Thomas A. Shillue (//; born June 13, 1966) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, author, and talk-show host from Norwood, Massachusetts. He was a correspondent on The Daily Show on Comedy Central and hosted Red Eye on Fox News. He released his first book, Mean Dads for a Better America: The Generous Rewards of an Old-Fashioned Childhood, in 2017. In June 2017, Shillue began hosting a weekday afternoon three-hour syndicated talk radio show on Fox News Radio, also heard on Sirius XM's Fox News Talk Channel 450.
Television and film
Shillue appears regularly on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as a member of the "Ragtime Gals", a barbershop quartet that also includes Jimmy Fallon, which performs pop songs in a barbershop style; examples include singing "SexyBack" along with Justin Timberlake and "Roxanne" along with Sting. Shillue has also appeared with Conan O'Brien doing stand up.
Since 2014, Shillue has subbed in for Greg Gutfeld, co-hosting The Five. Shillue served as the permanent host of Red Eye from June 22, 2015, when Gutfeld left to host his new show The Greg Gutfeld Show, until Red Eye was cancelled in April 2017. Shillue remains a contributor on the Fox News Channel.
Stand-up and theatre
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.
On April 25, 2017, Shillue, along with TV's Andy Levy began hosting Fox News Radio from 6 pm to 9 pm Eastern. On July 10, 2017, Shillue started as the host of the "Tom Shillue Show" from 3 pm to 6 pm eastern time on Fox News Radio.
