He is a professional comedian, who has recently started to introduce himself as “Tom Holland’s father”. The man confessed to “Voice” magazine, that making people laugh used to be the only thing he was really good at. In all the other activities he was average – in sports, sciences, etc. Thus, he had the idea to choose humor as a career. But before becoming a full-time stand-up comedian, he studied textile art at Leeds University.
His first gig as a comedian took place in 1991. Then he entertained people at the Comedy Café, located in London. There he was scouted by another comic, Eddie Izzard, who became his manager and helped take part in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. His talent was obvious, and in spite of his newcomer status, Dominic earned his first award.
After that, he moved his way on television. He participated in a number of comedy shows, including “After Hours” and “Bring me the Head of Light Entertainment”. In addition, he hosted the radio show and released a number of books, like “Sit Down Comedy”, “A Man’s Life” and the most popular one – “How Tom Holland Eclipsed His Dad”.
Really, Dominic thinks, that being the father of Spiderman is the highest peak of his career. By the way, the comedian supposes, that his sons are so good-looking not due to him, but due to their great mother Nikki, which fell in love with him due to his sense of humor.
In spite of his son’s enormous popularity, Dom considers them as the normal family. He tries to keep his son Tom grounded to reduce the public pressure on him.
