Paul F. Tompkins
The very funny Paul F. Tompkins returned to Comedy Central last month with a new one hour stand-up special entitled Laboring Under Delusions. The uncensored DVD version of Laboring Under Delusions is available now and it contains 30 minutes of content not seen during the original television broadcast.
Before achieving success as a comedian, actor, and writer, Tompkins toiled in the ranks of the common working man, and he shares some of his incredible experiences in this all-new special. Using his trademark storytelling style, Tompkins recounts his stint as a disgruntled hat salesman, his evolution into a sticky-fingered video store clerk, and how hosting VH1’s “Best Week Ever” led to inadvertently donning women’s undergarments. With his fist raised high, Tompkins delivers a rousing hour of comedy to a raucous audience at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA.
The Paul F. Tompkins Laboring Under Delusions extended and uncensored DVD with 30 minutes of material not seen in broadcast will be released on April 24 by Comedy Central Entertainment. The bonus features include: “Director’s Commentary by a Director,” a series of musings on the full special from Tompkins, impersonating a famous director; an additional 16 minutes of show in the form of “Danny Boy Encore;” and “The Pod F. Tompkast: Episode 16 – Behind the Scenes,” featuring insights into the voicing of The Great Undiscovered Project: Part 16 and podcast guest Gillian Jacobs (Community). The extended and uncensored version of Laboring Under Delusions will be available for download on April 24th at all major digital outlets.
