Paul Farahvar released a Dry Bar Comedy Special: Always A Groomsman, and a special on Helium Records: Middle Western Middle Eastern, last year. He was a runner up in the Chicago Reader for Best Stand-Up Comedian and was voted Top 40 Up and Coming Comedians.  Paul also played Karam Haddad on NBCs Chicago Med and was a regular guest host on WGN Radio.

Paul’s podcast, SINGLES ONLY!, was voted Best Podcast  (Chicago Reader) before beginning another- the Why Are You Awake podcast, which brings attention to creatives and night owls like himself. He has worked with popular comics such as Jen Kirkman, Demitri Martin and Gary Gulman.

Prior to being a comedian, Farahvar was a trial litigator, earning the ‘Top 40 under 40’ honor among judges and peers in Illinois. He now delights audiences with his unique, quick witted dry humor, centered on being an aging bachelor and former litigator.
