Born with a keen ability to ad lib (that's not what his teachers called it!), Paul comes by humor naturally. While in college, Paul began developing the clean, encouraging style of entertainment that is his trademark today - humor with a message. Now, over twenty years and thousands of comedy/music "gigs" later, he still can't believe his good fortune at having "the best job in the world." In addition to his funny music, Paul also writes articles and teaches seminars for Single Adults, MC's and speaks at various events, and writes and leads worship music.
But more than just a great entertainer, Paul Aldrich is a communicator of life changing truth - the truth of Jesus Christ. In high school, Paul came into contact with the student outreach ministry Young Life; an encounter that soon changed the course of his life.
"I grew up in church but I really connected with God when I was a teenager. At that time I finally began to understand how much God loved me so following and serving Him naturally became the thing I most wanted to do. After high school, I became a volunteer Young Life leader and began performing funny skits, leading songs, and teaching simple lessons from the Bible to teens. This turned out to be the foundation for what I do now with people of all ages - using humor and music as a vehicle to touch hearts with the good news of Jesus Christ."
