The always hilarious Paul F. Tompkins is continuing his takeover of modern media with the world premiere of “Paul F. Tompkins: Crying and Driving,” on Comedy Central. The new event will premiere on Saturday, October 10 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Filmed at The Palace Theatre in Los Angeles, “Crying and Driving” covers everything from the time Tompkins experienced scream weeping, a few stand-out moments from his marriage, such as his memorable trip to The Magic Castle and how the mindless process of washing dishes can be frightening, and the difficulty involved in shooting a driving scene when he’s never obtained a driver’s license.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up will feature preview clips from the special, so you can prepare yourself for the best of Tompkins. Fans can follow Tompkins on Twitter at @PFTompkins, (and yes you should follow him because he’s equally as wonderful in Tweet form) and readers can tweet using the hashtag #CryDrivePFT to join the social chatter around the special.
“Paul F. Tompkins: Crying and Driving” will be available on October 11 on the Comedy Central App to fans that sign in via their cable or satellite provider. The Comedy Central App is available for iPad and iPhone on the App Store, Android on Google Play, Roku, Xbox One and Chromecast.
If you are somehow new to Tompkins, he is a comedian, actor, host and writer. Fans might now him best from his work on “Mr. Show with Bob and David,” “Real Time with Bill Maher” and “Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins.”
If you catch him on the “How Did this get Made” podcasts back when he guested on a few episodes, then you already know why he’s so charming.
Currently Tompkins hosts the Fusion talk show “No, You Shut Up!” and the Earwolf podcast “SPONTANEANATION with Paul F. Tompkins”. He also voices the role of “Mr. Peanutbutter” on the Netflix animated series “BoJack Horseman.”
If you are missing “BoJack Horseman,” that’s another bone I have to pick with you, but I’ll save that for another day. “Paul F. Tompkins: Crying and Driving” is executive produced by Tompkins, Neal Marshall and Marcus Raboy.
