Sinus Sister has a brush with comic genius
Paul F. Tompkins is known as a comic’s comic [insert eye roll]. That’s one of those compliments bestowed on talented people who don’t care what anyone thinks anyway. Tompkins didn’t cop to being a comic’s comic, but he let me take this photo anyway—mostly because his tie matched the logo.
Off stage, his chit chat is irrepressible. When he’s yucking it up with buddy Greg Proops, he’s unstoppable. Tompkins breezed through Just For Laughs, earning new fans and cementing his reputation as the king of podcasts.
For a full blast of his quirkiness, check out Pod F Tompkast on his blog. The latest podcast, #12, is about Hurt Feelings, Ominous Portents, and Efforts Britishly Redoubled, Chit-Chat Challenge and Little Surfer Southie. My favourite podcast is Episode #9, with guest stars John Hamm and Maya Rudolph.
Sinus Sister celebrity hobnobs.
Podcasting sensation Greg Proops treated audiences to a live taping of his show The Smartest Man in the World at Just for Laughs. Later, he moderated an industry conference on podcasting. Pretty soon, the talk got around to money. Nobody knew how to monetize their podcasts, but everyone was really, really funny about being poor.
