I will be performing standup comedy in London for the very first time next month. This will not be my first time performing in an English-speaking country other than my own, but my first time performing in an English-speaking country that invented English-speaking countries.
Having an audience there to witness me doing these shows will increase the quality of the shows CONSIDERABLY.
Entire City of London: won’t you be a willing volunteer in my Grand Experiment?
From The Paul F. Tompkins Show 10th Anniversary Special
10 March 2012
Brian Whalen is one of my oldest and dearest pals. I loved doing this sketch with him, inspired by his love of imitating George Harrison’s sitar songs.
Also, you might want to listen to this one more than once, because Eban Schletter goes reference crazy under the ramble before the sketch. I missed half of the stuff he played the first time, and I was there.
"Two immense stars from the world of music, 'Weird Al' Yankovic & Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber are on today’s Comedy Bean Bag! After chatting with Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber about English accents, The Little Prince, and nautical bed bugs, the Vicar of Yanks himself joins in on the conversation. There will be talk of drugs, what we shouldn’t expect from the next ‘Weird Al’ album, and an intense game of Would You Rather? Homonyms!”
"The full all-Beyond Belief Valentines Day show from February 14, 2013. Starring Paul F. Tompkins and Paget Brewster as those married mediums Frank and Sadie Doyle. Also starring Matt Gourley, Amanda Lund, Steve Agee, Natalie Morales, Hal Lublin, Marc Evan Jackson, and Joe Mantegna.
Original music by Eban Schletter (playing theremin) and Benmont Tench (on piano).”
"Paul F. Tompkins, Howard Kremer, and Shelby Fero aka The Jaws Family are back for the thrilling conclusion of Analyze Fish! After something shocking happened during Shelby’s first viewing of Jaws, she decided to watch it a couple of more times in order to get a fresh take on the 1975 classic. Tune in to find out if Shelby enjoyed the movie as much as Paul & Howard, which characters they identify themselves as, and which fish related movies Shelby thinks Paul & Howard haven’t seen."
NOTE: If you listen to these in the order I’ve presented them, you will hear me be told a story about a snake on a plane, then tell the story to other people.
