With more than 20 years as a stand-up, Tom Papa is one of the top comedic voices in the country. In addition to his mastery of the stage, he’s found success in a variety of creative pursuits including as an actor and host in film and television, contributing writer for The New Yorker, author of three books, and popular podcast and radio host. He’s also a sought-after panelist (and occasional guest host) for NPR’s comedy news quiz, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me.
Papa has five highly rated stand-up specials to his credit including his most recent Netflix special, What A Day! which was filmed at the iconic Wilbur Theatre in Boston.
This past June, Papa released his anticipated third book, We’re All In This Together…So Make Some Room. The book compiles comedic essays that aim to unite us through our stupidity.
His highly-rated podcast, Breaking Bread with Tom Papa, features Papa and his guest eating, drinking, and engaging in revealing and funny conversations.
When he’s not on the road, Papa lives in Los Angeles with his family where he spends most of his time writing and baking bread.
