FINALLY!

Can somebody who's seen him recently tell me if PFT has officially crossed over into the "hipster comics" category now? Because I sure get the feeling that that is the case.

Also, Paget Brewster? I only know her from the character that Andy Richter had a crush on on his ARCTU show.

he's been a part of the alt-comedy scene since the early '90s...

Paul F Tompkins ... what a square

If he includes Juggalo-bashing into his arsenal, I'm so there. His guest appearance in the Gathering of the Juggalos episode along with Tom Scharpling is a milestone in comedy gold.

Hmm. Weird responses.

He's been churning out great material for years. He doesn't tour the comedy circuit like most comics do - he's able to make a solid living doing collaborations like this or hosting his own monthly show. He has also appeared on just about every comedy podcast under the sun.

He was great when he worked with Scharpling, but those days are probably done - they had a big falling out about a year ago. I wish they'd patch it up, but I'm not holding my breath.

I don't really know what a "hipster comic" is, but Paul has his own style and his material doesn't really sound like anyone else. I think of him less like a comedian and more like an old time vaudevillian - he's a real entertainer, and is good at many things, not just the jokes.

Dude might dress a little questionably these days, but he's as funny as he ever was, and it's rare to see him in NYC so I'm very excited for this.
