Hey Champaign-Urbana, do you like comedian Paul F. Tompkins, former host of Best Week Ever and purveyor of a new album, Freak Wharf? Well of course you do, that’s like saying you like sunlight. But do you like him enough to pay to see him if he were to play a show in C-U?
If you and 299 others like you join this Facebook group, which says that you’d like to pay money to sit and listen to him tell jokes, as long as you don’t have to leave town to do so, then the esteemed Mr. Tompkins will play a show right here in the frozen corn-stubbled steppe of east central Illinois. And that would be awesome.
