Lehigh Valley with Love Podcast Episode 79: Comedian Paul Spratt at ComedyPlatz

Thank you to everyone who came out to our 14 shows at ComedyPlatz at the Ice House during Musikfest! We had about 3,000 total people at all the shows!

We were able to sit down with comedian Paul Spratt backstage for a quick, but memorable, episode of the Lehigh Valley with Love Podcast.

A bit about Paul Spratt: Paul born in Boston but grew up in Pennsylvania brings a unique and different outlook to the world he lives in through his comedy.

Knowing both the crowded city life but also the quiet country life leads him to have a different view on everything happening in his own life and around him. Paul brings a honest truthful in your face kind of honesty about what a lot of us take for granted in the everyday world. Comedy therapy where someone says what you were always thinking. Paul also loves to take time to donating to charity events, running, and working his own events for one of his favorite charities B4BC.org where he’s raised over $10,000 for breast cancer.

Rising through a relatively unknown comedy scene in Scranton, PA to becoming an up and coming comic now in the New York city scene. Paul has been seen working in a lot of the clubs in the tri-state area and also finished high in some well regarded comedy competitions and festivals.

Multi-time semi-finalist in the March Madness Comedy competition at the Stress Factory Comedy Club Laughing Skull Comedy Festival Winner of New Jersey’s funniest comic at the Stress Factory Semi Finalist in Helium’s Philly’s Phunniest Semi- Finalist in Last Comix Standing at Comix at Foxwoods Winner of Wisecrackers comedy competition Semi- Finalist in the Comedy Cabaret comedy competition Cape May Comedy Festival Paul regularly opens on the road for comic Joe Matarese but also has opened for many other big name comedians such as Dom Irrera, Dave Attell, and many more.
