Tom Rosenthal is an English comedian, film and television actor.
He is a regular on the comedy circuit and is seen as a rising comic star. Tom has burst onto the comedy scene with a clutch of award wins and roles in two cult sitcoms. Tom’s whimsical, high-energy act, and warm, amiable persona has become a firm audience favourite within a very short space of time on the live scene. The son of sports presenter Jim Rosenthal, Tom doesn’t shy away from his famous connections, rather he points out his father’s, and all sports commentators’, habit of exaggeration and abundance of metaphors. His mother also works in the media Christine “Chrissy” Smith, a former Newsnight producer. Tom is one of the stars of Channel 4’s family sitcom Friday Night Dinner as well as the ITV Roman-era comedy Plebs. He also appeared in the acclaimed production of Arnold Wesker’s Chicken Soup with Barley at the Royal Court Theatre and has done voice over work for Comedy Central.
