Paul F. Thompkins Anyone?

Holy hell it’s been too long since I have last blogged.

Julie and I went to the Fringe Festival to see our friend Todd’s play last night. It was at the Adrienne Theater across the street from Helium comedy club. After the show I walked over to see who was playing. Julie stayed on the other side of the street. I saw Patrice O’Neil is coming at the end of September. However I am going to see his as prt of the Opie and Anthony Traveling Virus Tour. I also saw Paul F. Thompkins is currently playing there.

I walked back to Julie and told her. Then I though, it’s 10:45 on a Thursday night. I turned back to Helium and who walks out the door? Paul F. Thompkins. Are you kidding me? He walks in the opposite direction of where Julie and I are standing. He was with people, friends perhaps (the fellow is from Philly). I think should I run over there and tell him I’m a fan? Then the moment is gone, he’s too far away, and I do nothing.

I want to call someone…anyone. It then occurs to me, I don’t think anyone I know would give a shit. Most people would have no idea who Paul F. Thompksin is. For those of you I’ll say this: He was a regular on Mr. Show on HBO. If you don’t know Mr. Show google it goddammit! I told Julie, and she asked if he was one of the main guys. I said, “If it were Bob Odenkirk, I would’ve run over regardless of who he was with. He could be giving mouth to mouth to his great grandmother, I’d still interrupt.”

How sad though. I thought through everyone I know. Berger would know who he is, but he won’t care. Tara would know, but she deals with famous people all the time (cast members of Lost call her while we are at Italian Festivals). Sue and Amy would probably know, but again I don’t know how much they would care.

What happened to my Nerds?!?

Everyone rent Mr. Show today. Then we will talk.

I happen to love Mr. Thompkins. He's quite the satirist on Best Week Ever.
You can always text me, Kev. I like you A LOT more than the cast of Lost :)
