Paul F. Tompkins makes dreams come true

Halifax meets the comedian's challenge and wins the biggest prize of all.

So kids, here's a story of never giving up your dreams. When Coast writer Mark Black read in Mondo that "When Toronto comedian Bob Kerr tweeted Tompkins in late July and asked him to perform here, Tompkins responded with a challenge: Kerr’s aptly named “I Wanna See Paul F. Tompkins in Toronto!” group reached 300 people by the first week of August."

Could it? Would it work in Halifax? So Black started a FB group and In no time at all, more than 300 Haligonians showed their funny bones, and now Tompkins has agreed to perfom here. The former Mr. Show cast member will be at The Company House, for two shows on March 27. Ticket details, TBD.
