Paul moved to New York City recently after spending several successful years in Chicago theater and commercial work. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Paul has performed in theaters and comedy clubs all over the country. Words cannot describe how excited he is to be performing and touring Defending the Cavemen.

In addition to “the Caveman,” Paul has mastered characters ranging from Edmund Tyrone in Long Day’s Journey into Night and Cassius in Julius Caesar, to a recurring role as Comedian/DJ Johnny Hughes in the Off-Broadway production of The Awesome 80s Prom at the Radio Star Ballroom (with fellow “Caveman” Ben Tedder); other Chicago credits include work at the Actors Workshop Theatre, Victory Gardens Greenhouse, Oak Park Festival Theatre, Metropolis Performing Arts Center, The Journeyman Theatre, Apollo Theatre, Chemically Imbalanced Comedy and Emerald City Theatre.

Paul has also appeared in a variety of commercials, industrials, and films; most recently a web industrial for Tyson Foods, and an independent short film entitled “SUGAR” released in Oct., ‘07 (with yet another fellow “Caveman,” Chris “Sully” Sullivan).

Paul received his BA from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. He also studied the classics at the Victory Gardens Theatre.
