Thomas Jacob Black was born on August 28, 1969, in Santa Monica, California, to satellite engineers Thomas William Black as well as Judith Love Cohen. He grew up in the California beach town of Hermosa Beach. His mother was a writer who worked on the Hubble Space Telescope’s research ground station.

Through his mother, he had three elder half-siblings: scientist Neil Siegel, Howard Siegel, as well as Rachel Siegel. His mother was Jewish from birth, while his father converted to Judaism later in life.

Black grew up as a devout follower of Judaism, attending Hebrew school and having a bar mitzvah.

When Black was ten years old, his parents split, and his father stopped practising Judaism. Black relocated to Culver City with his father and saw his mother on a regular basis. He first featured in a commercial for the Activision game Pitfall! in 1982 when he was a youngster. Black’s parents put him inside the Poseidon School for high school, private secondary education for pupils who are suffering within the standard school system. He went to Crossroads School as well, where he excelled in acting. Later, he enrolled in the University of California, Los Angeles, but left out throughout his sophomore year to consider a career in show business. Tim Robbins, a UCLA student, changes may result in Black in Bob Roberts. He has recurring parts inside the HBO sketch comedy series, Mr Show, in 1995 and 1996.
