Stand-up is all well and good, but observational humor that’s funny and warm may work best in books. And Tom Papa, whose loyal audiences are packed with “date night” couples of all ages, has perfected the form. In We're All In This Together, Papa’s thirty-seven short essays tackle these universal American topics, among others:

–Love for Your First Car (“To Buy or Lease”)
–The Truth about Personal Hygiene (“How You Know When It’s Time to Go”)
–Date Nights (“Will You Go Out with Me?”)
–Unfamiliar Hotel Rooms (“Why Nothing Works”)
–Pets (“Cats–Ancient Menace”)
–Drinking (“There’s no Cure for a Hangover”)
–Ducking your Family, even Though you Love Them (“The Lesson of Mark Twain’s Cigars”)

Tom Papa’s books make readers laugh, but–crucially–feel better about themselves while doing it. And while there’s thematic overlap with Papa’s stand-up, with a couple of exceptions, all the writing here is fresh for our book.

When not touring the country, Tom lives in Los Angeles and bakes bread with his wife, daughters, cat and somewhat loyal dog.

Praise For…

"Tom Papa isn’t just one of our most hilarious comic minds, he is also a big-hearted observer of the human condition. The world would be a much better place if it were filled with nothing but millions of Tom Papa clones. Okay, not clones, I went too far there— but people who are kind of like him!" — Judd Apatow

"I've told you to read Tom's books before, but he just keeps writing more! Either he has something to prove or you just like hearing from me. Thankfully, he's still very funny." — Jim Gaffigan

“Humorous, sympathetic, and humane … Papa’s latest book is sure to appeal to his fans as well as anyone who appreciates understated humor that probes the nature of the human condition.” — Kirkus
