If You Tweet It, He Will Come

Toronto comedian Bob Kerr

“Guys, we did it. He’s actually here!” Toronto comedian Bob Kerr exclaimed in front of a sold-out, standing room–only crowd while he hosted the first of two shows at the Rivoli starring Paul F. Tompkins. Tompkins, if you didn’t know already, is an enviably talented Los Angeles–based comic with a resume that includes decades of stand-up, TV (Mr. Show, Best Week Ever), and movies (There Will Be Blood, The Informant!), but before last month, he had never set foot in Hogtown. So, what brought him here? Twitter, Facebook, and Bob Kerr. Together, Kerr and Tompkins took advantage of all that is good in social media and started a trend that shows no signs of abating.

Back in August, Tompkins was in Atlanta, anxiously trying to publicize his weekend of gigs at the Laughing Skull Lounge (he was taping footage for his upcoming DVD, You Should Have Told Me). Despite his sizable following, he was having trouble filling the seventy-four-seat venue. He took to Twitter to get the word out, which fell on the ears and iPhone of Bob Kerr. According to Tompkins, Kerr did “his least favourite thing,” which was to send a tweet suggesting he come to another city (Toronto) while he was mired in promoting a pending show elsewhere. “So,” said Tompkins while being interviewed between shows for the TVA Podcast, “I replied, half-kiddingly, but also half-angrily: get three hundred people to say they’ll come see me, and then I’ll come to Toronto.” Within minutes, Kerr created a Facebook group called “I Wanna See Paul F. Tompkins in Toronto!” and in just one week, it boasted over three hundred earnest members.
True to his word, Tompkins started making plans for a Toronto show. He consulted his friend Martin Gero—Hollywood writer/producer and former Ryerson student—to select the perfect venue. Gero recommended the Rivoli for its historical significance (i.e. the birthplace of The Kids in the Hall). When it came to recruiting a middle act, some of Laugh Sabbath’s regular performers (Laugh Sabbath is the Riv’s weekly Sunday night comedy show) submitted their demos to Tompkins, and he chose quirky and hilarious Katie Crown. And to host, who better than the man who made it all happen?

Torontoist was lucky enough to attend the packed early show and chat with Kerr before the man of the hour arrived. After waiting almost three months, he was anxious to get these shows started and to finally meet his favourite comedian. “There’s nothing like performing in front of one of your all-time heroes to make you doubt everything you’ve ever written,” he told us while looking over his set list.
Tompkins arrived in a grey three-piece suit complete with matching tie and handkerchief, and thereby became undoubtedly the most dressed-up performer to ever enter the backroom at the Riv. After spending so much time listening to Tompkins on podcasts and reading his copious daily tweets, Kerr said it was like they had met before. “It was weird because I felt like I would never see him,” he told us. “Even when I knew he was coming to Toronto. It’s almost like he doesn’t actually exist. I’ve only known him from all these other mediums, mainly audio or reading. But when I saw him, it was like, ‘Paul, hi!’ He looked exactly like I thought he would look…it just felt like I knew him already. I actually relaxed when I saw him. Suddenly, I just wasn’t afraid of him…of being in the same room.”
Most don’t have the courage to engage their idols directly and invite them to their towns. Despite everything he did, Kerr maintains he’s no exception. “It’s not like me,” he insisted, “but, I think the fact that I wanted it to happen so bad overtook my own personal hesitations. I wanted to see him face-to-face…shake his hand and talk to him.”

Signed Paul F. Tompkins CD
Tompkins’s Impersonal CD, autographed to Kerr: “Dear Bob: Thank you so much for making this happen. You should seriously consider starting a cult. Gratefully, Paul.”


