In his 2015 Edinburgh Fringe show, the stand-up comedian and doyen of daytime, Paul Sinha, weaved an intricate tale of happiness based on a combination of doing the two jobs he loved, enjoying parental approval, and, actually being in a proper, grown-up, long-term relationship.
The day after he returned home from Edinburgh, the illusion of happiness was shattered. Was this the end? The beginning of the end? Or the end of a beginning?
Paul has written and performed his own series on Radio 4, is a frequent guest on 5 Live’s Fighting Talkand is the Chaser, known as The Sinnerman, on ITV’s The Chase.
Life will bring him crashing down to earth soon enough. And that really ought to sustain his densely funny and accomplished comedy
One of those comedians who makes you realise the power of stand-up comedy and the respect it deserves as an art form
His is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate
