―Tom's "Last Week" catchphrase
Thomas James Ridgewell (born: June 27, 1990YouTuber, comedian, producer, and director living in London. He also is the uploader of a popular series called asdfmovie, and one of the creators of the card game based on the aforementioned series It's Muffin Time.), better known online as TomSka, is a British
Tom has two channels: TomSka and DarkSquidge. His TomSka channel focuses on him making sketch comedy with other YouTubers and is mainly known for the asdfmovie series. There are 11 movies in the series so far, not including the deleted scenes. While making videos for YouTube, Tom almost got kicked out of The University of Lincoln for posting a parody of the university's advert. This was because of the inappropriate content shown in the video, but he was forgiven when they saw the view count. Tom's TomSka channel is where he uploads the sketches and animations he has directed. Tom's second channel DarkSquidge is mainly used for his weekly vlog Last Week since it started on 2016, but also uploaded other vlogs and a series of unreleased videos that didn't quite make the cut called Scrap'd Week.
In 2003, Tom met then 14-year-old Edd Gould online. He and Edd started to produce an animated series called "Eddsworld" around 2005. Later on, in 2006, he became the main voice of his character in the series, along with Edd and two of Edd's other friends, who together made the cast of 4 main characters, Tom, Edd, Matt, and Tord. They found success in this series and they become an icon on Newgrounds and YouTube; the series took a rapid turn when in 2012 Edd died of Leukaemia and Tom took over the production of Eddsworld until 2016.
asdfmovie is a popular series he made. Each movie is composed of various animations with very random and nonsensical humor.
