Doors at 7pm | Show starts at 7:30 Paul is a stand up come­di­an who grew up in the sub­urbs out­side of New York City. He loves his fam­i­ly, cig­ars and hav­ing point­less sports argu­ments with his friends. He was first attract­ed to stand up com­e­dy at a very young age. He was only nine years old when he wit­nessed Eddie Mur­phey’s Raw”. Although he could­n’t under­stand all the jokes and prob­a­bly should not have been lis­ten­ing to expic­it lan­guage, he became instantl­ly intrigued by the idea of speak­ing into a micro­phone and mak­ing a crowd of peo­ple hap­py. Also, in the mid-eight­ies, his father took him to see Rod­ney Dan­ger­field live at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. By the end of the show, he was sleep­ing on his fathers lap but the seed was plant­ed. Start­ing out Paul was per­form­ing any­where he could. From doing con­tests, awful bar gigs where he stood on soda crates as a stage and even some­ones liv­ing room hold­ing an emp­ty coro­na bot­tle as a mic. Paul now head­lines clubs all across Amer­i­ca. Many of the nations top com­e­dy clubs have called him one of the strongest up and com­ers work­ing today. Paul has also opened for some of the biggest names in the busi­ness. Comics such as Bill Burr, Dave Attell and Jim Breuer to name a few. Recent­ly he has toured with Bill Burr in some of the coun­try’s great­est the­aters includ­ing, Con­sti­tu­tion Hall, The Chica­go The­atre and Carnegie Hall where he killed in front of a sold out crowd on the most leg­endary stage in the world. Dur­ing the NY Com­e­dy Fes­ti­val Paul opened for Burr at Madi­son Square Gar­den in front of 15,000 peo­ple. Paul’s debut album Paul Virzi Night At The Stand” was #1 on iTunes and #4 on Bill­boards com­e­dy album charts. Every week you can hear him host his very pop­u­lar pod­cast The Virzi Effect”. Some of his cred­its include TV appear­ances on AXS TV’s Gotham Com­e­dy Live”, The NFL Net­works Good Morn­ing Foot­ball” and writ­ing for the ESPN ESPY Awards. Paul has made numer­ous appear­ances at the very pres­ti­gious Just For Laughs Com­e­dy Fes­ti­val In Mon­tréal and was recent­ly asked to per­form at the SXSW Fes­ti­val in Austin, TX. He can also be seen on the upcom­ing sea­son of truTV’s Com­e­dy Knock­out”. Paul 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.