Needless to say, the shows were fantastic and very well-received because the room was full of true fans—people who cared enough to lobby to get him to Toronto. In between shows, Tompkins said on the TVA Podcast, “As soon as I walked out on that stage, I felt like I had been there before. There was something really magical about it…it was great. I would say this is one of my all-time favourite nights of my career.”
But the story didn’t end there. Within a few weeks of his return home to LA, dozens of new Facebook groups popped up asking for the very same thing. At last count, there were thirty-two additional groups, the most enthusiastic being Halifax who raised their three hundred in just three days (PFT is currently scouting venues for this show). The most far-flung of the lot is a group from Malmö, Sweden, called “Paul F. Tompkins till Malmö!”
In the midst of all this, Tompkins hasn’t missed a beat—he is embracing this new way of booking (he wrote a how-to blog post and created the #tompkins300 hashtag on Twitter to keep up with everyone’s efforts). With thirty-two cities on the list and growing, this could turn into an international tour.
And how does Kerr feel about starting this trend with Tompkins? “I feel spectacular,” he told us. “It’s something that me and Paul did together, which makes me feel amazing because Paul’s a hero of mine. And now that it’s picking up and it’s a possible career vehicle for him to travel around and know that people are actually excited in these different cities. How great is that for Paul, or for any comic?”
If you missed Paul F. Tompkins when he was here, many nearby cities are campaigning for shows (e.g. Detroit, Montreal, Boston, Chicago). Consult the #tompkins300 hashtag on Twitter or search for “Paul F. Tompkins” in Facebook. If you would like to see Bob Kerr, the man who lit this fire, he is middling for another LA comedian, Todd Barry, at the Comedy Bar this Saturday, November 21 at 8 p.m.

    I have never bought an action figure for myself, but the doll I had as a kid was some sort of ca. 1969 astronaut guy, who came with (iirc) an lunar landing device. Large, as the 1960s G. I. Joes and Barbies were.

    Some very pleasant singing…I’m perhaps a bit self-satisfied that I had no idea what the PERFECT STRANGERS theme was, though all the others were at least slightly familiar. Of course, pay cable series and those on PBS still have time for theme music…most of the time…

  • Comment by Frank — August 23, 2014 @ 9:58 pm

    I absolutely loved when you were singing the theme songs.
    It brought me so much joy. If I wasn’t at work I would have sung along.
    Keep up the great work. You two are awesome.

  • Comment by Frank — August 23, 2014 @ 10:58 pm

    My first action figure was a G.I. Joe called Shipwreck. It came with a little parrot. I thought it was so cool until I showed it to my friends, and they made fun of me. This happened to me a lot. Thinking that I was cool, then finding out that other people did not agree. *Sigh* I’m not sure that has changed.

  • Comment by Erinbeth — August 25, 2014 @ 2:26 pm

    My first action figure was of The British Bulldog the WWF wrestler. I was in Junior High and I’m sure there was a boy involved somehow. I did, however keep my little action figure for many years even after that boy was long gone. It is long gone now, but I think about it every once in awhile and chuckle to myself.

  • Comment by Allen P. Williams — August 25, 2014 @ 5:28 pm

    Definitely Ghostbusters! I don’t remember which one, specifically, was first but I definitely had all of them.

  • Comment by tomas — August 27, 2014 @ 2:11 pm

    the first action figure i remember getting was the clown that John Leguizamo played in the spawn movie. it was super creepy and gross i loved it. i re watched the movie its pretty rough, but they put out a great line of toys for it.

  • Comment by FellHarbor — June 22, 2016 @ 1:49 pm

    The first action figure I asked for specifically as a gift was Catra from She-Ra (with her horse, Storm). And the first action figures I saved up for to buy myself were the Disney’s Gargoyles toys. Had to have them all!

