Comedian and radio host Tom Papa brings his unique take on life’s foibles to Omaha in April.

There are a variety of ways in which you may have become familiar with comedian Tom Papa. He’s acted in multiple films, appeared on all of the late night shows, and, most notably, performed stand-up comedy for more than 20 years. Papa is popular for his observational style of humor that focuses on the day-to-day difficulties of being human. He is currently touring to promote his 2020 memoir and Netflix special, both titled You’re Doing Great! These works remind the audience that life is hard, and we’re all just doing the best we can. On April 17, Papa is performing back-to-back shows at the Waiting Room Lounge at 7 p.m. and 9:30. Doors open an hour before showtime, and tickets start at $27.50. After the difficult year that was 2020, we could all use a good laugh, so reserve your tickets today and get ready for a good time.
