Paul was honored with a Peabody Award for Excellence in Broadcasting (think the Pulitzer Prize for Broadcasting) and a second Emmy nomination for his work on “The Daily Show”. Paul was featured in “The Daily Show” segment, “Second Opinion,” in which he skewered the medical profession playing an HMO representative with a less than sympathetic mindset.

A segment from the series entitled, “Race in Sports,” was nominated for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding New Approaches – Short Format category.

A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Paul graduated with Honors from Georgetown Law School and began his career on Wall Street as a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at the law firm of Willkie Farr and Gallagher and later as an investment banker at CS First Boston. All the while, Paul was honing a second career writing and performing comedy and was hired by Jay Leno to write jokes for “The Tonight Show.” In 1995, with the encouragement of Jay, Paul moved center stage, leaving Wall Street and starting his career as a stand-up comedian.
