Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
The debut stand-up hour from the multi award-winning co-writer of 'The Vicar of Dibley'.
Paul’s co-written or worked on many much-loved comedy shows – I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Old Harry’s Game, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Spitting Image and Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot starring Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench.
Now Paul has Parkinson’s but he’s still laughing.
‘An entertaining hour with an engaging raconteur who refuses to take his illness too seriously.’★★★★★ Wee Review
Following his BBC One Documentary, Parkinson’s: The Funny Side (for which he won the Girerson Award for Best Documentary Paresenter, a triumphant debut at London’s Comedy Store, and a sold-out month at the Edinburgh Fringe, here’s a one man show about the therapeutic power of comedy.

'Charmingly funny & warmly delivered… The well-worked punchlines should appeal to every age.'
'Brave – and funny.'
'So funny – and true, in the way only comedy can express.'
'Eloquent storytelling reminiscent of the likes of Terry Jones and Peter Sellers… sets the room into fits of laughter.'
