LOS ANGELES: In One Hour.
Join us downtown. I am heading down there because I have a wife, sisters, nieces, aunts, female cousins, female friends, and I am of woman born. Also, I’m a human being.
FREE COMEDY... AND SCIENCE?!?!?!
I was thrilled to have taken part in Star Talk Live and engage in some goofballery with some good pals as astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson exulted in the wonders of science and curiosity. This was a fun and inspiring night! Direct download here. As for iTunes, here’s what StarTalk had to say: “It seems that there are problems with the iTunes file. (Thanks for letting us know...

Two years ago today, at this hour, my wife and I were married. Immediately after being pronounced so, and after kissing for the first time as husband and wife, the song “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show played, and we processed past our family and our friends and began our new life together. Last month, I celebrated the tenth anniversary of the live variety show I do here in...
Tonight! Watch me endeavor to crush the dreams of a young Canadian fellow attempting stand-up comedy here in the United States of America! Oh, I can hear you: “Paul, how could you be so cruel?! Everyone knows you are the nicest comedian out there! That’s why your nickname is, ‘Paul F. Tompkins, The Living Saint Who Does Comedy’!” Hey, calm down. There, there....
LABORING UNDER DELUSIONS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
It’s true. Now you may buy my most recent stand-up special on DVD and watch it all damn day. This is the full set that was recorded that fateful night in October, 2011. The broadcast version was only 42 minutes long, but this sumbitch runs one hour and fifteen minutes. Uh, that seems like a lot of extra comedy to me! I apologize for my sarcastic “uh,” but I am trying to prove...

trackpft: So Paul F. Tompkins is doing press for his new special Laboring Under Delusions (Saturday night, 4/21/2012, Comedy Central), and he has been doing some interviews. I thought it might be helpful to have a entry with links to them all for anyone who can’t get to them all right away (me). Here is…

daveholmes: We should all turn off our televisions and close our laptops and go outside and move our limbs and play with each other and laugh and smooch and wrestle, because we are all going to be dead in what will seem like 45 minutes and we are going to stay that way until the end of an infinite number of forevers. Have a great weekend!
Paul F. Tompkins: Laboring Under Delusions airs at 11pm E/P on Comedy Central. Please watch it. You are under no obligation to enjoy it. It’s fine by me if you sit through the whole thing staring daggers at the TV, grinding your teeth to powder as you will a sandbag to fall on my head (it won’t, FYI; the special was recorded months ago). Just as long as you watch. Maybe...

Now all can be revealed. I witnessed Matt Damon’s unnatural behaviors on the set of 2009’s The Informant! and lived to tell the tale.
Music & Talking: Best Friends!
I was flattered to be invited to appear on KCRW’s Guest DJ Project with host Anne Litt. It ended up being an unexpectedly emotional interview for me. In a good way. As a fan of this particular show, it meant a great deal to me to be a guest. I hope you will listen and I hope you will enjoy! Listen/download from here (also on iTunes).

So, I opened up Tumblr to send out a reminder about this show that I’m doing at Largo on Saturday, and I see I have already been beaten to the punch by the man himself, David Rees. Just so you know: I am really looking forward to this show. Not just performing on it, just seeing it. David Rees is one of the funniest people I have ever met, and I believe you have some notion of the circles...

I return to Bob’s Burgers, reprising my role as “Randy.” Here is a bit of sneakery peekery! Also appearing: Paul Scheer and Dave (Gruber) Allen! If you haven’t seen this show yet, please do check it out. It’s filled with nothing but the funniest people.
A young* man named Adam Paisley made this track, assembled from the intros of the first ten episodes of The Pod F. Tompkast. When is the next episode of The Pod F. Tompkast, you may be silently typing in your head? I have an answer for you and that silent typist of a head of yours: SOON. *I am only going by his profile pic; I’ve never met him and can’t say for sure that he is...
