LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.

Today's subject is Paul Scheer.

Prior to his days as one-third of MTV's "Human Giant" (LAist Interview), co-star of FX's "The League," panelist on VH-1's "Best Week Ever" or guest starring on "30 Rock," comedian/actor Paul Scheer was making audiences laugh online as one of the stars of "Shutterbugs," a Channel 101 classic featuring fellow "Human Giant" stars Rob Huebel and Aziz Ansari (Seven Questions, LAist Interview) as cutthroat agents to infant Hollywood stars. Paul, who recently hosted "A Night of 140 Tweets" -- celebrity tweet-a-thon benefiting the people of Haiti, continues to make us all laugh online with his numerous Funny or Die.com videos and his must-follow Twitter updates.

Tonight, Paul will host the 2nd Annual Streamy Awards, which recognize achievement in web television and online entertainment. Nominees for this year's awards, which is being held at Downtown's Orpheum Theatre, include "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," "Diggnation" and "Auto-tune the News." Live broadcast of the show kicks off at 5:30 pm on Streamys.org.
