Very good show! Cannot remember a time I laughed so hard at Cobbs!
Tom Papa touched on different aspects of life, never used dirty humor. Great performance overall. The other two comedians were all right.

Tom was hilarious w/o trying too hard. Took some 1st timers & they raved about it. Cobbs is a casual & comfortable venue. We got a 2nd row table that was perfect. Any closer & we would have been part of the show w/the rest of the 1st row!

I went with my boyfriend for a "date night," since we got such a good offer through goldstar. Tom Papa was hilarious! He's whole thing is about relationships, and it's like having a friend tell you really funny anecdotes about his family and just...continued

Tom's show was freakin' hilarious (without being raunchy)-- he had a full hour's worth on my favorite topic: relationships! I agree, he deserves way more air time on Marriage Ref.

Cobb's is a decent venue. We arrived just before 8, still...continued

To be honest...I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this event. So...when you go to a comedy club without much expectation, it's really a pleasant surprise to not only really enjoy the evening (two of the three comedians were really funny), but...continued

Great comedian! Knows how to be funny without having to be crude or stupid (which isn't actually funny unless you're drunk). I love his brand of comedy....using real life and showing how funny it is! Loved hearing all the funny stories about...continued

It was a really fun evening - he engages the first row of the audience and is very free-flowing with his humor. We commented that we could see him next week and expect a totally different, but equally funny show. His humor is clean - more like a...continued

This was our second time seeing Tom Papa at Cobbs. This time we were sure to bring friends assured it would be a great evening...and we were not disappointed. He has an amazing ability to tell stories and involve the audience like you are old...continued

I cried multiple times from laughing. He dealt w/annoying people in the front row who were trying to be funny very well. Can't wait till he comes back to town!

We've seen Tom Papa on TV as the moderator on the Marriage Ref so we knew he was funny and a quick wit, but we had no idea how hilarious he was in person, doing stand-up. I'm quick to laugh out loud, but when someone can keep me laughing non-stop...continued

I saw Tom Papa about a year and a half ago. He was funny enough then to lure me back for a second round, but this show was one of the funniest I've been to in my life. I laughed so hard that I thought I was going to lose control of my body. He...continued

I wasn't 100% sure I'd love this guy's comedy but I absolutely did. I would have paid full price to see him and frankly, probably will pay it in the future. He was really really good. (Warm up acts were just okay.)

Loved Tom Papa's show! Very funny and very appropriate jokes. Was definitely several heads above of first 2 performers. Papa's ability to move around politics, his personal life, his kids, pets, etc... is very professional and fun. Me and my...continued

This was a great deal, a great show, and all around a GREAT night! Tom was hilarious and really should be given more airtime on "The Marraige Ref"!

Tom Papa is really hilarious. I started laughing the moment he opened his mouth and really didn't stop until we got home. It was GREAT to get half price tickets on Goldstar. It was super easy - they had my name on their list at will call and we...continued

Tom Papa was great. He was funny without swearing to get a laugh from the audience. It was our 33rd anniversary so the comedy was so approprite for us.

Cobb's is not a favorite venue of mine for a number of reasons (had my shoulder doused in wine by a passing waitress and saw a couple across from me get a similar wine shower, was repeatedly kicked by a passive/aggressive patron behind me who came...continued

Be prepared for a long wait outside in the weather with an unresponsive ticket booth. Our show was about an hour delayed without any notice given - multiple notices that they would let us enter in 5 minutes turned into an hour delay.

Tom Papa is a tremendously funny and insightful comedian.
He had me at the opening statement which was delivered FLAT OUT.
So much of his material is about the everyday human existence how could anyone not relate.
I was laughing so hard that...continued
