Tom Papa on Conan

Smoking will kill you, but it still looks cool and gives you ready-made excuses. Tom Papa knows this and must convey this to all generations, as he did Monday night on Conan. Papa also reminded us of something Groucho Marx once said to a previous generation, about neither wanting nor needing to be a member of the club. Any club, really. But especially that club you’re trying to get us to join when we really just want to buy our ointment and go home.

Roll the clip!

Previously: Tom Papa talked to The Comic’s Comic about his 2013 stand-up special, Freaked Out.
