Former Wall Street lawyer and investment banker Paul Mecurio was hired by Jay Leno to write jokes for “The Tonight Show." After living a secret double life as a Wall Street lawyer/investment banker by day and comedian by night, Paul left Wall Street to go into entertainment full time. Mecurio is now an Emmy and Peabody Award winning comedian for his work on "The Daily Show w/Jon Stewart," “The Late Show w/Stephen Colbert,” recurring appearances on “The Late Show,” other national shows and his own comedy specials. He is also an accomplished actor, hosts the critically acclaimed podcast “Inside Out w/Paul Mecurio,” an award-winning writer and appears regularly as a commentator on news and sports outlets including, CNN, MSNBC, “CBS Sunday Morning,” Fox News, HLN and ESPN.
Paul also created and starred in his hit, unique one-man Broadway show, “Paul Mecurio’s Permission to Speak” which was directed and produced by legendary director Frank Oz (“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “Stepford Wives,” and “Little Shop of Horrors”). “Permission To Speak” was met with rave reviews and been nominated for the prestigious “Best One-Man Show” Broadway Alliance Award.
In “Permission to Speak,” Paul invites audience members on stage asking them about their lives and what they honestly think, allowing them to feel empowered to reveal fun, inspiring and compelling personal stories that are relatable to all of us. Paul fearlessly, but respectfully, taps into their inner humanity, using humor and compassion to reveal UNIVERSAL truths that lead to meaningful, fun and welcomed connections. With Paul guiding the way, this new, bold approach, results in extraordinary, jaw-dropping, funny and fascinating stories from peoples’ personal lives. Fun, empathetic and non-judgmental, Permission to Speak has a true human quality to it. A transformation occurs when strangers cross paths and discover they have much more in common than they had thought. We prove what sets us apart can ultimately bring us together.
