Jack Thomas is an executive producer, former attorney, and stand-up comedian. He executive produces Disney Channel's animated series "The Replacements." Thomas has had an eclectic writing career - everything from writing introductions for American Movie Classics to writing comedy sketches for the FOX NFL Pregame Show to even polishing up the script for the feature "Carpool" - before landing in animation in 2001 on "The Fairly OddParents".
While working on The Fairly OddParents, Thomas moved up from writer to Associate Story Editor and received writing credit on well over a third of the show's 70+ episodes. Thomas attended Ohio University where he first met Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart Simpson) when the two were on the speech team together. He then graduated from The Ohio State University Law School and practiced law for four years in Columbus, Ohio. In his second year of practice, Thomas won a case in the Ohio Supreme Court. He also won his one and only criminal jury trial. Then he decided to retire from the law undefeated and become a stand up comic. During his stand up years Thomas performed in comedy clubs all over the country, working with such acts as Jerry Seinfeld, Dennis Miller and Ellen DeGeneres. His favorite gig was opening for old friend and fellow Ohioan, Drew Carey in the main showroom at Caesar's Palace. He was born in Vienna, Virginia.
