Papa is also a successful standup comedian who for three years has been the opening act for Jerry Seinfeld. TV audiences have seen him on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”
Papa grew up in New Jersey. He first realized he wanted to be a comedian when at a very young age he heard Steve Martin’s comedy album “Let’s Get Small” at a friend’s house. After he graduated from college, Papa began appearing at various Open Mike nights at comedy clubs around New York. Comedy became an addiction. He perfected his act and performed seven nights a week while working as an advertising copywriter during the day.
After about four years, Papa got his first big break. He was given a half-hour special for Comedy Central. He also began writing for Colin Quinn’s “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live.”
Now, he says, “I’m in the lucky position of being able to make people laugh for a living.” Papa has also appeared in the film “Analyze That” and the NBC series “The Colin Quinn Show.”
He lives in New York and Los Angeles with his wife and their baby daughter.
