Hello and hola! I am Paul Vato and I am here to help with whatever you may need to book your next audition.

I have been an actor, improvisor & business owner since the 1900s. I specialize in improv and sketch comedy having studied at The Second City, iO Theater and The Annoyance Theater in Chicago, IL.

While at iO Theater I had the amazing opportunity to study with improv comedy guru and legend, Del Close, who directed me in several shows at iO.

I am a proud member of SAG-AFTRA.

I speak both English and Spanish fluently and I am studying, Italian & Russian.

I can help you in a number of ways including:
- Rehearsals
- Running lines
- Breaking down a script
- Fleshing out characters or stories.
- Answering questions that you might have about acting, improvisational comedy, podcasting, getting your book on Amazon and/or entrepreneurship.

I am a versatile reader and I will focus on giving you whatever you need to give an authentic and personal performance.

If you'd like, I can also coach and help with script and character analysis, determining goals, obstacles, tactics, and more!

If you need any technical advice on self-tape auditions I can provide that as well.

I'm so very excited to work with you!
