No Coveting the Standup 

Wednesday, Mar 17 2010
Tom Papa is the host of The Marriage Ref, and since we’ve been fleeing from everything that has to do with The Marriage Ref — the promos, the reviews, the show itself — we don’t know how he’s doing. We do know he’s opened for Jerry Seinfeld’s standup show for many years, and that sent us to YouTube, and we discovered something delightful: Tom Papa is a very skilled classic joke teller, and will have you laughing, almost despite yourself, about things like fatherhood, the gym, body hair, growing old, and drinking. He has an enthusiasm and a wit that brings these hoary standup staples well further than his sitcom brethren — don’t forget he opens for a legend.
March 26-28, 8 & 10:15 p.m., 2010
