Tom Papa

Tom, Papa

With more than 20 years as a stand-up comedian, Tom Papa is one of the top comedic voices in the country. He is the new head writer and regular performer for nationally syndicated radio show Live From Here, the latest incarnation of the legendary radio show A Prairie Home Companion, and his first book Your Dad Stole My Rake: And Other Family Dilemmas was released in June 2018. A regular on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Conan, Tom’s third hour-long stand-up special, Human Mule, premiered on Amazon and Hulu. He is host of the weekly hit podcast and SiriusXM show Come to Papa, an hour-long show that explores the funny side of life, occasionally with guests like Mel Brooks, Ray Romano, Carl Reiner and Jerry Seinfeld. On the small screen, Tom was seen alongside Clive Owen in two episodes of The Knick, and co-starred with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in HBO's Behind the Candelabra. Tom was seen in Chris Rock’s film Top Five, opposite Matt Damon in the Steven Soderbergh film The Informant, and appeared in Analyze That opposite Robert DeNiro.
