Sat 7th July
Stagefright Comedy Club Presents Paul Sinha


Tickets £10. Available from The Venue or online via


Paul Sinha
Rose D’Or winner for his Radio 4 series ‘Paul Sinha’s History Revision’. Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated star as featured on ‘7 Day Sunday’, ‘Just A Minute’, ‘Loose Ends’, ‘The Alternative Comedy Experience’ and ‘Fighting Talk’ amongst numerous others and is one of the chasers on ITV’s multi award-winning quiz show ‘The Chase’. As well as a wonderfully witty stand-up with memorable turns of phrase and a refreshing passionate approach to his varied subject matter, he is a qualified GP and international stand-up comic of many years standing. He’ll be previewing brand new material from his forthcoming Edinburgh Festival Show, 'The Two Ages Of Man'. Paul will return to the Edinburgh Festival with his life still bordering on disarray. Having spent two decades juggling disparate careers, loneliness, heartbreak, a multitude of vices, and an overwhelming urge to show off his general knowledge, he finds that just as one problem disappears, another one suddenly emerges. Paul is forty-eight and is pondering the unthinkable. Is he past it?