    I remember collecting the Land Before Time puppets with my cousins. I’m not sure what happened, exactly, but somehow I ended up with all of them in my possession… 😛

    Tompkins met actor Jay Johnston in L.A. through their mutual friend, actor and director Adam McKay.[16] McKay and Tompkins had become friends in Philadelphia, where they had both started to perform stand-up at around the same time.[5][17] McKay later moved to Chicago and met Johnston; Johnston moved to L.A. at around the same time as Tompkins and McKay introduced the two.[5] Tompkins and Johnston went on to create a live sketch comedy show called "The Skates" that was seen by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross and helped get them hired to work on Mr. Show with Bob and David in 1996.[5][10][13]

    Live comedic performance[edit]

    Tompkins's comedy career has included stand-up, sketch comedy and a variety of other live performances.

    Tompkins stand-up comedy performances are of a storytelling and observationalist style.[4][18][19][20] His shows often consist of extended riffs and long anecdotes.[3][6] Tompkins deals with topics of the bizarre and the absurd[3][4]—such as a rant about peanut brittle,[6][21] a discussion about cake versus pie,[21] and smashed coins[6]—in addition to recounting stories about his own life experiences and family.[3][17][18][21] His comedic style has been described as alternative comedy;[10][21] Tompkins has stated that he is not bothered by the label and that he likes the term.[23]

    Tompkins is known for his style of dress during his live comedic performances, always performing in suit and tie,[6][17] sometimes in pinstripes and with a bowtie;[18][24] his look has been described by some in the press as "dapper".[6][18][21][25] Tompkins has described his look as "foppish" and "just this side of Cedric the Entertainer."[21]

    Tompkins is based in Los Angeles and performs regularly in the city.[17] Since 2002 he has performed a monthly show called The Paul F. Tompkins Show at Largo, an L.A. nightclub and cabaret.[3][26][27] His show has featured such guests such as Fiona Apple, Jack Black, Dave Foley, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Aimee Mann, and Weird Al Yankovic.[3] Since its inception in 2005, Tompkins has taken part in the Thrilling Adventure Hour, a staged production in the style of old-time radio that is also held monthly at Largo.[28][29][30] The show began podcasting in January 2011; in October of that same year the show's podcasts moved to the Nerdist Industries podcast network created by Chris Hardwick.[31] Tompkins is a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (UCB) Los Angeles.[32] His comedy album "Impersonal" was recorded live at the UCB Theatre.[33] He also performs monthly at the "Dead Authors" show at UCB Theatre in support of the nonprofit organization 826LA;[34][35] Tompkins plays the role of H.G. Wells who serves as the host of the show.[34]

    Tompkins has toured in the US and Canada[36] and prefers to perform in independent venues, rather than conventional comedy clubs.[37][38] Starting in 2009 he embarked on his "Tompkins 300" tour;[9][25][36] Tompkins had been preparing for his one-hour Comedy Central special You Should Have Told Me at the Laughing Skull Lounge theatre in Atlanta, Georgia—a small theatre that seats about 74 people.[9][25][39] In order to fill the seats for the recording of his special, Tompkins required about 280 people in the audience over the course of four nights for the recording of his show.[9][25][38] Tompkins decided to announce on Twitter that he needed 300 people to fill the seats each night;[9][25][38] Bob Kerr, a Canadian comedian, saw the Twitter post and asked if Tompkins would like to perform in Toronto.[9][25][38] Tompkins advised Kerr that if he was able to get 300 people to state that they would definitely see his show he would come to Toronto.[9][25][38] Kerr then started a Facebook group called "I Wanna See Paul F. Tompkins in Toronto" and managed to get 300 people to join.[9][25][38] In October of that same year Tompkins performed at The Rivoli theatre in Toronto,[9][38] the same theatre in which the sketch comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall got their start.[25][40] Facebook groups were subsequently started in other North American cities[25] and in 2010 he stated that he had stopped promoting his shows on the radio.[41] In 2011 he said that the Facebook 300 groups had become his main method of booking comedy shows.[3]

