(MONTCLAIR, NJ) -- The Wellmont Theater presents Tom Arnold on Saturday, September 22nd at 8:00pm. The comedian recently shot an episode of NCIS: NEW ORLEANS and was in a pair of independent features - BIGGER and SAVING FLORA. His special, TOM ARNOLD: PAST & PRESENT IMPERFECTLY for Comedy Dynamics is up next, along with his own political series for Viceland.
As a writer, producer, and actor, Tom Arnold has established himself with both television and film audiences worldwide, having won such awards as the Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award. Additionally, he helped put Fox Sports Network on the map with his hosting duties on BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD and CMT’s top-rated MY BIG REDNECK franchise including MY BIG REDNECK FAMILY, which premiered at the highest ratings in CMT history.
Arnold cornered the market on playing the resident comic relief in films like NINE MONTHS with Hugh Grant, Julianne Moore and Robin Williams, TRUE LIES with Arnold Schwarzenegger, HERO with Dustin Hoffman and AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY with Mike Myers. Arnold was seen in Stephen Gyllenhaal’s quirky political comedy GRASSROOTS, Tyler Perry’s MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION, HIT AND RUN with Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper, ANY DAY starring alongside Sean Bean, Eva Longoria and Kate Walsh, and the Yahoo Comedy Series SIN CITY SAINTS starring alongside Andrew Santino and Malin Akerman, where he plays Kevin Freeman, a private casino host who happens to know all the city’s secrets. He can also be seen in documentaries SUPERMENSCH: THE LEGEND OF SHEP GORDON and I AM CHRIS FARLEY, and in Season 10 of TRAILER PARK BOYS on Netflix.
Arnold has successfully broken out of the comedic stereotype and is becoming a fixture at film festivals by landing more mature and dramatic roles. He received critical praise for his role in GARDENS OF THE NIGHT opposite John Malkovich, THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD starring John Malkovich and Tom Hanks, GOOD DICK opposite Jason Ritter, and THE YEAR OF GETTING TO KNOW US opposite Sharon Stone, Jimmy Fallon and Lucy Liu. In 2005, he received critical notice for his role in Don Roos’ HAPPY ENDINGS for Lionsgate Films. He was also seen in PRIDE opposite Terrence Howard and ANIMAL FACTORY directed by Steve Buscemi. Other film credits include SOUL PLANE, CRADLE TO THE GRAVE, EXIT WOUNDS and THE KID & I.
Arnold began his career in comedy early when he moved to Los Angeles to write on the highly successful television series ROSEANNE, before eventually serving as executive producer for the sitcom. He went on to star in his own HBO special entitled TOM ARNOLD: THE NAKED TRUTH, and then wrote, produced and starred in his own television series THE JACKIE THOMAS SHOW, TOM and THE TOM SHOW.
