Everyone who donated to the Thrilling Adventure Hour kickstarter, I thank you.
I am neither a writer nor producer for The Thrilling Adventure Hour, I am just a person who gets to perform in it on a regular basis. And doing so has been one of the greatest joys of my career. I am deeply fond of all of my fellow performers, and equally fond, also, of Acker and Blacker, who created this wonderful thing.
To get to make this movie with all of these delightful people is beyond exciting. But as much as I cannot wait to make it, I really can’t wait for you to see it.
Friends! The THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR concert film is almost a reality! With mere hours left in the kickstarter campaign, we need only $5,000 more to fund the movie!
Hey. I try not to play this card too often. But I give you A LOT of entertainment for free. So even if you have no idea what the Thrilling Adventure Hour is, I am asking you to kick in one dollar. ONE DOLLAR.
Between the 310,00 people that follow me on Twitter, the 45,000 people that follow this Tumblr, and the 16,000 fans of my Facebook page, if you subtract people that are followers on all three of those and take away all SPAMbots, that works out to FIVE THOUSAND PEOPLE.
So come on, you five thousand! A dollar each! YOU’VE SPENT MORE ON DUMBER SHIT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE GIVEN YOU FAR LESS THAN ME!
Featuring my real-life friend and fake radio-wife from The Thrilling Adventure Hour, Paget Brewster. You will aslo hear one of the silliest sketches in the history of The Paul F. Tompkins Show, featuring the hilarious Jessica St. Clair.
Also? I urge you to check out The Thrilling Adventure Hour if you haven’t already. And once you get hooked on it, give to the TAH Kickstarter campaign. You can help bring the show to many other mediums and procure fun, unique items (both tangible and intangible) for your own good self.

Tremendously talented designer Philip Estrada created clothes for Paget Brewster and me to wear as Frank & Sadie Doyle for the Thrilling Adventure show in New York. Fellow clotheshorses, check out his recounting of the process (and more pictures) here.
