Tom Z was born in Boston, but he grew up in Syracuse, NY. It worked out well because with his slow Upstate drawl he can say inappropriate things and people will laugh, whereas with a Boston accent he'd sound like a total dick. When he graduated high school, there was a thunderous applause, not because anyone cared about him, but because his name starts with a Z, so he was last and everyone was glad the boring ceremony was over. Tom’s interests include '90s rock, mesh shorts, hot dogs, sleep, flannel shirts, the Buffalo Bills, getting drunk on Sundays, unironically listening to R. Kelly, and most importantly, writing. OK, that's a lie, writing is like 9th on that list. It's WAY behind Sunday Funday. His dislikes include grocery shopping, the band Aerosmith and any show on the Bravo channel. Tom lives his life by one simple motto: "Maximum results with minimal effort." He's willing to put in the work to achieve his goals, but he'd prefer those goals fall into his lap without any effort. He currently lives in Connecticut and has an Asian girlfriend, which he believes entitles him to make all the racist jokes he wants. He insults her driving, but she took his soul, so they're even. That's about it. Oh, and also, this one time he went out to the bar wearing 8 popped collars. It was pretty funny.
