The longest running Asian comedy show in the land… 

Paul Ogata

Paul Ogata

Regularly performing across six continents, Paul Ogata is America’s leading comedy export.


Paul Ogata’s show is an edgy, often-improvised, always-hilarious, wild ride through the corners of his mind. His quick, animated delivery of clever material led him to victory in the prestigious 32nd Annual San Francisco International Comedy Competition. This put Ogata in an exclusive club with such comic greats as Dana Carvey, Sinbad and Doug Stanhope.

Paul’s victory in San Francisco propelled him to a series of television appearances including Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”, the globally syndicated “Comics Unleashed” and his performance in Showtime’s groundbreaking program “Pacific Rim Comedy”. On the big screen, Paul co-starred in the underground hit motion picture, “Porndogs” with adult-movie legends Ron Jeremy, Tera Patrick and the late Marilyn Chambers. He was also featured in Damon Wayans’ film “Behind the Smile”.

From Hong Kong to Hollywood, and from Bahrain to Bishkek, Paul headlines shows around the world!

“A clear favourite with the audience, impressing with his delivery and

sharp wisecracks.”

“Ogata’s quick sense of humour, wit and sarcasm, coupled with the way

he engaged the audience so naturally, is no wonder why the host dubbed

him as “comic royalty”.
