Paul Zaloom

zaloom_by_Sean_DennieStarting out at age 19 with the renowned Bread and Puppet Theater, Paul Zaloom began making avant-garde solo shows in 1978. As a comedic puppeteer, political satirist, filmmaker, and performance artist, Zaloom tours his work all over the world and lives and works in Los Angeles. Zaloom has written, designed and performed 12 full-length solo spectacles. Gen X fondly remember him as Beakman, the wacked-out, weirdo scientist who answered viewers’ questions about science, nature and various bodily functions.

*Don’t miss Paul Zaloom in the Dolly Wiggler Cabaret, March 16 &17.
