Paul Gilligan is one of the most requested comedians
in Boston, bringing down the house with an attitude
first developed as a high school class clown, and with
material culled from his life as a blue collar worker,
husband and father. In addition to headlining in Boston
clubs, golf tournaments, fundraisers, roasts, and other
events, Gilligan is a regular performer at the Riviera
Casino in Las Vegas.
Among the national headliners he's performed with are
Pat Cooper, the Amazing Johnathan, Dom Irrera, Dave
Chappelle, Brian Regan, Gilbert Godfried and David
Alan Grier, as well as Boston-boys-gone-national Dane
Cook, Lenny Clarke, Nick DiPaolo, Joe Rogan, John
Pinette, and Maine's Bob Marley. At one point, he
hosted his own weekly shows at two Nick's Comedy
Stop locations, in Framingham and Saugus.
A licensed electrician, he is often requested to work
for trade association groups, including as master of
ceremonies at the Boston Construction Awards. While
not on the comedy stage, Gilligan is devoted to his
family and community, where he's particularly active
in youth sports.
