Paul Sinha

Saturday 9 October 2021

Festival favourite, comedian and star of The Chase, Paul Sinha returns to the Southport Comedy Festival for a seventh year.


Paul is back on the road with the show that covid temporarily put on hold. So far, Paul has lived his life content in the understanding that stability and emotional happiness were lovely ideas but not really for him. Nonetheless, several decades of bearing boozy witness to the narratives of others can slowly change a man. And so can a prosecco-fuelled Christmas.

Paul is a Rose d’Or Award winner for the radio comedy, Paul Sinha’s History Revision, a Chortle Award winner and an Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. He’s appeared on Just A MinuteThe News Quiz and Fighting Talk on radio and on Would I Lie to You?, QI and Taskmaster on television. Thanks to his passion for quizzing, he also appears as a general knowledge expert on the much-loved ITV quiz show, The Chase.

An earlier version of this show was performed at Southport Comedy Festival in October 2019.
