Tom Leopold

Contributor

From writing episodes of Seinfeld and Cheers to working with such comedic legends as Steve Allen, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Billy Crystal, Chevy Chase and Christopher Guest, Tom Leopold has been at the epicenter of comedy for nearly forty years.  As he and his wife struggled to care for their teenage daughter who suffered from a life-threatening eating disorder, Leopold experienced a profound conversion to the Catholic faith.  He enrolled in RCIA, and came into full communion with the Church this past Easter.  After a chance encounter, Leopold has turned to Father Jonathan Morris, parochial vicar of the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York City, for spiritual guidance.
