Who is the comedian/writer/actor that The Los Angeles Times calls “…quite likely the funniest entertainer you’ve never heard of… yet”?
Paul Murphy spent almost eleven years as an Assistant District Attorney, supervising several of Massachusetts’s busiest courthouses, before building a reputation as a noted criminal-defense trial attorney. The unexpected twist to this story is that, for nine of those years, under the pseudonym of Paul D’Angelo, Paul was simultaneously becoming one of the nation’s top standup comedians.
Combining an energetic, charismatic stage presence and spontaneous improvisational talent with an endless array of intelligent humor delivered in an animated style that grabs and holds the attention of crowds everywhere he performs, Paul’s constantly evolving and diverse selection of original material “takes normal everyday experiences and makes them sound absolutely hilarious.” Critics further write that “(Paul D’Angelo) is an energetic performer who gives a peak performance at every show.” “His quick comedic mind,” “unique observations” and “down to earth, stop-and-think humor” “keeps the crowd in hysterics.”
Paul recently co-starred in Showtime’s popular stand-up comedy movie, ‘The Godfathers of Comedy’, and has also released two DVDs and three critically acclaimed comedy CDs that are played regularly on national radio. In addition, Paul is the writer/director/co-star of the original sitcom pilot ‘A Fine Mess’ which was featured at the prestigious New York International Independent Film Festival.
Although Paul is known to comedy devotees as a prolific creator of intelligent, introspective and reflective humor that everyone can relate to, there are still numerous comedy routines, funny stories and anecdotes that Paul rarely gets an opportunity to share with his live audiences, so he has written a hilarious collection of those eclectic musings in multiple award-winning books accessible from his Amazon author’s page.
