This comunity was started on an impulse, and out of total respect and lusting for Mr. Thomas Lennon. Since this is so freakin new, this intro and layout and so on will be changing gradually.
One of the few members of the New York-based comedy troupe The State to come from the Midwest, comedian Thomas Lennon is also an accomplished writer. In the early '90s, he made several short films, including The Waiters, which has been aired in the U.S. on the Bravo channel. Lennon wrote much of the material during the three broadcast seasons of The State on MTV, including the popular "Monkey Torture" sketch.
After the show ended, he joined cast members Kerri Kenney and Michael Ian Black to create the Comedy Central variety show spoof Viva Variety, based on an old sketch from The State. On the big screen, Lennon played the voice of the documentarian in the comedy Drop Dead Gorgeous, the feature film debut of State director Michael Patrick Jann. He also appeared in the feature films Memento, Out Cold, and Boat Trip, as well as TV commercials for various candy items and video-game platforms. Back on television, he had a recurring role in the short-lived ABC medical drama MDs.
He then reunited with Kenney and other State members to create the reality show cop spoof Reno 911!, starring himself as pretty boy Lieutenant Jim Dangle. Directed by Jann, the show was was a hit on Comedy Central in 2003. The same year, he also appeared in the mainstream romantic comedies A Guy Thing, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and Le Divorce.
Acting projects for 2004 include the comedy The Godfather of Green Bay and the drama Heights. Working as a screenwriter, Lennon also received writing credit for the Starsky & Hutch film remake and the action comedy remake Taxi. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
