Sitting near the front will make you a surefire target for the remainder of the show. He ends his show by using the audience for material.

The star is for the second comedian, Joe Klocek. His humor was topical and sly - made you think. Tompkins admitted he'd just gotten off a flight, but he was amateurish and kept referring to his TV show as if being a "star" made it OK to deliver...continued

Funny funny Cobbs is always great 'cept for Brian Posehn. Little nerd rage took hold of the big fella and he launched into a buzz kill in the middle of the show. It was totally unnecessary and unprofessional. Paul F. was fantastical.

Paul F. Tompkins was hilarious! This was one of the best shows I've seen at Cobb's. The tickets were a steal!
