Paul was raised as a sports fanatic in the tiny town of Oswego, in upstate New York. After four years of playing college basketball, somehow he graduated. Aside from playing in the NBA, his dream job was to talk about sports for a living. Paul then moved to California after landing a television sports anchor job but found out quickly that he was “too much of a smart-ass” for TV news. After he was fired, Paul took his unique sense of humor to comedy club stages all over the country. In 2005, Paul was selected to perform at the HBO Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. Morrissey has also been a finalist in several national comedy competitions including Wendy’s Comedy Challenge, Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight and Maxim’s Real Men of Comedy. Morrissey’s big break came in June 2006, when he made his network television debut on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on CBS. He was so well received that Paul has been asked back 5 times! The TV exposure has put Paul in high demand as a headliner at clubs, corporate vents, and colleges across the US and Canada. He also performs frequently at The Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, and Comedy Death Ray at the UCB Theater in Los Angeles.
Morrissey also released his debut CD,”Good Seats Still Available,” which gets regular airplay on both XM and Sirius Satellite Radio. One reviewer says, “When an experienced comedy fan is repeatedly surprised by the payoff or where the jokes land, you know you are listening to an original comedic talent.” In July 2014, Paul made his debut on the Late Show with David Letterman to stellar reviews!
