Baron Vaughn (Born 1980 in New Mexico) is an American comedian, actor and writer.

In November of 2015, it was announced that Vaughn would be involved in the crowd-funded revival of Mystery Science Theater 3000. He provides the voice of Tom Servo (as well as operating the mouth), which he also did for the videos produced in support of the Kickstarter campaign, including a bumper for Turkey Day '15.

Baron Vaughn did not perform as Tom Servo during any of the live tour shows or streaming events. After the announcement that there would no additional seasons of MST3K produced for Netflix, Vaughn's potential involvement with any future MST3K projects became unclear. He continued to list Tom Servo among his roles in his Twitter profile, and promoted MST3K-related projects (such as the Live Riff-Along) even though he was not involved.

In 2021, it was announced that Baron Vaughn would return as the voice and operator of Tom Servo for some episodes of the crowd-funded Season 13. He participated in several of the livestream events to promote the Kickstarter campaign.

In Experiment #1302, Baron made his first appearance as Dr. Kabahl, whom he played several times throughout Season 13 (in episodes and special events).
