Tom Segura

by madman on September 13, 2018

Birth Name: Thomas W. Segura

Place of Birth: Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.

Date of Birth: April 16, 1979

*French-Canadian, Irish, English, Cajun/French, Spanish (father)
*Peruvian (mother)

Tom Segura is an American comedian, actor, and podcaster.

Tom has written:

I’m unequal parts French, Spanish, Peruvian, and Irish. The part of me that likes to smell your stinky stuff, I’m guessing that’s French.

Tom has also stated:

Now, as you can tell, I speak beautiful, perfect Spanish. And… It is to no credit of my own. My mother is Peruvian, and her English wasn’t good. So, she spoke to us in Spanish. And that’s how I picked up on Spanish. I get so many different reactions when people find out I speak Spanish. I either get completely incredulous people who are like, “Holy fuckin’ shit. I can’t believe what’s coming out of your mouth right now. I think I’m gonna piss my pants.” And I’m like, “I don’t speak Aramaic. I speak Spanish. Why is this…?” They’re like, “It’s not supposed to come outta you, bro.”

Tom’s mother is Peruvian. His paternal grandfather had Spanish and Cajun (French) ancestry on one side and British Isles/English on the other, and his paternal grandmother was of half French-Canadian and half Irish descent.

Tom is married to stand-up comedian and podcaster Christina Pazsitzky, with whom he has two children.

Tom’s paternal grandfather likely was Horatio Weston Segura (the son of Joseph Otto Segura and Mable/Mabel Weston). Joseph was born in Louisiana, the son of Odra Emmanuel Segura and Emethilde Broussard, and had Spanish and Cajun/French ancestry. Mable was the daughter of Horatio Stephen Weston and Elizabeth A. Wall, and was of British Isles descent.

Tom’s paternal grandmother likely was Jane Ann Nadeau (the daughter of Alexandre Thomas Nadeau and Cecilia Margaret Stack). Alexandre was born in Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada, the son of Jean Baptiste Nadeau and Mary Louise Drolet. Cecilia was the daughter of John King Stack, who was born in Duagh, County Kerry, Ireland, and of Jane Ann Brown, who was born in Goderich, Ontario, Canada, to an Irish father and a Welsh-born mother, who was likely of Irish descent.
