Tommy Savitt was born in Livingston, New Jersey to William and Irene Savitt, Romanian immigrant parents. Tommy graduated Canarsie High School in Brooklyn and then went on to graduate Brooklyn College earning a Bachelor's in psychology. From there Tommy went on to Brooklyn Law School. Prior to completing law school, Tommy enlisted in Marine Corp boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina in order to become a Judge Advocate General. The administrators wanted to consolidate Tommy's split-summer program and so Tommy left the training because he did not want to interrupt his law school studies. Upon leaving Parris Island, Tommy's drill instructor advised him not to be a lawyer but, rather a comedian. That was Tommy's impetus to begin to pursue his dream of becoming a stand up comedian during his second year of law school. However in order fulfill his mother's dreams of having a son who was a lawyer he received his Juris Doctor in 1997 and is licensed to practice law in New York and Connecticut. After receiving his license Tommy proceeded with his own practice in Real Estate Law in Flushing, Queens where his clients were mostly Chinese immigrants or Koreans, who knows. Tommy found his law practice unfulfilling and left it to pursue his passion, stand-up comedy.
