Paul is also an outspoken advocate of secularism. He was one of the speakers at the Reason Rally in 2012 and will most likely do it again in 2016. Paul’s comedic nature brings a very unique and entertaining approach to being openly secular. During the interview Paul discusses everything from being a Catholic altar boy to working with big name comedians and actors.
