The Paul Mecurio Show

Paul Mecurio was a Wall Street lawyer and investment banker before becoming a nationally acclaimed comedian and Emmy & Peabody Award-winner for his work on "The Daily Show." So he is no stranger to the unpredictable path life can take. Each week, Paul interviews a wide range of high profile figures from entertainment, the media, sports, politics, and more about their lives and careers, uncovering hilarious anecdotes and surprising insights along the way. Guests on "The Paul Mecurio Show" include Paul McCartney, Stephen Colbert, Bob Costas, Sugar Ray Leonard, Jay Leno, Kristen Chenoweth, Adam Carolla, MTV Network President Doug Herzog, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Lewis Black and Terry Gilliam, to name a few. With thought-provoking, well-researched questions, Paul explores the creative process of his guests revealing what makes them so great at what they do, and along the way, consistently produces ground-breaking interviews.

"Paul is that rare interviewer that's both a strong and generous personality. We get interviewed all the time, and Paul was amazingly able to get us to brand new material and fresh ground. One of the best interviews I've done."
- Adam Savage, host of Discovery Channel's "MythBusters"
