Thomas James

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Thomas James was born in Syracuse, New York in 1962 to Paul and Thresa.  He attended Bishop Grimes High School in East Syracuse.  According to what I’ve read and my research did not turn up where he went to college however, it was mentioned several times, so the mystery continues.

Anyway, on with my post.  After college he went around the country performing as a stand-up comedian.  He met his wife Jill in 1992, they have two children Mack and Nora.  In 2010 and 2014 he won the Annie Award. 

If you are lucky to have kids, grandkids or if another family member has them then undoubtedly, you’ve heard him.  He is a man of many talents as Thomas James Kenny is the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants.  As I was writing this all I could think of is that laugh.  What about you?  Until tomorrow pass on a smile as you watch that smile on all the kids who enjoy watching SpongeBob.

His voice brings smiles to so many children. I didn't know who he was, but now I have a smile on my face too...

Although I don't watch cartoons (and neither do my kids), I did see a few episodes of Sponge Bob. It's different, but very clever.

I had no idea he was a stand up comedian before he was the voice of Spongebob. Thanks for another interesting history lesson!
