About the Author

TOM PAPA is a comedian known for his live performances as well as his work in film, television, radio and on streaming services. Papa is a frequent panelist on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, a writer and performer on the public radio variety show Live from Here (the latest incarnation of the legendary A Prairie Home Companion), host of a daily SiriusXM show, What a Joke with Papa and Fortune, and the podcast Come to Papa, and the star of four streaming stand-up specials. His Netflix special, You're Doing Great, premiered in early 2020. Papa is also the author of Your Dad Stole My Rake. When not on tour, Tom lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two daughters, cat, and somewhat loyal dog, and bakes bread.


"You're Doing Great! is your no-nonsense go-to collection of essays to get you through the increasing noise and chatter of self-doubt and confusion in the new millennium. Tom Papa is a funny, empathetic guide and your new best friend." --Patton Oswalt

"When someone asks me to write a blurb for their book, I usually want to fake my death, but Tom is hilarious and this will be worth your time. Read it. Listen to it. Whatever, do what you want. According to Tom you're doing great." --Whitney Cummings

"I like when Tom writes words and puts them in a row. It's much better than listening to him say random words. Buy this book." --Matt Damon

"I've had a lot of guests on my podcast but only one is really funny, a great writer, and brings me bread. All hail my friend, the Sultan of Sourdough!" --Joe Rogan

"A comedian muses on life, love, and simple pleasures ... in a collection of funny, warmhearted essays . . . reminiscent of E.B. White." --Kirkus Reviews

"Papa offers a delightful set of upbeat and candidly humorous essays on the challenges of modern living. This collection is a clever respite for readers looking for lighthearted escape from their daily lives."
--Publishers Weekly
