Paul Sinha

Southport Comedy Festival favourite Paul Sinha returns for his 8th year with a brand-new show.

Paul has attracted an army of fans locally through his superb performances at the Festival over the years.

Many will know him from his starring role on ITV quiz show The Chase, but as a comedian Paul is a Rose d’Or award winner for radio comedy, Chortle Award winner and Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. 

He has appeared on Just A Minute, The News Quiz and Fighting Talk on radio and on Would I Lie to You?, QI and Taskmaster on television.

Paul’s new show entitled One Sinha Lifetime will as ever be autobiographical.

In January 2020, Paul embarked on a national tour, his most ambitious show combining stand-up, music, hula-hooping and tales of romantic validation and neurological degeneration. As it turned out, 2020 proved to be the wrong year to embark on a national tour. For everyone.

Undeterred, Paul is back, with the difficult second post-diagnosis album. Expect a rich tapestry of japes and scrapes, triumphs and disasters, from a master storyteller.

The stories are told with a constant light-touch wit… Parkinson’s hasn’t robbed him of his ability to do stand-up, it’s enhanced it’ ★★★★

Paul plays the Southport Comedy Festival on Friday 7th October. Tickets have been kept at just £15 as Paul is aware of the rise of living costs for everyone.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 20th May.

Paul joins an already stellar line-up at this year’s festival which include TV names: Al Murray, Milton Jones, Jason Byrne, Maisie Adams, Chris McCausland, Jimeoin, Jo Caulfield, Ed Byrne, Rachel Fairburn, Mark Simmons, Reginald D Hunter, comedian, blogger and author of Best Seller Learner Parent Sam Avery and all the way from Australia for his only UK performance award winning Chester born comedian Jeff Green.

The entire Southport Comedy Festival takes place under canvas in a heated and seated marquee courtesy of Elite Marquees at Southport’s Victoria Park, home of the Southport Flower Show.
