Early life[edit]

Eaton was born in Orange County, California on April 8, 1982. He is the son of Thomas Eaton Sr. and sandwich magnate from Wisconsin.[1] He began performing in junior high school theater, playing the role of Sancho Panza in the Spiro Agnew Junior High School production of Man from La Mancha.


After briefly moving to Chicago where Eaton honed his brand of prop comedy, he was tapped as a presenter for the 2002 Comedy Central Roast of Chevy Chase.[2]

In 2004 Eaton was in early talks with ESPN2 to act as the sidekick for a late night sports variety show hosted Scottie Pippen called Just Inside the Arc. ESPN opted to fill the time slot with World Series of Poker reruns.

Eaton was awarded the Don Knotts Memorial Award by the Greater San Bernardino, California Key Club for his contributions to their 2006 "Suds and Duds" car wash–clothing drive. He is the second recipient of this award.

Eaton tours comedy clubs nationally. He is also lending his voice to the character of Emilio the Llama in the web cartoon Two for Tacos, which was released on the web in Fall 2009.
