AUSTIN, TX: This Friday. Two shows. Me. Superego. LIVE.
That’s all you need to know.
I beg your pardon, there is actually some more information that you need to know. Times and location, things like that. I apologize for my presumptuousness. ANYWAY.

One of the great joys of my professional life is forcing Busy Philipps to break on stage. - Paul

Busy Philipps trying very hard not to laugh at Paul F. Tompkins and the voice he chose for his character in Sparks Nevada: Marshal from Mars.

Yo, this is Tut.
All I wanted to do was just hang out here on weekends, just to unwind and chill out— watch a dog get neutered, a kitten take a pill. Maybe see a hamster get thrown in the trash. Then one day this guy said, Hey, wanna try something wild? Well, he took me to a different animal hospital, a much more intense one, and it. Was. A RUSH. Have you ever seen a rhino get a tonsillectomy? Ever seen a giraffe hooked up to a dialysis machine? Man, it’s like nothing else. Now I need more and more and I’m out of control. I’m watching crocodiles get skin tags removed like 5, 6 times a day. Oops! Somehow I died from this? Now I’m in heaven with all the trash-can hamsters! LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES, KIDS!
Sara is a terrifically talented artist and the very idea of this is flattering in the extreme! - Paul
Here is a fun thing in which I got to participate! The very lovely Jason Klamm was kind enough to invite me onto his fantastic podcast Comedy on Vinyl where, normally, people way more funny and articulate than I am talk about their favorite comedy records. I wanted to talk about PFT so I picked Freak Wharf, since it’s a nice lead-in to the all the parts of Paul’s comedy that inspire me artistically (I talk about his podcast as well, and most of his artistic/comedic output, really).
Anyway, listen here if you want and tell me later if it sounds okay—there’s no WAY I can listen to this myself! Hahaha… heh… gulp
Thank you, John Hodgman, for not letting me not stay an extra day in Brooklyn so I could guest on Secret Society. It was fun and you are fun.
