One half of the former a cappella group DaVinci's Notebook, Paul and Storm is a musical comedy duo consisting of Paul Sabourin and Greg "Storm" Di Costanzo.

They have appeared many times on The Bob and Tom Show (sometimes as "the Barrytones", a barbershop quartet consisting of "Barry, Barry, Barry, and Barry"), and tour regularly with Jonathan Coulton, including appearing on his concert DVD and doing a Riff Trax with him for Tron. They've also written for other Riff Trax movies, and they wrote and performed "The Ballad of the Sneak" for Homestar Runner and the Lil' Guildies theme for The Guild's 2010 April Fool's Joke. Along with Wil Wheaton and Adam Savage, they are the headliners of the recurring special event-thing "W00tstock" which often includes special guests like Hard'n'Phirm, Felicia Day, Bill Corbett, Trace Beaulieu, Kevin Murphy and MC Frontalot.

They will host the upcoming webshow "Learning Town", on Felicia Day's Geek And Sundry Youtube channel.

They received a far bit of press attention in the beginning of August 2010 for starting two joke trends on Twitter: "Wookiee Leaks" and "Kanye New Yorker Tweets".


Paul and Storm's songs have examples of:

 We are here to do five or six or seven songs

Not go too long, and get the hell off the stage

We are the Opening Band

We're probably not the band you came to see tonight

But it's alright, 'cause soon we'll go away.

 "They are not seeking justice

They've got no wrongs to right

They're just here to sing some dick jokes

And ride off into the night!"

  • Refuge in Audacity: Nugget Man is a humorous but straightforward, even truthful, tribute to Robert C. Baker, who had passed away the year prior, and his contributions to the invention of chicken nuggets... until the last verse, in which it's said his will called for him to be made into nuggets and buried in several containers filled with honey-mustard sauce.
  • Ripped from the Headlines: Many of their songs for The Bob and Tom Show were topical. Most of these are collected on their album News To Us.
  • Subverted Rhyme Every Occasion: Played with in That's The News Of The Week, which Paul and Storm recorded their lyrics for separately.

 Paul: Did you hear that little Sasha Cohen

didn't quite win the gold?

Storm: I guess I could just sing anything

and you would never know.

Paul: Now instead of being the queen of the rink...

Storm: I'm wearing my underwear as a hat

and letting the boys swing free, my friend.

Both: And that's the news of the week!

    • Also: "Cruel, Cruel Moon" does this at the end of the chorus, with each new plea to that Cruel, Cruel Moon.
  • Running Gag: The podcasts are never 5 to 10 minutes (on average). They do point out the ten-minute mark... often LONG after its passed (for those who only want to listen to five to ten minutes of their podcast).
    • They eventually decided that the title of the podcast meant that they discussed each subject for 5 to 10 minutes (on average). This is much more reasonable and accurate, though they still do the running gag about the ten-minute mark.
    • Also, as noted above, their A Good Name for a Rock Band jokes during their concerts.
