BOSTON, Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Acclaimed comedian Paul D'Angelo has released a new humor book, Stories I Tell: A Comic's Random Attempts to Make Some Sense Out of Nonsense, that the Los Angeles Times called, "wild and brilliant."
Paul D'Angelo, a former Essex County (MA) assistant district attorney and criminal-defense trial attorney, is now one of the nation's top stand-up comedians. Known as a prolific creator of intelligent, introspective and reflective humor that everyone can relate to, there are still numerous comedy routines, funny stories and anecdotes that Paul rarely gets an opportunity to share with his live audiences.
For that reason, Paul now presents many of these comedic treasures in a random collection of entertaining musings, which range in subject matter from hilarious courtroom stories, to the dilemma facing an unhappy Eva Braun as she contemplates breaking up with Hitler; from a stand-up comic's life in Hollywood, to being attacked by a Great White Shark in his own water-bed; and from satirical commentary on contemporary society, to Paul's awkward attempts at conversation while having lunch with Jesus.
Paul says, "It's just one funny story after another presented in the style of my act… stories from my childhood, my days in law school, and working as a prosecutor prior to defending criminals; stories about show business, struggling to make it in L.A., and celebrity encounters; plus social sarcasm, original comedy routines that rarely make it into my act, and material that comes across better on the page. It's a fast, fun read."
Paul D'Angelo has opened for over sixty internationally known acts, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Tom Jones, Tony Bennett, The Beach Boys, Chicago, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Jerry Lee Lewis, Huey Lewis & The News, Lyle Lovett, George Carlin, Joan Rivers and Dennis Miller; in famed entertainment venues from the legendary Friar's Club and the main ballroom of New York City's Waldorf Astoria, to the main showroom at Harrah's Casino and Caesar's Palace. Paul has also entertained hundreds of prominent corporate clients throughout the country and recently co-starred in Showtime's popular stand-up comedy movie, 'The Godfathers of Comedy'.
