Tom Shillue is an American stand up comedian, FOX News Host, actor and storyteller. He grew up in Norwood, Massachusetts.
Television and film
He has appeared in several TV series and short films. Recently he has featured on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon both performing stand up comedy and performing in Fallon's Barbershop Quartet, with whom he performed "Sexy Back" along with Justin Timberlake and Roxanne along with Sting. He has also appeared with Conan O'Brien doing stand up.
He became the permanent host of Red Eye on June 22, 2015 since Greg Gutfeld left to host his new show The Greg Gutfeld Show.
Stand Up and theatre
During the height of the Lewinsky scandal, Shillue demonstrated his abilities to portray a wide range of characters when he all but transformed himself into comedic incarnations of John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Harry Truman and special prosecutor Ken Starr in playwright Eric Zaccar's social satire for the stage, "Starr's on Broadway."
Shillue announced his 12 in 12 project, whereby he would release an album of new material each month from November 2012 to October 2013. Some viewers of Red Eye believed the promotion of these new albums was simply a running gag on the show, a misconception which Shillue and Gutfeld dispelled on air, leading to a spike in sales.
