Paul and Storm (Paul Sabourin and Greg “Storm” DiCostanzo) have been writing and performing funny songs together for a long, long time, starting with their stint together in a cappella band Da Vinci’s Notebook. Their music tends to make people laugh and feel good, and Paul and Storm believe that this makes their pursuit noble, right and just. BONUS: their live show is better than 1,000 Fonzies, and more spellbinding than Mr. T on a unicycle. (And equally as confusing as both of those things)
The duo’s musical webseries, “LearningTown”, debuted on Felicia Day’s Geek & Sundry YouTube channel in January 2013. The ten-episode series features all-new original songs by Paul and Storm, and includes such notable guests as comedy music legend “Weird Al” Yankovic, Maurissa Tancharoen (co-creator of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and co-exec. producer of ABC’s upcoming “S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV series), fellow music-comedian Mike Phirman (half of Hard ‘n Phirm, along with Chris Hardwick), James Urbaniak (voice of Dr. Venture on “Venture Bros.”), and YouTube videomaker Greg Benson.
In addition to their own performances, Paul and Storm are also co-founders of w00tstock, their geek-oriented variety show co-hosted by Adam Savage “Mythbusters”) and Wil Wheaton (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”, “Eureka”), which has toured theaters across America since 2009 and whose guests have included Neil Gaiman, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Felicia Day and Chris Hardwick. The duo also co-produce JoCo Cruise Crazy, a Caribbean cruise/concert festival for fans of internet musician Jonathan Coulton, which began in 2011.
Paul and Storm’s music has also been featured on the popular online cartoon website Homestar Runner, web series The Guild and The Legend of Neil, “The Drew Carey Show”, Comedy Central, NPR’s Ask Me Another, the “Bob and Tom” syndicated morning radio show, and all over the YouTubes and internets. Their latest CD, “Do You Like Star Wars?”, is available wherever it is sold.
They’re also notorious for generating far-reaching Twitter hashtag memes, most notably #wookieeleaks and #kanyenewyorkercartoons.
