Chicago based Paul Farahvar has continued to delight audiences with his self-deprecating dry humor, centered on being a single son of disappointed middle eastern parents. After becoming a regular at Chicago stand up clubs like Zanies, Comedy Bar and Laugh Factory, Farahvar was given the rare opportunity to host and produce his own monthly (now weekly) called "Drink Date Laugh" about dating and a comedic game show called "Everyone's a Lawyer" both at the World Famous Laugh Factory. He also regularly tours the country as a headliner and opening for national headliners Demetri Martin, Jen Kirkman and Gary Gulman.
Farahvar currently performs regularly at Laugh Factory (Chicago, Las Vegas, Hollywood), Zanies (Chicago, Rosemont, and St. Charles), House of Comedy (Phoenix, Minnesota), Skyline Comedy Club (Wisconsin and Tacoma), Comedy Club on State, Comedy Bar (Chicago) and McCurdys (Florida). He is also the host of the Podcasts SINGLES ONLY! and MAKE US A MIX TAPE (iTunes, Laugh Factory Channel, Sticher) and a guest host on WGN Radio. He played "Karam Haddad" on NBC's "Chicago Med" in 2017.
Paul and I talked about leaving his job as an attorney to pursue comedy full time, the Chicago comedy scene, and inventive ways he made his hosting duties fun and unique.
