The Bartender: Why shouldn't someone go live in Philadelphia or Portland? Hollywood is a pit.
Paul F. Tompkins: Pat, Hollywood is the greatest city on the face of the Earth.
The Bartender: Oh yeah? What's so great about Hollywood?
Paul F. Tompkins: What's? Okay, I'll tell you what's so great about it. Um, okay, the other day - I'm in my neighborhood, I'm walking to my neighborhood drug store - what do I see across the street?

4 pints of Guinness later
9 September 2002 | by (LV, NV) – See all my reviews

Paul F. Tompkins used to do the scathing 'Us People's Weekly Entertainment Report' on "The Daily Show". I used to not laugh so I didn't miss anything. He is an alumnus of "Mr Show", probably the funniest show there ever was. His anger at stupidity is palpable, but most notably his own stupidity rankles him the most. In "Driven to Drink" he recounts a wasted night at Dirty Frank's in Philly literally sucking on a bar rag. I used to hang in Frank's. I don't doubt this story is true. I had tears in my eyes.
