Editorial Reviews

When it comes to odd jobs, Paul F. Tompkins has experienced them all, stand-up comedian included. In this extended and uncensored stand-up special. Paul (and his impressive mustache) takes us on a hilarious tour of his varied career. Relive his glory days as an employee at a Beta-only video store, a hat shop salesman catering to tourists looking for "king hats," an actor with an improbable cameo in an epic film, and a quip-producing regular on Best Week Ever. Paul F.Tompkins' prolific comedy career includes over a 100 television and film credits - Mr. Show with Bob and Dave, Tenacious D, The Sarah Silverman Show, and Best Week Ever to name a few. Regular guest appearances on shows like Late Night with Conan O'Brien and a busy touring schedule keeps his material fresh and topical. In this extended and uncensored stand-up special Paul takes you on a hilarious tour of the many jobs he's had - some glamorous, many. not so much. It's a must own for all comedy fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best April 24, 2012
Format:DVD
Paul F. Tompkins is a national treasure and I am honored to have the privilege of purchasing this very funny comedy special. Anything that emerges from his brain is worth purchasing; for even many times more than this tiny price.

5.0 out of 5 stars PFT told me to write this September 21, 2012

This DVD is fun and silly. This guy's not trying to hurt no one. Give it a viewing and if you don't like it, may we part ways as friends.

P.S. - CAKE BOSS!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's so great, so get this you monster April 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is so well done. Paul, is in amazing, hilarious form. If you aren't a fan yet, this special will make you one.

Tremendous comedy value for the price. The special was longer than I was expecting it to be, in the best way. It's that feeling of being with your funniest friend and you say "I feel like I've been laughing forever."

The "Special Features" are hilarious as well and not at all "tacked on". The encore especially is evidence of how naturally funny Paul is.

If you are a fan of him from the Pod F. Tompkast, Comedy Bang Bang, Doug Loves Movies, The Best Show on WFMU, then what am I saying? You already know and should have bought this.

Is it clear that a Paul F. Tompkins fan wrote this? Good, but you should be too. I don't intend that in a mean way. He's just really great, smart and funny and it would be a shame if you missed out.

Sincerest best to you stranger!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy that's passionate June 27, 2012
By Camden
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Paul F. Tompkins is one of the strongest comedians of our day. I've always said the best comedians are the ones who know how to get personal, and Tompkins bases his entire stand-up act around stories from his life, particularly around mistakes and other tales of desperation. If you only saw this special when it aired on Comedy Central, GET THIS DVD! Not only is it TWICE as long as when it aired, but it includes a 10-minute encore with Eban Schletter on piano (the encore is almost entirely improvised, as is one of Tompkins' specialties) and an excellent behind-the-scenes peak at the making of Tompkins' excellent podcast, the Pod F. Tompkast. If you're an enthusiast for comedy, this is a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Call it: "Laboring Above the Rest" May 15, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Paul F. Tompkins! What more can you say? Much more, actually. His standard of wit, wonder, writ, and rambling forego even the most keen sense of humour. He is commanding. This delicious laughcicle is "nothing more" than what you'd expect from the man himself, until it is! This is a must see! Continue to read this no longer! Your mind has been made up. Race to the nearest online retailer and make this a day like no other, filled with exceptional purchases. Hurry! Before it is too late!

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul F. Tompkins Kills Everyone! November 25, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Such a sophisticated style of comedy... that still doesn't spare on silliness. His delivery is one of a kind. The bonus material with the piano is just too good to miss. He can riff like no other! A must have for any PFT fan. or anyone who likes Patton Oswalt or Louis CK. (similar storytelling comics)

PFT is simply the funniest comedian of our age. This is a small sampling of his incredible work, worth every minute.

4.0 out of 5 stars I mean, PFT is my jam... May 27, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
He's really, really funny. I am happy to support him by paying for his special and not finding it online. While I appreciate his improvisational style found on podcasts like Comedy Bang Bang more, I laughed a lot at this special.

Why not 5 stars? Maybe this was my own naivety, but I was hoping that this download purchase would come with some of the extra features, especially the encore where he sings "Danny Boy", and perhaps even his commentary. So that was disappointing, but probably my fault.
