Paul is an award-winning comic who since 2005 has been entertaining audiences across the UK and beyond. Since starting as an MC in his own London Comedy Club, Paul has developed into a much sought after performer on the comedy circuit. His intelligent humour focuses not only on sharp observations from life, but also racial, cultural and satirical subjects, intermingled with strange tales of ordinary madness. Sometimes silly, serious or surreal, sometimes autobiographical, political or near the knuckle - but always funny!
Paul is in demand as an MC and act in prestigious London venues like the Comedy Store (London & Manchester), Comedy Café, Banana Cabaret, Outside The Box, Downstairs At The Kings Head, Bearcat Comedy, Falling Down With Laughter, Hampstead Comedy Club, Crack Comedy Clubs and Brixton Comedy, as well as The Stand, Highlight, Jongleurs, Barnstormers Comedy, The Comedy Club Ltd, Off The Kerb Clubs, Alan Anderson Ha Ha Comedy, Funhouse Comedy Clubs, Just The Tonic (London & Nottingham), Glee Comedy Clubs, Frog & Bucket, Manchester, Gagging For Laughs, Growling Clown Clubs, Buzz Comedy Clubs, Last Minute Comedy Clubs and Mirth Control comedy clubs across the UK.
