STAND UP COMEDY

U-S-A_036.jpg

I've been performing stand up comedy in the District and at festivals around the country since 2012! My stand up is sarcastic, witty and often includes imaginative over-analysis of everyday life. I frequently explore super original and edgy topics like my cats, dating and eating.

I have performed at the Howard Theatre and the Contemporary Jewish Museum and am proud to be the regular host of PUN DMV at the DC Improv and the Well, Well, Well Comedy Live Stream at Your Computer! I also produce and host highly elaborate theme shows for holidays. 

Please contact me for booking! I can easily do a clean set to meet the needs of your audience.

One of Bill Burr’s favorite touring partners (they even have a podcast together), Paul stepped into the spotlight in late 2018 with his very own one-hour special on Comedy Central. He followed that up with a nationwide tour AND a Netflix special. His act is fast-paced, fun and hard-hitting, touching on everything from family life to front-page headlines. Featuring: Tim Miller and Dana Fleitman!

Super Spooktacular Comedy Show to Restore & Preserve Congressional Cemetery!

10/26/2022, 7:00PM, Kramerbooks (Outdoors)

Tickets available here!
 

Democracy may be dead, but at least its cemetery is chill AF. This October, Grassroots Comedy presents a Halloween Spooktacular raising funds to help preserve and restore historic landmark Congressional Cemetery!

Congressional Cemetery, with the first burial in 1807, is among the oldest institutions in D.C. and the final resting place for scores of individuals who were instrumental in the founding of the nation and its new capitol city. Today -- in addition to being a National Historic Landmark and an active cemetery-- they're a creative community space that promotes innovative and sustainable practices, such as beekeeping, grazing goats, and a dog-walking program, plus being the only D.C. cemetery offering green burials. With options like these, who wouldn't want to memento mori?
 

We’ll be getting into the spirit with a killer lineup of comedians plus some extra macabre merriment throughout the show -- almost tomb much fun! Tickets will be going fast, so get yours while you can! Of corpse, we'll have a costume contest, so costumes/Halloween flair encouraged.
