"An hour spent with master storyteller Paul Strickland is an hour well spent,

and one you should not miss.”

– Cincinnati Enquirer 


Paul Strickland is a professional storyteller and theatre artist who lives in Kentucky. 

He has well over 7 hours of unique family friendly stories in his repertoire. 


Paul was an FEATURED TELLER: NEW VOICE at the National Storytelling Festival in 2023.

He was also a Featured Teller at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in September of 2023,

and has been a featured teller at several major storytelling festivals,

including the Cave Run Storytelling Festival, in 2022.

In November of 2018 he made his NYC stage debut Off-Broadway at the SoHo Playhouse

with his shadow and flashlight ghost story play "13 Dead Dreams of "Eugene." 

Always adapting to whatever audience is in front of him, Paul LOVES telling stories

in every imaginable environment, from comedy clubs to elementary and middle schools,

corporate events and even two prisons - where he was NOT an inmate at the time.  

Collections of his stories have won "Best of Fest" honors more than 16 times 

at Fringe Theatre Festivals in the US and Canada.

Selections from his comedy performance "Levels of Difficulty" are still played nearly every day on SiriusXM radio.
