About Paul

I'm a comedy writer who lives in Queensland, Australia, but don't hold that against me. If you're going to hold something against me make it cash or cheesecake.

So far I've won the Euroscript Screenwriting Competition in 2016 held in London for the Romantic Feature Comedy - Elvis Town and was a finalist in the same competition in 2014 for a Coming of Age Comedy titled - I Can Turn Men. In 2016, I was also a Semi-Finalist in the StoryPros International Screenplay competition for the feature Comedy Horror - Holiday from Hell.

Having milked cows, inseminated cows, and dated co--, no I'm joking there I never really dated cows, but I really did inseminate some using frozen bull semen. An interesting experience, especially if the cow coughs. But enough of that, I've also worked at a Post Office, pumped gas, packed butter, picked fruit, worked in a butcher shop, completed an accounting degree, been a Case Manager and a Housing Officer. I think they were the pre-requisites for being a comedy writer weren't they? Or did I read the wrong course requirements again?

They say that laughter is the best medicine so I plan to vaccinate the globe or at least some parts of it. I'm sure there will be some countries that will have a note from their mom asking for their little country to be excused because they get some adverse reaction to it (like smiling or laughing). Anyhow, the plan is to churn out a great comedy like The Full Monty, Crocodile Dundee or The Life of Brian. After that, then it will be the next script and the next one.

Billy Joel once said that writing a song is like giving birth. If that's the case then writing a screenplay must be like having Octuplets. Maybe I'll be known as Octodad? That could explain why my stomach appears to have swollen in the past few months.

Anyhow, if you're interested in a script, or want some help with yours, you can email @ pmahoney@westnet.com.au or message me.
