About Tom

Tom’s Story

Tom Test has a BBA in Marketing from the University of Michigan, but cheerfully left the corporate world in the late 1980s. He graduated from Chicago improv school The Player’s Workshop in 1989, which culminated in a tom standing-room only performance on the Second City main stage, where Tom got big laughs in his improv scenes. He later took improv classes at Second City’s Training Center with legendary instructors such as Marty DeMaat, Norm Holly and Don DePollo.


Tom began his professional voice-over career in 1989, acting as a high school kid for a SportMart radio campaign. Since then he has voiced thousands of radio/TV spots, some of which have won Telly Awards (Fidelity Federal Savings, N. Mississippi Health Care and Mayo Clinic-owned Franciscan Skemp Health System). Tom was the talent for a TV/radio/print campaign for the country’s largest furniture store – Nebraska Furniture Mart – which won an award for “Watchability,” defined as “willingness to watch the entire spot rather than change the channel.”
