Paul Ogata is an award-winning comedian, part-time porn star and quite possibly America’s leading comedy export.
The Hawaii-born Ogata left his island home for Los Angeles in 2006 after a successful career as a top-rated morning radio personality. Shortly thereafter, Paul won the prestigious 32nd Annual San Francisco International Comedy Competition, putting him in an exclusive club with the likes of Dana Carvey, Sinbad, Doug Stanhope and other comedy greats.
This propelled Paul to numerous television appearances including The Late Late Show, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, Comics Unleashed, Celebrity Family Feud and Showtime’s “Pacific Rim Comedy.” In 2017, Paul shot a half-hour special for Comedy Central Asia. His 1-hour special, "A Collection of My Favorite Lies," can be seen on Amazon Prime.
While Paul performs across the United States, his tour schedule also includes regular stops across six continents. Paul headlines shows from Times Square to Tokyo and from Sydney to San Antonio.
On stage, Paul Ogata lays bare his insecurities, recounts his marital foibles and hammers on world events. Paul’s show is an edgy, often-improvised, always-hilarious romp through the corners of his mind. Buckle up and come along for the ride!
