As usual, Paul Mecurio has a bunch of projects on his plate. He’s still appearing as a guest commentator on major cable news channels such as CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. He has a regular gig on CBS Sunday Morning. He’s also getting more acting roles, and is up for a film that starts shooting in the fall. “I’m doing more movie roles, which has been exciting. I’ve wanted to do more film. I’m a very handsome man,” he laughs. Add to that a one-person show that is scheduled to open on Broadway in May. “It’s not standup,” he notes. “It’s a theater show done in a comedic style. It’s me telling stories, but the audience is also telling stories along with me.” Mecurio famously chucked a career in business law for standup, but he still uses his legal training. “I just did a contract. My lawyer looked at it, then I gave him my law notes,” he explains. “I still have a good eye for language that doesn’t make sense, like things that might be overreaching.” 16+.
