Paul F. Tompkins’ debut album! In a hysterical set recorded live at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles, Paul F. Tompkins delivers forty-five minutes of classic material culled from a stand-up career spanning two decades. With fan favorites such as “Elegant Balloons” and “Peanut Brittle,” Paul delicately treads the line between the intellectual and the absurd, striking a highbrow yet playful connection with his audience. Whether he’s explaining how jazz is a “genre of music that is defying you to like it” or regaling us with a chilling tale about a very strange stromboli, Paul leaves little room to wonder why he is one of the most beloved performers working today.
