Andrew Martinez, a local comedian who has performed at a past Elks Club Comedy night and many other venues nearby in NYC has something to say about a more “established” comedian allegedly lifting his material. He created a YouTube video to document the offense in his view. Here is his statement:
"I received several phone calls, emails, and Facebook messages when the Comedy Central commercial aired for Tom Papa’s new special. I was doing this bit years ago and still do it. Tom Papa (or more likely, his writers) don’t need to steal material from someone who is struggling to "make it". If it is stolen, its not right and it only makes it harder for someone like me to be successful. If it isn’t… well… you decide.
That being said, I always found Tom to be a funny guy and hope that he understands why I had to do this."
For discussion: Do you think Andrew has a legitimate complaint here? Share your thoughts in the comments below. TheBoken.com first heard Andrew’s very funny joke about “MyFace” quite a few year’s back with the same delivery as Tom Papa in terms of the pause before the punch line. This was well before Tom had his Comedy Central Special aired.
