About

paul-sinha

A trained medical doctor who is perhaps best known as the Sinnerman on the hugely popular ITV quiz show The Chase, Paul has been a successful comedian for a number of years. As a club comedian, he has played every major comedy club in the UK, performed in eighteen other countries across the globe, and been three times nominated for Best Club Comedian at the Chortle Awards, winning in 2014.

Paul has taken eight solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe, his 2006 show Saint or Sinha being nominated for whatever the Perrier award was called back then. His 2016 show Shout out to my Ex had a sell out run and is now touring nationally.

On Radio 4, Paul has appeared several times on venerable favourites Just a Minute, the Now Show, and the News Quiz, and has carved out a career in factual comedy, with shows on cricket, the 2012 Olympics, Magna Carta, UK Citizenship, and three series of History Revision, which won the 2016 Rose D’or for best radio comedy show. He also plays for the South of England, on the long running Round Britain Quiz. On Radio 5, he is a regular and twice series champion on feisty sports panel show Fighting Talk.

At time of writing, Paul is ranked 6th in the UK at quizzing and in November 2017 recorded his second top 10 finish at the European Quizzing Championships.

"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

"This is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate."

Chortle

"Well on the way to earning himself a place in the pantheon of comedy greats."
