Paul Elia's Bio
Paul Elia is an LA-based actor, standup comedian, and content creator from Detroit, Michigan. Among the few Chaldeans/Assyrians in Hollywood, the Iraqi-American artist has appeared in dozens of television shows and movies, including Hulu’s critically-acclaimed darling RAMY, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Netflix’s Lady Dynamite. He is perhaps best known as a recurring sketch player on TBS’s Conan, appearing in over a dozen sketches. With fellow comedian Matt Rife, Paul created, produced, and hosted the hot LA standup showcase Lowkey Upset at The Comedy Store. When the 2020 Pandemic struck, the duo brought live comedy back to LA by moving the show outdoors and rebranding it Lowkey Outside, which received a glowing review from Deadline for bringing LA comedy fans “a much-needed, top-quality outdoor entertainment experience.” The show was instantly a hit, and continues to showcase some of the biggest names in comedy, including Bill Burr, Iliza Shlesingler, and Ian Edwards, with whom Paul also co-created the original web series Roommates.
