Paul F. Tompkins

Paul F. Tompkins is from Philadelphia, PA, where he started performing stand-up comedy in 1986. In 1994, he moved to Hollywood, CA, where he met comic actor Jay Johnston, with whom he crafted the live sketch show THE SKATES. This led Paul to a stint as a writer and performer on HBO's MR. SHOW WITH BOB AND DAVID where he was nominated for an Emmy award for writing. Paul also wrote and starred in his own one-man show, DRIVEN TO DRINK, for HBO.

In 1999, Paul landed a small role in director Paul Thomas Anderson's critically acclaimed film MAGNOLIA. That same year, Paul F. Tompkins and Jay Johnston reunited to create and perform the science-fiction anthology parody PLAYGROUND OF THE ID at the HBO Workspace.

In 2000, Paul played the title role of "Peter" in the Warner Bros./NBC unaired pilot called THE PETER PRINCIPLE which led to Paul being cast as "Sullivan Pope" in the situation comedy DAG for NBC. His other acting credits include FRAISER, THE SKETCH SHOW on Fox, Dreamworks ANCHORMAN and New Line's soon to be released TENACIOUS D movie.

He is also really good in the movie THERE WILL BE BLOOD. It's not a very funny movie, except for that "I drink your milkshake" part which is creepily HILARIOUS, but Paul is also great.

Paul was a regular correspondant on VH1's hit show BEST WEEK EVER and then took over as the host right before VH1 screwed up and scrapped the show so that they could bring you more reality shows about quasi-celebs being terrible people.

Paul's stand-up has been featured on LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN, COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS…PAUL F. TOMPKINS and Paul garnered a WGA nomination for his work as a writer & correspondent on HBO's REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER. He is a regular guest on THE BEST SHOW ON WFMU with Tom Scharpling and COMEDY DEATHRAY RADIO hosted by Scott Aukerman.

His hilarious podcast, the POD F. TOMPKAST is presented monthly and can be downloaded on iTunes. You should download it and listen to it. It's good. And it will make you smarter and better looking.

In addition to acting and creating film/television projects, each month he appears in THE PAUL F. TOMPKINS SHOW to sold-out audiences at Largo in Hollywood - a live variety program that has Paul hosting the likes of Jack Black, Dave Foley, Andy Richter and Aimee Mann.
