Thomas James "Tom" Kenny (born July 13, 1962) is an American actor, voice actor and comedian who provides the voice of the Taunting Jester Magisword in the Mighty Magiswords episode, Surely You Jest-O.
He also provides the voice of the title (and main) character in Nickelodeon's popular animated show SpongeBob SquarePants.
He is close friends with creator Kyle A. Carrozza (they both met at a Nickelodeon's Random! Cartoons wrap party from Andy Paley, who is Tom's friend and scored Kyle's MooBeard short on Random! Cartoons) in which they ramble on geeky stuff. Kyle also worked with Tom on some SpongeBob-related projects as Kyle portrayed the Spongebob-obsessed nerd guy dressed in a Spongebob costume in the "Ridin' the Hook" music video (Tom made a cameo in the video during the grocery scene) and even made a cover for the Best Day Ever album, which even though it was rejected by Steven Hillenburg, Tom still bought it from Kyle among other things. Kyle was also a storyboard artist on the SpongeBob movie, Sponge Out of Water, which was his last project before Mighty Magiswords got picked up by Cartoon Network. An autographed printed picture of Ice King can be seen at Kyle's office as well.
