The American comedian and podcaster Tom Segura is very popular mainly because of his great talent and sometimes also because of his controversies. He is also an actor and writer and is especially popular because of his completely normal and mostly stories on NetFlix.
Tom Segura Bio and Age
Tom Segura was born on April 16, 1979, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and grew up alongside his sister. He is part Peruvian, part French, and Spanish. He seems to have inherited some of his funny sides from his father who, as he said, contributes regularly to his show. While growing up, Tom Segura lived in places like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and Vero Beach, Florida. For his education, the disgraced comedian went to Lenoir Rhyne University. After he finished his education, he decided to become a comedian. He later revealed that his journey into the world of comedy was in an effort to overcome all his frustrations.
Tom had a rather interesting life, which wasn’t without its problems. At the age of 18, he almost lost his life when he took a drug overdose which later put him in a coma. It was his sister who called an ambulance to try to save his life. The only thing that helped him survive was the fact that he was fat.
Today Tom Segura runs his own Netflix specials, including Tom Segura: Disgraceful and Tom Segura: Mostly Stories. More than that, he’s also very popular when it comes to podcasts like “The Joe Rogan Experience” and “WTF with Marc Maron”. He also has his podcast “Your Mom’s House”, which he runs together with his wife Christina Pazsitzky. The podcast has many very dedicated followers, and he was inspired by Rogan, who also has a very successful podcast. Rogan got Segura and his wife to start the comic podcast after he realized that both are into the same thing.
Segura wasn’t without his controversies as people wrote to Netflix to censor the show of the nefarious comedian on his platform. Various individuals and activists, including the Canadian Down Syndrome Society, have accused him of hate speech after he used the word “retarded” as a joke. In an interview with Change.org, they claimed that the jokes were “insulting and disrespectful” and should, therefore, be shut down. This is the biggest controversy he has gotten into.
Tom Segura Net Worth
The Comedian has a net worth of $3 million. His wife, on the other hand, has a net worth estimated at $2 million. In view of the fact that there are more projects under them at the moment, it is expected that the value of the comedian super duo will soon increase even further.
Segura is married to Christina Pazsitzky, who, like him, is a stand-up comedian, podcaster, writer, presenter, and TV personality. Segura and the Canadian-American Christina Pazsitzky got married in 2008. Shortly after their marriage, in 2011, they started their joint podcast. It was a very beautiful woman who took care of the production of the twice-weekly podcast.
Apart from being a comedian like her husband, Christina Pazsitzky is also an animation author and has worked for some as a voice-over artist. From here she decided to concentrate mainly on the comedy stage. 10 years later the Comedy Royals married, they have one child and they are expecting the second child, which Christina calls “Schläger 2”. Her first child was born in 2016 and she is expected to give birth to the next child towards the end of 2018.
Christina Pazsitzky and Segura now live in Los Angeles, where they also work.
Height and Body Weight (Weight Loss)
The comedian, who is now a father, joked that he had to try and lose weight because he did not want his children to be called out at school because their father is fat. The irony, however, is that, as mentioned earlier, his weight was one of the things that saved his life as a teenager when he overdosed.
If you look at the man’s body measurements, he is slightly above average in both weight and height. Although he is 1.85 m tall, his weight is unknown, although he revealed that he and another comic star, who is also overweight, caused fans to shame them in a weight loss contest. As a result, he lost up to 50 pounds.