    Tompkins wrote and performed in his one-man show, Driven to Drink which aired on HBO in 1998.[4][15] He appeared on 6 episodes of Late Night with Conan O'Brien between 1998 and 2008[9][15] as well as two episodes of Conan in 2011 and 2012. He has recorded three comedy albums: Impersonal in 2007,[5][12][33]Freak Wharf in 2009, and Laboring Under Delusions in 2012.[35] His stand-up appearances on the Comedy Central network include being featured in episodes of Comedy Central Presents in 2003 and 2007,[35] hosting an episode of Live at Gotham in 2009,[35] performing on John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show in 2010,[35] and recording two original one-hour comedy specials—You Should Have Told Me which aired in 2010[21][42] and Paul F. Tompkins: Laboring Under Delusions in 2012.[21][42][43] He also appeared in the RiffTrax live broadcast of House on Haunted Hill.

    Acting and writing[edit]

    Tompkins wrote for and performed on Mr. Show with Bob and David from 1995 to 1998; the show's writers, including Tompkins, were nominated for an Emmy Award in 1998 for "Outstanding Writing for a Variety or Music Program".[4]

    Tompkins's work with Mr. Show's creators Bob Odenkirk and David Cross also led to his recurring role on the Tenacious D TV series.[10][17] Tompkins played the character of a nightclub manager who is duped into reading Tenacious D's ridiculous introductions during their open mic performances.[10] He revived the role in the comedic band's film Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny released in 2006.

    Longtime friend Adam McKay consulted Tompkins regarding the screenplay for Talladega Nights.[10] Tompkins also played the MC of a cat show in McKay's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.[15][17][44]

    Tompkins has appeared on television programs including NewsRadio, Frasier, Weeds, The Sarah Silverman Program, Pushing Daisies, Community, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.[3][5][6][9] Tompkins played the role of Prescott in Paul Thomas Anderson's film There Will Be Blood (2007);[5][6] Anderson had previously cast Tompkins in a small role in the 1999 film Magnolia after watching Tompkins perform at Largo.[5][6][15] Tompkins also played FBI Agent Anthony D’Angelo in Steven Soderbergh's The Informant! (2009).[9] He has a recurring role in the Canadian TV series The L.A. Complex as a fictionalized version of himself. He also appeared in the music video for Nick Lowe's song "Stoplight Roses" and in the Ted Leo and the Pharmacists song "Bottled In Cork". Tompkins wrote for Real Time with Bill Maher in 2003 and 2009, in addition to being a show correspondent in the show's first season.[15][17] In 2011 Tompkins was asked to write humorous recaps of American Idol episodes for New York magazine's online blog Vulture.[3][45][46]

    Tompkins has expressed in interviews that he dislikes writing (particularly writing for others), preferring instead to perform in front of a camera.[10][12]

    Voice acting[edit]

    Tompkins has done voice work for many animated television series including Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, King of the Hill, and Bob's Burgers, in which he voices the recurring character Randy. He lent his voice to a character in an unaired 2007 episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force titled "Boston" that was supposed to be the premiere episode of the show's fifth season, but it was pulled by Turner Broadcasting System to avoid further controversy surrounding the 2007 Boston bomb scare.[47] Tompkins later appeared in an episode during the show's 7th season. He was also the voice of one of the thugs in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 2010 computer animated film Tangled. Tompkins was the voice of Benton Criswell, a character in MTV series Super Adventure Team which featured marionettes in the style of the 1960s British series Thunderbirds; the role was credited under the stage name Francis Mt. Pleasant. He was the voice of a puppet in ads for the Ford Focus.[42] Tompkins played Mr. Peanutbutter in the 2014 Netflix original animated series BoJack Horseman. Tompkins voices the recurring character, Gladstone Gander, in the reboot series of DuckTales. In 2020 he voiced Dr. Migleemo, a therapist aboard the USS Cerritos in the CBS All Access animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks.[48][49]

    Political and social commentary[edit]

    Tompkins has appeared on several television programs devoted to discussing politics, popular culture and current events; however, he says he does not consider himself to be a political comic.[50]

