Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
Paul has won a Rose d’Or for his radio comedy, won a Chortle award for his stand-up, been nominated for the highest accolade in live comedy, the Edinburgh Comedy Award, and won umpteen awards as part of the team for ITV’s 'The Chase', and yet...
… Paul returns to Soho Theatre with his life, seemingly, 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 emerges. Paul is 48 and is pondering the unthinkable. Is he past it? Was Shakespeare wrong? Are there only Two Ages of Man?
Paul appears on The Chase (ITV) regularly, on Fighting Talk (BBC 5 Live) and The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) sporadically and in Crystal Palace Sainsbury’s once a flood, when the call for a Scotch egg overwhelms him.
'A comedian at the very top of his game'
'Delightfully written, packed out with stories, jokes, misdirection and call-backs’
