Tommy Blacha

Tommy Blacha (born August 25, 1962) is an Emmy-nominated American comedy writer, working for shows such as Da Ali G Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Tommy is currently working on Metalocalypse as a voice actor. Tommy co-created the show with Brendon Small and wrote for the first two seasons, but as of season 3 he is strictly involved as a voice actor. He is still credited for his role as an original co-creator following his departure from production.

Tommy Blacha was completely uninvolved with "Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem", and his voices for Murderface and Dr. Rockzo were imitated by Brendon Small, while Mike Keneally voiced Toki. In October 2015, when Brendon Small was asked in an interview if Blacha will be on board with the Metalocalypse Finale: "Metalocalypse: The Army of the Doomstar", Small stated "we do not know that, just yet". He was back to reprise his roles in "Army of the Doomstar".


Tommy started as a local Chicago Comedy writer, where he met Andy Richter. Andy eventually landed Tommy a job with the Conan O'Brien show in 1993. Tommy worked on the Conan O'Brien show until 1999 writing bit pieces and developing such characters as "Gaseous Wiener" and "PimpBot5000".

After leaving the Conan O'Brien show, Tommy went on to work for WWE in 1999 as a Creative Director. At WWE he helped come up with new plotlines and stories for the company.