    Tompkins was a contributor to the "Us People's Weekly Entertainment" segment of The Daily Show in 1998.[9][17] In 2003 he was a writer and correspondent for Real Time with Bill Maher in the show's first season[15][17] and wrote again for the show in 2009. He appeared on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn in 2004.[35] In 2004 he also became a pop culture analyst on VH1's Best Week Ever;[1][51] in 2008 the show was retooled and relaunched as Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins with Tompkins as host.[1][6][51] From 2006 to 2008 he was a regular guest on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.[5][6][12] In 2008 he appeared on Lewis Black's Root of All Evil[35][52] and took part in a panel on Larry King Live in an episode titled "Politics & Humor".

    Tompkins has appeared in documentaries such as Jamie Kennedy's Heckler (2007) and Doug Benson's Super High Me (2007). He also appeared in The Bitter Buddha (2013), a documentary about the career of actor and comedian Eddie Pepitone.[53][54]

    Tompkins later became the host of a discussion show called No, You Shut Up! by The Jim Henson Company under its Henson Alternative banner.

    Podcasts, webcasts and radio[edit]

    In 2010, Tompkins launched his podcast called The Pod F. Tompkast.[35][55] The podcast was a mixture of Tompkins discussing various topics, clips from his live show at Largo, and segments where Tompkins voices a variety of celebrities speaking with one another.[7][35][56][57] Comedian Jen Kirkman was a regular contributor on the show.[7][56] The podcast ended in 2012.

    The Thrilling Adventure Hour comedy show at Largo began podcasting in January 2011; in October of that same year the show's podcasts moved to the Nerdist Industries podcast network created by Chris Hardwick.[31] The show ended in 2015.

    Dead Authors, a live show that Tompkins hosts at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles, also began podcasting in September 2011.[58]

    In May 2012 Tompkins started a weekly web series called Speakeasy. Hosted by the Break Media site MadeMan.com, the series features Tompkins interviewing various guests in the entertainment industry, such as Ty Burrell, Nathan Fillion, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Hardwick, Oscar Nunez, Weird Al Yankovic, and Alison Brie.[59][60][61] The interviews are conducted as casual conversations between Tompkins and his guests over cocktails at various bars in the L.A. area.[59][60][61]

    Tompkins has appeared well over 200 times as a guest, and occasionally as a guest host, on Comedy Bang! Bang! (formerly Comedy Death-Ray Radio),[5][25] a weekly audio podcast hosted by Scott Aukerman, a comedian who also wrote for Mr. Show with Bob and David.[62][63] The show's format mixes conversation between the host and guests, and usually includes improv games. Some guests play characters or impersonate certain celebrities, usually for the entirety of the episode; Paul F. Tompkins has impersonated celebrities such as rapper Ice-T, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Buddy Valastro from the reality television series Cake Boss.

    In addition to Aukerman's Comedy Bang! Bang!, Tompkins has appeared on the podcasts of other fellow comedians such as WTF with Marc Maron,Jimmy Pardo's Never Not Funny,[23]Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo's Ronna and Beverly podcast, and the Superego podcast with Jeremy Carter, Matt Gourley, and Mark McConville.[64] Tompkins has also been a regular guest on the radio show and podcast The Best Show on WFMU with Tom Scharpling.[23]

    In 2015, Tompkins created his own podcast on the Earwolf podcast network called Spontaneanation with Paul F. Tompkins. This podcast is similar to the Pod F. Tompkast; however, Spontaneanation is fully improvised and in-the-moment, as opposed to the Tompkast, which was highly produced. Spontaneanation begins with an improvised monologue, accompanied on piano by Eban Schletter, much like the Pod F. Tompkast. The next segment is an interview with one of Tompkins's famous friends. The final segment is one long improvised story performed by Paul and guest improvisers, based on ideas discussed in the interview segment. The podcast ended in 2019.

