Paul got his first Broadway show by being picked out of a hat to be in the 5000th performance of A CHORUS LINE at the Shubert Theater back in '87. Audition by lottery. What a concept! Now, a West Coast resident and proud of it, Paul has legitimately appeared at several regional theatres including The Tiffany, The Laguna Playhouse, Moonlight Amphitheatre, and The Alex to name a few (no hats involved). Some of his more colorful roles have included Disney's ALADDIN (from Disneyland to the El Capitan in Hollywood to as far as Spain and Thailand), rock 'n roll monsters Wolfie, Drac, and Phantom in Universal Studios BEETLEJUICE show, and an old Hollywood crooner narrating a National GERSHWIN ON ICE tour. But, most recently, Paul has made his way into the world of television appearing in JACK & JILL, SHASTA (McNASTY), MALIBU CA, USA HIGH and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. He was even a special guest on the LEEZA GIBBONS show. Let's see, being picked out of a hat or going through 4 hours of prosthetic make-up for BUFFY? I'll take the latex! Hail to the MADNESS!
