Before achieving success as a comedian, actor, and writer, Paul F. 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.
