Tom Papa at Landmark on Main Street

John Mitty Friday, December 16, 2016

Tom Papa brings his sharply observational and quick-witted standup to the Jeanne Rimsky Theater for one night only on Friday, January 13.  With more than 20 years as a stand-up comedian, Tom Papa is one of the top comedic voices in the country finding success in film, television and radio as well as on the live stage.

Papa’s 2012 Comedy Central special, Live in New York City, was directed by Rob Zombie and featured sharp-witted anecdotes about everything from Facebook to marriage.  Excite! online called it “masterful” and “provocative.”

He is host of the hit podcast and SiriusXM show, Come to Papa, a weekly, hour-long show that explores the funny side of life, occasionally featuring his good friends and fellow comic artists Mel Brooks and Jerry Seinfeld.

Several times a year in New York and Los Angeles, Tom hosts a live Come To Papa scripted radio play that is recorded live for the podcast and SiriusXM show.  With residencies at Largo in Los Angeles and The Village Underground in NYC, Tom Papa writes the script for each live radio show and casts top actors and comedians to play the roles or perform stand-up, all backed by a live band. Past performers have included Matt Damon, Sarah Silverman, Joel McHale, Bill Burr, Jim Gaffigan, John Mullaney, Kevin Nealon, Kevin Pollack and many more.

The New Jersey born-and-raised comedian has guest starred on The Jim Gaffigan Show on TV Land, on Colin Quinn’s web series, Cop Show, and in two episodes of Steven Soderbergh’s Cinemax series, The Knick. He appears in Chris Rock’s film, Top Five, in Analyze That, opposite Robert DeNiro, and alongside Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in the HBO film, Behind the Candelabra which was directed by Steven Soderbergh and won 11 Emmys. He starred opposite Matt Damon in the Steven Soderbergh film, The Informant, and starred opposite Paul Giamatti in Rob Zombie’s animated feature, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, as the voice of El Superbeasto.

Tom Papa was also seen in the hit Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer. Personally chosen by Jerry Seinfeld, he hosted the NBC series, The Marriage Ref, which ran for two seasons.  He had a recurring role opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the CBS series, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and starred in his own NBC series, Come to Papa.

Tickets for Tom Papa are available through Landmark’s Box Office, 516-767-6444 and online at landmarkonmainstreet.org

All seats $35 (Friends $30).
