After he was through with his education, he decided to become a comedian. He later revealed that his journey to the comedy world was in a bid to hold in all his frustrations.
Tom had a rather interesting life which was not without its many problems. He almost lost his life at the age of 18 when he took a drug overdose that later put him in a coma. It was his sister who called an ambulance in an attempt to help save his life. The only thing that helped him to survive was the fact that he was fat.

The podcast has a lot of very dedicated followers and it was inspired by Rogan who also has a very successful podcast. Rogan got Segura and his wife to start the comic podcast after realizing that both of them are into the same thing.
Segura has not been without his controversies as people have written to Netflix to censor the Disgraceful comedian’s show on its platform. Different individuals and campaigners including the Canadian Down Syndrome Society have accused him of hate speech after he used the word retarded in a joke. Talking to Change.org, they petitioned that the jokes were “offensive and disrespectful” and so it should be brought down. This is the biggest controversy he has gotten into.
