Paul F. Tompkins is no ordinary comedian… he doesn’t just say words to you, he puts on a play right in front of your face. Voice changes, inflection changes, accents, and a sense of humor sent from the heavens. Combine that with an exquisite wardrobe filled with three-piece suits and pocket silks… now thats a recipe for success! What I am trying to say is that he’s better than you, he’s better than all of us. And he’s going to prove that to you Sunday, May 8th, when he joins the hosts of Here’s the Thing Radio as a call-in guest.
Tompkins has graced both the big screen and the small screen over his impressive career, including two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials, a one hour special on both Comedy Central (“You Should Have Told Me”) and HBO (“Driven to Drink”), a hosting gig on Best Week Ever on VH1, and appearances in such movies as There Will be Blood, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny, and The Informant. His newest pride of joy and continual work in progress is his podcast, The Pod. F. Tompkast, which is an hour long monthly production complete with pre-taped sketches and other Paul F Tompkins related ramblings.
In 2008, Tompkins established what he calls the “Tompkins 300”, in which fans can form Facebook groups for specific cities that they would like him to perform, and, if the group reaches upwards of 300 serious members, Paul will arrange to perform in that city. The concept has proven very effective, with Paul successfully performing in many different cities since its inception. If you would like to see Paul F.
