Tommy was deserted by his parents, literally left in the trash when he was 18 months old. However, he was adopted soon by the lady who found and rescued him, and was raised in an interracial family, since Davidson is African-American and his adoptive parents are Caucasian. The actor moved with his family from DC to Colorado, then to Wyoming, later to Oregon and finally to Silver Spring, Maryland. There he attended high school, and afterwards attended the University of the District of Columbia for one semester.

Tommy’s career began right after he performed his first stand-up performance in a Washington DC strip club, and then performed in other comedy shows in Washington, Philadelphia and Baltimore. When Davidson moved to California, he met Robert Townsend, who helped him to appear on national television for a very first time.
