold began his career in comedy at the University of Iowa before moving to Minneapolis, where he won the Minneapolis Comedy Competition in 1988. He then moved to Los Angeles to write on the highly successful television series, “ROSEANNE,” before eventually serving as executive producer for the sitcom. He went on to star in his own HBO special entitled “TOM ARNOLD: THE NAKED TRUTH,” and then wrote, produced and starred in his own television series “THE JACKIE THOMAS SHOW,” “TOM” and “THE TOM SHOW.”

Born in Iowa, Tom has established a writing scholarship and runs an acting workshop for students at the Indian Hills Community College in Iowa. Tom is heavily involved in many charities such as The Race to Erase MS, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Best Buddies, Camp del Corazon, The Kayne Eras Center, Promises Foundation, Carousel of Hope, Arnold’s Inner City Games, The Hollenbeck Christmas Giveaway, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

 

Tom Arnold returned to his roots as a stand-up comic this year. Never scripted, Tom pokes fun at his Midwest past, marital follies and absurd Hollywood stories. Just like his past film and television comedy work, Tom is a ball of chaos and charisma on stage. He hosts the popular “Laughing With The Stars” weekly comedy show at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood featuring supporting acts ranging from rising young comics to all-time favorites. His shows are famous for their loose atmosphere with Tom breaking down the walls between his fellow comics and the audience. No one is quite sure what to expect any given night.

    For over 15 years, Brett has enjoyed creating a vast array of characters for original comedy shows in which he starred, co-wrote, directed, and produced. The shows have featured Brett on The Tonight Show, Seinfeld, E! TV, Comic Relief, HBO, and as recurring characters on MTV... just to name a few. Things kicked up another notch for Brett when he went on to co-star with heavyweight champ James Toney in his award winning short film ‘Fight Night’ ; which he also wrote and co-produced. The film was chosen for two of the world's largest festivals - Sony's Tropfest & The Just For Laughs Comedy Festival - which that year Brett was also asked to be a host. The following year Brett was given the honor of being selected as one of 22 comics from around the world as one of The New Faces Of Comedy at The Just For Laughs Festival. In the last few years Brett has been chomping at the boob tube show by show. The NFL Quarterback Challenge... The Farrah Fawcett Story... And after appearing for his 5th appearance in Las Vegas doing stand up, the writers of NBC’s Las Vegas got the idea to write Brett into 2 episodes. Including one that was rated one of Las Vegas’ highest ever. 2010 flew in and Brett found himself touring the country doing stand-up, appearing in 3 new commercials, 5 new films and 5 new pilots - From Game Show Network to the creators of Laugh-In to Brett's new short reaching over 20,000 hits on Youtube. Most recently, Brett became one of the new chat show hosts on Actors Entertainment & Actors Reporter. With over 3 million viewers in the last year, Brett talks it up weekly with everyone from Kevin Nealon to the Red Carpet at the LA Music Awards. Stay tuned. Who knows what’s next?
