After making a name for himself in the States, Tom broke into Europe, where he hosted his own late-night talk show on Dutch TV called "The Kevin Masters Show Starring Tom Rhodes." He then went on to host "Yorin Travel", which took him to the edges of the earth and showcased his hilarious, unique style.
An adventurer forging his own path, Rhodes has built a career that not only includes television, but also live CD’s & DVD’s, his own podcast, travel writing and a non-stop tour taking him to every corner of Earth.
Having released three DVD's and three Live CD's, Laughspin.com named his DVD Rhode Scholar the "Number One Comedy DVD of 2009".