    Since 2019, Tompkins has cohosted, with Nicole Parker, The Neighborhood Listen on Stitcher Premium. Along with Tawny Newsome, he also hosts The Pod Directive, the official Star Trek podcast, which launched in September 2020.

    In March of 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Paul started a weekly podcast with his wife, Janie Haddad Tompkins, called Stay F. Homekins.[65] The first season ran for 41 episodes throughout the rest of 2020, and season two started in January of 2021.[66]

    Personal life[edit]

    Tompkins is married to actress Janie Haddad Tompkins.[67]

    In 2017, Tompkins stated on Twitter that he was once a Catholic, but later went on to become an atheist.[68]

    news

    By Kaori Furue

    Toronto comedian Bob Kerr

    “Guys, we did it. He’s actually here!” Toronto comedian Bob Kerr exclaimed in front of a sold-out, standing room–only crowd while he hosted the first of two shows at the Rivoli starring Paul F. Tompkins. Tompkins, if you didn’t know already, is an enviably talented Los Angeles–based comic with a resume that includes decades of stand-up, TV (Mr. Show, Best Week Ever), and movies (There Will Be Blood, The Informant!), but before last month, he had never set foot in Hogtown. So, what brought him here? Twitter, Facebook, and Bob Kerr. Together, Kerr and Tompkins took advantage of all that is good in social media and started a trend that shows no signs of abating.

    Back in August, Tompkins was in Atlanta, anxiously trying to publicize his weekend of gigs at the Laughing Skull Lounge (he was taping footage for his upcoming DVD, You Should Have Told Me). Despite his sizable following, he was having trouble filling the seventy-four-seat venue. He took to Twitter to get the word out, which fell on the ears and iPhone of Bob Kerr. According to Tompkins, Kerr did “his least favourite thing,” which was to send a tweet suggesting he come to another city (Toronto) while he was mired in promoting a pending show elsewhere. “So,” said Tompkins while being interviewed between shows for the TVA Podcast, “I replied, half-kiddingly, but also half-angrily: get three hundred people to say they’ll come see me, and then I’ll come to Toronto.” Within minutes, Kerr created a Facebook group called “I Wanna See Paul F. Tompkins in Toronto!” and in just one week, it boasted over three hundred earnest members.
    True to his word, Tompkins started making plans for a Toronto show. He consulted his friend Martin Gero—Hollywood writer/producer and former Ryerson student—to select the perfect venue. Gero recommended the Rivoli for its historical significance (i.e. the birthplace of The Kids in the Hall). When it came to recruiting a middle act, some of Laugh Sabbath’s regular performers (Laugh Sabbath is the Riv’s weekly Sunday night comedy show) submitted their demos to Tompkins, and he chose quirky and hilarious Katie Crown. And to host, who better than the man who made it all happen?

    Torontoist was lucky enough to attend the packed early show and chat with Kerr before the man of the hour arrived. After waiting almost three months, he was anxious to get these shows started and to finally meet his favourite comedian. “There’s nothing like performing in front of one of your all-time heroes to make you doubt everything you’ve ever written,” he told us while looking over his set list.
    Tompkins arrived in a grey three-piece suit complete with matching tie and handkerchief, and thereby became undoubtedly the most dressed-up performer to ever enter the backroom at the Riv. After spending so much time listening to Tompkins on podcasts and reading his copious daily tweets, Kerr said it was like they had met before. “It was weird because I felt like I would never see him,” he told us. “Even when I knew he was coming to Toronto. It’s almost like he doesn’t actually exist. I’ve only known him from all these other mediums, mainly audio or reading. But when I saw him, it was like, ‘Paul, hi!’ He looked exactly like I thought he would look…it just felt like I knew him already. I actually relaxed when I saw him. Suddenly, I just wasn’t afraid of him…of being in the same room.”
    Most don’t have the courage to engage their idols directly and invite them to their towns. Despite everything he did, Kerr maintains he’s no exception. “It’s not like me,” he insisted, “but, I think the fact that I wanted it to happen so bad overtook my own personal hesitations. I wanted to see him face-to-face…shake his hand and talk to him.”

