R.I.P. Paul Hannum

R.I.P. Paul Hannum

I was saddened to learn of the untimely death of Paul Hannum, co-director of the improvisational comedy The Real Old Testament:

As an ongoing project, Paul, and his brother Curtis, have maintained a V-log–called the GodVlog–commenting on all manner of current events in character as their biblical alter-egos:

This recent clip features Paul, as the Snake, discussing the Al Gore Global Warming doc An Inconvenient Truth with God (Curtis).

To get a sense of Paul’s wit and infectious personality, check out this article from Birmingham, where The Real Old Testament film won the Audience Award at Sidewalk.

I extend my deepest sympathy to Curtis, the Hannum family and Paul’s fiance.

You will be missed.
