Paul has toured with Bill Burr in some of the country's most iconic theaters including, Madison Square Garden, The Chicago Theatre and Carnegie Hall. Every week you can hear him host his very popular podcast The Virzi Effect.


Paul grew up in the suburbs, outside of New York City. He loves his family, cigars and having pointless sports arguments with his friends. He never fails in keeping the laughs coming and making the audience feel comfortable with his hard hitting personal approach. He is fun to watch and has a stage presence that is second to none.
