Denied Access to Comedy Hero.

August 25, 2006

I became a huge fan of Paul F. Tompkins when I was out in L.A. making a record, and my old A&R guy at Warner Bros. would take me to the Monday night comedy thing at Largo on Fairfax.
I discovered he was a fan one night when I was glum and I looked to see who had “Added Me As a Favorite” and he was there, and I wrote him a freaked out note, and it turned out it was actually him and we had a fine moment of mutual fandom and logrolling.
And he’s playing UCB this Monday and sadly I must be in Connecticut, in the land of Manute Bol.
