"When it comes to portraying a smorgasbord of freaks, perverts and social pariahs, nobody does it better than Paul Thomas, the man behind Paul Thomas: Comedogenic. His laser-like attention to character work results in compelling scenework that is hilarious (and kinda disturbing)."
-- Jason Heidemann, Time Out Chicago
"...their mix of absurdity and plausibility makes all of [Thomas's sketches] funny."
(4 stars) -- Time Out New York
"Thomas bestows clever writing and supreme character commitment on each scene.”
-- Steve Heisler, Chicago Reader

Press for Paul’s post-grunge acoustic rock group LOLA BALATRO
"The music stands on its own, but songs such as 'Name That Panda' and 'I Got 2 Black Friends' will make it clear it's a comedy show."
-- Time Out Chicago
"It’s surprising to hear the three bad-ass looking dudes from Lola Balatro harmonizing to melodic acoustic-guitar arrangements on their self-titled debut. Even more surprising is that they’re pretty funny."
-- Illinois Entertainer
"...the musical hooks are so dangerously catchy, you may wonder how you lived without them."
-- Trib Local (Wilmette)
