''Thomas and Monkey Comics'' is a webcomic strip at [[http://www.thomasandmonkeycomics.com/ thomasandmonkeycomics.com]] It was begun by Thomas Davidson in January 2010. The comic centers on the titular characters, Thomas and Monkey. Thomas is a court sketch artist who cracks horrifically bad jokes, usually while trying to pick up girls. Monkey is his roommate and (seemingly) only friend, a well-read primate who plays video games.

The two have been friends since childhood and are now out in the adult world of nightclubs, deadlines, bills and unfulfilled dreams.

Monkey frequently questions why he is friends with Thomas, not least because he has seen ''Confessions of a Shopaholic'' over 20 times.

The webcomic is filled with bad pick-up lines, puns about genitals, drinking in the shower, and cigars on the rooftop.
