Paul Iarrobino

Paul credits his upbringing in a large, Italian, East Coast family for helping him speak up at the dining room table, lest he go unheard. Having lived in Portland for over 30 years, he enjoys performing, producing shows, creating documentaries, teaching, and coaching. Paul has appeared in numerous storytelling venues including The Moth; Mortified Nation; Bag & Baggage’s Solofest; 7 Deadly Sin’s Mainstage; and Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire.

Since 2015, Paul has been creating memorable experiences by weaving together personal narratives with grit and humor. His storytelling company, Our Bold Voices, produces themed events, with many raising funds for local charities.

Paul is excited to add “author” to his storytelling wheelhouse. His first book, an anthology of COVID stories and poems, was published in fall 2022.
