Paul Mecurio’s last name should be Lothario. He isn’t too proud for anyone’s bed and he has no qualms with sleeping his way to the top.
Whether it’s spooning with producer extraordinaire Tom Fontana and gazing longingly at the tattoo he got during the intro of his classic HBO drama Oz, or serving as a sexual conduit to host of The Daily Show Jon Stewart, the places and people in which Mecurio has dipped his Hollywood wick know no bounds. And all that sleeping around has finally paid off.
Before Mecurio was a well-known comedian, he was a mergers and acquisitions lawyer on Wall Street. Every night, he would go home and pen jokes for his own amusement.
