Nerdy and awesome:

Thanks Dr. Itsas.

GODDAMIT! This looked like a fun show with limitless possibilities. I am bummed it didn’t make it past the pilot.

Well-deserved!

Money shot:

Though he has been a big shot in stand-up circles for more than a decade, he is not a household name to general audiences, despite appearing on the HBO cult favorite “Mr. Show With Bob and David” in the 1990s and, more recently, on “The Sarah Silverman Program” on Comedy Central, which also showed several of his stand-up specials. “I’m known as the guy who wears the suits, because the guy named Paul with the gap in his teeth was not specific enough,” he said, referring to his fellow commentator, the less-nattily-dressed comedian Paul Scheer. Off screen, Mr. Tompkins’s humor is also more conceptual. Asked what his middle initial stands for, he said, “Fascism. It’s a family name.” (It’s actually Francis.)

Hopefully this means Paul will come down to Philly more often.
