TBS - Twix Presents : Just for laughs : Chicago

Paul F. Tompkins

Honestly, it might be just easier to name the projects Paul F. Tompkins hasn't been involved with over the past 20 years. Let's just say the man keeps busy. An internationally touring comedian, Paul's a fixture at both the Montreal and Chicago Just For Laughs festivals, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, San Francisco's Sketchfest, Austin's South By Southwest, Portland's Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Seattle's Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival. He recently complete a two-week, sold out run of his new stand up show, "Crying and Driving" at the Soho Theatre in London. Since making his television debut as a writer/performer on HBO's Mr. Show, Paul has guest starred on Frasier, The Sketch Show, Bob's Burgers, Adventure Time, Key & Peele, Up All Night, Last Man Standing, Raising Hope, Community, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Weeds, The Sarah Silverman Program, Lewis Black's The Root of All Evil, and hosted VH1's Best Week Ever. Paul's stand-up, meanwhile, has been showcased on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Comedy Central Presents Paul F. Tompkins, John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, and Real Time With Bill Maher. Did we mention he's also been in movies? Because he has. Lots of them, like Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, The Informant, Anchorman, Tenacious D and The Pick Of Destiny, and Tangled. Okay you know what? This is ridiculous. We knew we should've just listed everything he wasn't in. Paul was not in Star Wars, The Godfather, and Platoon. He's been in literally everything else. Ever. The End.
