Teller of Tall Tales

and other Fictions

Paul Strickland's collections of stories have won "Best of Fest" honors

on 13 different occasions at Fringe Theatre Festivals across the U.S. and Canada.

He was an Exchange Place Teller at the National Storytelling Festival in 2018

and 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." 

He is a featured teller at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in September of 2020,

and will be a featured teller at several fests, including the Cave Run Storytelling Festival, in 2021.

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

Always adapting to whatever audience is in front of him, Paul has told 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.  

Selections from his comedy performance "Levels of Difficulty" can be heard every day

on SiriusXM radio.

"Paul Strickland is a nice combination of Gamble Rogers, Kevin Kling and Willy Claflin.

He’s got a whole bunch of tall tale type stories from his fictional trailer park

with a whole host of quirky, sweet, smart, and hilarious characters."
