Description: 2 fantastic headliners in one show with PAUL MORRISSEY (Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comics Unleashed) and KT TATARA (Comedy Central, Showtime, MTV)
Paul Morrissey: Paul was raised as a sports fanatic in the tiny town of Owego, 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 to return three more times to the show. Morrissey’s four appearances are the most by a comedian on “The Late, Late Show” during the past year. The recent TV exposure has put Paul in high demand as a headliner at clubs 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 The Icehouse in Pasadena. Morrissey has also released two CDs,”Good Seats Still Available” and "Comedy Sampler" which get regular airplay on both XM/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.”
KT Tatara: KT Tatara’s comedy is sometimes brutally honest but always funny. His logic-based opinions provide unique insight into timeless topics such as gender roles and race. KT performs across the United States and is one of the most requested comedians on the college circuit. He lives in Los Angeles where he can be seen nightly at the top comedy clubs.
In 2006, KT was featured as one of the top “New Faces of Comedy” at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, Canada. Following his stellar performance there, KT has been invited back to the festival several times.
As a comedian, KT has made television appearances on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” Showtime’s “Live Nude Comedy,” MTV’s “MVP’s” and the nationally syndicated show, “Comics Unleashed." As an actor, KT has co-starred on CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother” and has had recurring roles on ABC Family’s “Greek” and Showtime’s “Californication.”
