“One of those comedians who makes you realise the power of stand-up comedy and the respect it deserves as an art form.” – Yorkshire Post
On Friday 28th March St Paul’s welcomes comedian Paul Sinha on his latest UK tour. Sinha is a stand-up comedian, but you might have seen him on the telly, as ‘The Sinnerman’, catching unlucky contestants on ITV’s tea-time quiz, The Chase. Over the last fifteen years, anyone who’s been to a Norfolk A & E or visited a London doctor’s surgery might have been treated by him. Paul is a qualified GP. He wasn’t there handing out biscuits. That’d be weird.
Eagle-eyed quiz anoraks might remember him from his less than successful appearances on Mastermind, The Brain of Britain, The Weakest Link and University Challenge – The Professionals. But what many people might not know is that for well over a decade Paul Sinha has been making his name in the world of stand-up comedy. He’s had great gigs, he’s had horrific gigs; he’s performed at gigs from Aberdeen to Auckland and from Sheffield to Singapore. Paul Sinha is many things. He’s a brother, a doctor, a Gemini, a sports fanatic, a godparent, a proud quiz geek and, according to Jim Davidson, ‘an Indian poof’. But first and foremost, he is a stand-up comedian. A great stand-up comedian.
