It’s time for another round of Funny Human of the Week! Let’s meet another comedian whose got just extremely good jokes. Sometimes we talk about up-and-coming comics who are making waves “”””on the scene”””” and sometimes we take some time to appreciate the work of folks who have been out there doing it for a bit longer, holding it down and just doing a great job, you know? This week we’re doing the latter, taking a look at the work of the extremely good comic Tom Papa. Let’s start by enjoying this NASA-themed clip from our friend Tom!
Here’s a nice lil panel segment Tom did last year on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he talks about his book, Your Dad Stole My Rake, among other things! Tom and Stephen have a nice rapport going. They talk about Father’s Day!
Speaking of fatherhood, let’s next watch an extended clip from Tom’s appearance on Comedy Central’s storytelling show This Is Not Happening.
Tom is the kind of comic who is equally at home on the gentle, very nice NPR show Live From Here, and on the Joe Rogan Podcast. He’s just that versatile! Let’s watch Tom on Live From Here, reading an excerpt from Your Dad Stole My Rake!
On our way out, we can enjoy this longform interview Tom did with our old pal Marc Maron, on the WTF Podcast, recorded late last year!
