In addition to being a star basketball player in high school, he began accepting school and church gigs, wowing crowds with his virtuosity. Then, while majoring in music education at California State University, Fresno, Paul began serving as a leader in the Christian ministry group Young Life. In this role, he was charged with educating teenagers about the Bible through skits, songs, and other humorous material. Soon Paul realized he had an act — an original, honest-to-goodness comedy act. Moreover, so he began traveling America’s West, performing at youth conferences, retreats, and churches.
