Tom Gore

Biography

Born and raised in Newport RI. of Irish heritage, he realized from an early age that he enjoyed entertaining people with his off beat sense of humor. His first acting experience came as a high school freshman when he performed in a school play. He immediately fell in love with the entire theater experience. That feeling of exhilaration after the final curtain came down is one that never left him. After graduating he decided to put that on hold to join the Army and serve his country. With his drive and determination he advanced quickly and was trained in a multitude of advanced skills. He eventually entered flight school where he was trained as an attack combat pilot. Throughout his 20 year military career he served with distinction including 3 tours in Afghanistan and 1 in Iraq, and was decorated in battle as an Apache Longbow Helicopter pilot. It was the difficult things he experienced in battle that influenced him to seek out the lighter side of life through his early love of comedy and entertaining people. With his quick wit and improvisational abilities, he soon became known among his fellow soldiers for his ability to step out of himself and create comedic characters with great humor and vibrancy. These techniques helped him deal with the day to day realities of war. It was after he no longer had to concentrate on such life and death struggles that he had time to reflect on what he wanted to do with the next chapter of his life after he left the Army. So, while stationed at Fort Bragg NC. he decided to pursue in earnest his passion for acting and theater. His first step was to join a local ensemble group of comedians who had formed the "Horrible Folks Comedy Show", where he performed and helped write comedy skits of all types. He also began acting in local theater where he once again got the chance to take on more dramatic roles. And, though his love of comedy that brought him into acting, he realized it was performing itself that he enjoyed most. He (especially) likes ensemble productions and working along side other like minded performers in ensemble casts and the connection he felt with his audiences. This realization was pivotal in solidifying his decision to pursue the performing arts full time. He continues to act and explore different genres of TV and film. He's also presently writing and producing a Fantasy-Adventure with a strong dose of horror. A strong member of his community he loves animals, does volunteer work and looks forward to playing Santa Claus each year for the children of soldiers stationed at Fort Bragg during the tree lighting ceremony.
