Paul Provenza is the host of Showtime's "The Green Room with Paul Provenza." He has been working in the field of Stand-Up Comedy for over 30 years now, and is the man responsible for the movie The Aristocrats and the book Satiristas: Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs & Vulgarians.
In addition to Comedy, Paul is an accomplished actor who has played parts in such shows as The Facts of Life, Northern Exposure, and The West Wing.
Paul comes to the Skeptics movement from the point of view of a comedian. While we may think of Magicians as experts of deception and Scientists as experts in diligently uncovering scientific truths, Comedians are often expert analysts of human behavior.
During TAM9 Paul will be hosting a Live Satiristas show with several very special guests. Paul has made it a habit to bring together comedians to entertain, challenge, and inform audiences while having a blast of a time in the process. This is what he does on his Showtime Show and it's what he is doing for the Skeptics movement by bringing comedians to TAM and putting on a show for attendees.
