Tom Eaton is a prop comic. He tours nationally in the U.S. with his "trunk o' junk", the trademark of his prop comedy. Eaton has performed his comedy act in over three countries and on two continents.
Eaton was born in Orange County, California, on April 8, 1982. He is the son of Thomas Eaton Sr., a sandwich magnate from Wisconsin. He began performing in junior high school theater, playing the role of Sancho Panza in the Spiro Agnew Junior High School production of Man of La Mancha.
In 2004, Eaton was in early talks with ESPN2 to act as the sidekick for a late night sports variety show hosted by Scottie Pippen called Just Inside the Arc. ESPN opted to fill the time slot with World Series of Poker reruns.
