Comedian Thomas Lennon took an interest in comedy while studying at Oak Park River Forest High School in Illinois, (via West Suburb Living). Lennon participated in a school production of "You Can't Take It With You" and immediately realized he wanted to be an actor. He later attended New York University, where he formed the comedy troupe The State his freshman year (via Vulture). This group was able to bring their comedy genius to the masses when MTV decided to let "The State" run their own sketch comedy television series, (via NPR). The series only ran from 1993 to 1995 but helped launch Lennon's careers in comedy.

Flash forward a year and television is back with COVID-19 protocols in place and that means Lennon is back as well. The actor took to social media this week to tease his return.
