Tom Thomsen was born and raised on a farm
near Omaha Nebraska, where he began playing the piano at the
age of four. Through his career as a young pianist, Tom
was able to win the Nebraska Music Association superior award
with honors three years in a row for his performances of Grieg,
Schumann, Mozart and Schubert. Tom studied composition for
two years at the college of St. Olaf, where he decided not
to be a music teacher and pursue film scoring. Shortly after
moving to New York, Tom began getting work with some of the
best and brightest performers in improvisational comedy today.
Tom has performed with groups such as "GOGA", "The
Improvoholics", "Chez Improv", and many others.
Tom is currently one of three resident pianists for New York's
longest running Off-Broadway comedy show, "Chicago City

feature film, "Season of Youth", which premiers
