Paul F. Tompkins Is Piloting Himself a New Comedy Central Pilot

Comedy's foremost gentleman, Paul F. Tompkins, is working on a pilot for Comedy Central called Nightcap, which is being described as "a humorous and interactive look at the world of popular culture as Paul and a recurring group of his funny friends offer their unique take on the most talked-about stories of the day.” Eban Schletter will be providing live piano accompaniment like he so wonderfully does on the Pod F. Tompkast. It's the type of show that Comedy Central seems to be always looking for to slide into the post Daily Show/Colbert Report slot. I guess, it might be time to start looking for a three-piece pajama suit.

    No one deserves their own show more than Paul.  If this gets picked up, I will make the world watch it.

    Didn't he learn his lesson with Best Week Ever?  Paul's strength is in his storytelling, not his cultural commentary.  It always pained me to see one of the world's foremost storytelling comedians doing one liners on worthless people and situations.  Sad to hear he's considering going back to it.
