Meet comedian Tom Papa. We could be seeing quite a bit of him on our telly next year.
Papa will serve as the “Ref” in Jerry Seinfeld’s The Marriage Ref which Seven has the rights to.
In fact it has the rights to both the US series and a local adaptation.
In each episode couples present their case to a panel of comedians and celebrities. The panel then tries to convince the Ref which spouse is correct.
Papa has supported Seinfeld’s live comedy appearances, and has made appearances on Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, a recurring role on The New Adventures of Old Christine, and the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy specials. He has also had several movie roles.
Marriage Ref begins production in January.
