Tom Romita

Writer. Director. Frustrated Human.

Tom has been successfully (not) writing “unscripted” television shows for almost twenty years.  From the romantic comedy of “Blind Date” and “Matched in Manhattan,” to the family drama of “Wife Swap” and “Shalom in the Home,” to the workplace shenanigans of “Counting Cars” and “New York Ink,” Tom has crafted stories to the delight of millions of viewers over the years.  He’s reached a level of success that has allowed him to live in the city he loves, New York, and secure a wife and daughter so beautiful, people think he’s adopted.  But now, he’s doing it the right way. He’s writing stuff down. Right here. Please enjoy his website, and feel free to share, Tweet or contact Tom directly to say hi, exchange ideas, or introduce him to really rich people who might want to produce his movies.

Why can't anyone get kids with cancer baseball caps that fit?

 For years we struggled with ‘child-proof’ tops on some over the counter medications. Now they have ‘easy open’ tops on the same medications. Huh!?

Stubborn smart people rule the world. Stubborn stupid people should be taken out back and shot.

Is the glue that holds the ends of toilet paper rolls together safe to put up your butt?

 If I buy one more item with a price sticker on it that doesn’t come off when I get it home I’m gonna kill somebody.

I "like" politics like an oncologist "likes" cancer.
