Photos with Tom Brady
Raised on the back-streets of Jersey, Tom's award-winning fiction helped earn him a scholarship to Harvard College. Arriving in Cambridge, he landed a lead acting role opposite Amy Brenneman where they stripped naked and smeared ice cream and sprinkles on each other - and Tom knew a career in show business was his destiny. At Harvard, Brady acted in and directed dozens of theater productions, studied under Joe Chaikin, Sam Shepard, and David Mamet (to name a few) - and began writing his own plays and screenplays.

In the islands, Tom directed professionally, continued to write and direct his own original work, and landed a featured role in the CBS Viet Nam drama "Tour Of Duty." Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Tom worked as Assistant Director at the Mark Taper Forum's Mainstage and New Work Festival, directed at playhouses around Hollywood, and co-directed a very gratifying national tour showcasing the talents of children with disabilities and from impoverished backgrounds. As a writer, Brady was discovered by Al Jean & Mike Reiss at "The Simpsons", and went on to write and produce television shows such as The Critic (1994), The Simpsons (1989), Home Improvement (1991), Men Behaving Badly (1996), Sports Night (1998), and Good Vibes (2011) to name a few. Expanding his work to feature films, Tom's credits as a writer and/or director include The Animal (2001), The Hot Chick (2002), The Comebacks (2007), and Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star (2011) written by Adam Sandler and Nick Swardson. Tom is currently EP and show runner for FX's new hit animation show, Chozen (2014).
