Behind The Bits #1 - Paul F. Tompkins

Posted by - 06:45 AM on 08/14/13
Today, I'm very excited to be kicking off a feature that is 1.) my first real jaunt into original content as a staff member, and 2.) going to be a big player as far as comedy coverage on the site goes when looking into the future. I got the chance to have the wonderful Paul F. Tompkins be the first interviewee for my column Behind The Bits, which hopes to gather an in-depth look at the world of stand-up comedy. Head over to my blog to get more of a lowdown on this segment & to read the first half of our chat, and be sure keep an eye out here every Wednesday for future installments.
You know, I actually worry about the opposite. If Iím talking about my experiences working on a movie, I have to keep in mind ĎOh, is this something that people are going to find funny outside of Los Angeles?í And thatís where the emotional component comes in, is that you donít have to be in show business to understand what Iím talking about because the story is not ĎI was around this famous person,í the story is ĎI felt like I didnít belong, I felt like somebody was going to tell me to leave, I was uncomfortable, I was awkward,í and thatís something everybody but the most seasoned sociopaths can relate to.

Love the comedy stuff on this site. Totally back the diversification on content too. Just because it isn't music doesn't mean the community isn't interested in it.
