The real Jason Bourne — take that, Jeremy Renner! — surprised an intimate New York City crowd at the Comedy Cellar’s sister club at the Village Underground tonight during comedian Tom Papa’s taping of Come to Papa. The show, taped for SiriusXM, finds Papa as the host of an old-school radio show — complete with narrator, jazz band and expertly crafted scripted sketches — intercut with stand-up comedy sets. Tonight’s guests featured The Daily Show‘s Al Madrigal, Jim Norton, John Mulaney, Rick Crom, Amy Schumer, Cynthia Koury and William Stephenson.

Damon, who’s not on Twitter, later returned for a sketch with Papa that imagined a series of Tweets he’s been collecting over the years, despite not having an account. Papa co-starred in Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 flick The Informant! with Damon and most recently had a part in the director’s HBO Liberace biopic Behind the Candalabra, in which Damon starred opposite Michael Douglas.

    I was flipping through my xm channels on my drive today and caught the tail end of this show. I’m trying to find out when it will repeat so I can catch the whole thing. I don’t think there is anywhere online I can catch it.
