Wife Without Parols 

Unhappily domesticated comedian hits the bottle for inspiration.

Stand-up comedian Tom Papa spends a big chunk of his act bitching about his wife and their two kids. Naturally, the talk leads to booze. “Alcohol is the only thing that you put into your body that actually comes with a story,” he says. “‘You want some tequila?’ ‘No, dude -- the last time I had that . . .’”

The New Jersey native says comedy is a full-time job that requires a great deal of discipline. “If I sit down and try to write, nine times out of ten, nothing’s going to happen,” he says. “But if I don’t sit down, then I’m guaranteed nothing’s going to happen.”
