Our 2021 Headliner

Tom Papa

Tom Papa is funny. Really funny! So funny that The Boston Globe called him “Really funny!”.

His uncanny ability to create material that is both unique and universal has earned him smash-hit appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and landed him the coveted job of opening for Jerry Seinfeld on tour for three years. He was also star, writer and producer of his own NBC sitcom Come to Papa giving him the rare opportunity to be himself while he played himself being himself on TV. Very few people can say that (literally). Tom has appeared twice at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.

Tom says, “I’m in the lucky position of being able to make people laugh for a living.” Papa has appeared in the films Analyze That and Comedian and lent his voiceover talent to the DreamWorks animated feature Bee Movie. Tom co-wrote the animated movie The Haunted World of El Superbeasto with Rob Zombie. He also played the title character, a professional wrestler/superhero.

Tom has recorded four stand-up specials: Freaked Out, Live in New York City, Human Mule and You’re Doing Great! All his specials stream on Hulu, Amazon and Netflix.

When not touring the country, Tom lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two daughters, a cat and dog, spending most of his time writing and baking bread.