    Signed Paul F. Tompkins CD
    Tompkins’s Impersonal CD, autographed to Kerr: “Dear Bob: Thank you so much for making this happen. You should seriously consider starting a cult. Gratefully, Paul.”


    Needless to say, the shows were fantastic and very well-received because the room was full of true fans—people who cared enough to lobby to get him to Toronto. In between shows, Tompkins said on the TVA Podcast, “As soon as I walked out on that stage, I felt like I had been there before. There was something really magical about it…it was great. I would say this is one of my all-time favourite nights of my career.”
    But the story didn’t end there. Within a few weeks of his return home to LA, dozens of new Facebook groups popped up asking for the very same thing. At last count, there were thirty-two additional groups, the most enthusiastic being Halifax who raised their three hundred in just three days (PFT is currently scouting venues for this show). The most far-flung of the lot is a group from Malmö, Sweden, called “Paul F. Tompkins till Malmö!”
    In the midst of all this, Tompkins hasn’t missed a beat—he is embracing this new way of booking (he wrote a how-to blog post and created the #tompkins300 hashtag on Twitter to keep up with everyone’s efforts). With thirty-two cities on the list and growing, this could turn into an international tour.
    And how does Kerr feel about starting this trend with Tompkins? “I feel spectacular,” he told us. “It’s something that me and Paul did together, which makes me feel amazing because Paul’s a hero of mine. And now that it’s picking up and it’s a possible career vehicle for him to travel around and know that people are actually excited in these different cities. How great is that for Paul, or for any comic?”
    If you missed Paul F. Tompkins when he was here, many nearby cities are campaigning for shows (e.g. Detroit, Montreal, Boston, Chicago). Consult the #tompkins300 hashtag on Twitter or search for “Paul F. Tompkins” in Facebook. If you would like to see Bob Kerr, the man who lit this fire, he is middling for another LA comedian, Todd Barry, at the Comedy Bar paul f tompkins detroit Saturday, November 21 at 8 p.m.

    I have never bought an action figure for myself, but the doll I had as a kid was some sort of ca. 1969 astronaut guy, who came with (iirc) an lunar landing device. Large, as the 1960s G. I. Joes and Barbies were.

    Some very pleasant singing…I’m perhaps a bit self-satisfied that I had no idea what the PERFECT STRANGERS theme was, though all the others were at least slightly familiar. Of course, pay cable series and those on PBS still have time for theme music…most of the time…

    I absolutely loved when you were singing the theme songs.
    It brought me so much joy. If I wasn’t at work I would have sung along.
    Keep up the great work. You two are awesome.

    My first action figure was a G.I. Joe called Shipwreck. It came with a little parrot. I thought it was so cool until I showed it to my friends, and they made fun of me. This happened to me a lot. Thinking that I was cool, then finding out that other people did not agree. *Sigh* I’m not sure that has changed.

    My first action figure was of The British Bulldog the WWF wrestler. I was in Junior High and I’m sure there was a boy involved somehow. I did, however keep my little action figure for many years even after that boy was long gone. It is long gone now, but I think about it every once physical map of america awhile and chuckle to myself.

    Definitely Ghostbusters! I don’t remember which one, specifically, was first but I definitely had all of them.

    the first action figure i remember getting was the clown that John Leguizamo played in the spawn movie. it was super creepy and gross i loved it. i re watched the movie its pretty rough, but they put out a great line of toys for it.

    The first action figure I asked for specifically as a gift was Catra from She-Ra (with her horse, Storm). And the first action figures I saved up for to buy myself were the Disney’s Gargoyles toys. Had to have them all!

    I remember collecting the Land Before Time puppets with my cousins. I’m not sure what happened, exactly, but somehow I ended up with all of them in my possession… 😛
