Early life

Paul Francis Tompkins was born on September 12, 1968 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[2] His father was a railway worker, and his mother was a receptionist.[4] He began doing stand-up comedy in 1986, often with comedy partner Rick Roman.[2][5] He attended college at Temple University until deciding to drop out in 1994, moving to Los Angeles.[2] When asked what other jobs he had to supplement his comedy career, Tompkins responded: "When I first moved to Los Angeles [California] I worked at a place that did movie surveys over the phone. It was awful. And I think the company was actually hired by the movie studios as a crude form of advertising. The surveys were merely a stalking horse-- the real goal was to say the names of the movies over and over and over again to get them in people's heads."[6]

Career

He then acted on the HBO show Mr. Show with Bob and David, serving as a staff writer for the second and third seasons. He was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1998 for his writing on the show.[2] He was also nominated for a Writers' Guild of America Award for his work on Real Time with Bill Maher.[2] He has also served as a commentator on VH1's Best Week Ever and has released the comedy albums Impersonal and Freak Wharf.[2][7]
