SUPEREGO w/ PAUL F. TOMPKINS (LA)
SUPEREGO began in 2006 when Matt Gourley and Jeremy Carter finally decided to record some of the stupid things they’d been saying. Luckily, Podcasts were just starting to emerge as an obscure form of media that no one was listening to. They remained patient and kept recording what would become the Superego Podcast: a collection of improvised, character-based sketches presented through the loose psychological framework of analytical Pscience™. Soon after, Mark McConville officially joined the staff as well as resident video specialist Jeff Crocker. Since then, they’ve steadily garnered over a million downloads, been featured on the iTunes main podcast page, and welcomed such guests as Patton Oswalt, Jason Sudeikis, John Hodgman, Andy Daly, Drew Carey.

For this Austin Sketch Fest edition, Superego welcomes the amazing Paul F. Tompkins. In addition to his numerous stand-up specials and albums, he has been seen on Mr. Show with Bob & David, Tenacious D, and Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins among many other television shows. He also appears in the film There Will Be Blood for almost a full minute. Mr. Tompkins also hosts the notable podcast, The Pod F. Tompkast.
Programming note: Superego is doing two different shows, not the same show twice. Crazy!
