Paul Thomas is A character writing and performing sumbitch, he has performed his critically acclaimed solo sketch show Comedogenic at the New York Sketch Comedy Festival, Chicago Sketchfest, SketchfestNYC, the Public House Theater, iO Theaters Chicago & LA, and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival.

In October he made his network TV debut as Big John on Chicago Fire on NBC. Check it out here.

Paul also likes to make short films, or as people with film degrees call them, “videos.” His epic web series Ped Crossing, based on one of his solo sketches, was featured in The Onion AV Club. Some of other his work has screened at the Just for Laughs Festivals in Montreal and Chicago, the L.A. Comedy Shorts Festival, and the Chicago Comedy Film Festival, amongst others. Please waste a better part of an afternoon watching his stuff on the video page. Much cooler is that he was featured in The Breeders’ video “Walk It Off.”

Paul is also a stand-up comic, and is a cast member of Chicago Underground Comedy.

On the music front, Paul, Jeff Madden, and Cork Kangas comprise Lola Balatro, the post-grunge acoustic com-rock band that is scorching the earth with hits like “I Got 2 Black Friends” and “Questionable Beef.”

If you’re a fan of the game, watch a few videos on this website to see why Paul Thomas might be the next Larry Bird of comedy.
