Paul Sinha is the world's only gay, Asian, GP-turned-stand-up-comedian. And last year he was nominated for live comedy's highest accolade, the If.comedy Award (formerly the Perrier). Following a sell-out run at The Edinburgh Festival, he's now embarking on his first national tour with his show, King Of The World. It delivers his unique take on life, death, binge drinking, trivia fanaticism and the roulette tables of Las Vegas.
Smart, articulate, provocative and a regular on Radio 4's The Now Show, Sinha is one of the funniest social commentators in the UK today.
"There's an irresistible new rhythm and momentum to King of the World, with jokes coming thick and fast, but often when you least expect them." [Telegraph]
"Well on the way to earning himself a place in the pantheon of comedy greats." [Scotsman]
This is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate" [Chortle]
Kerry Godliman, who will be doing an extended opening set, has rapidly risen to prominence to become one of the most respected and admired female comedians currently performing on the live circuit. Kerry has toured the country on the very popular "Dove Naked Truth" comedy tour, as well as having just completed filming a new ITV1 sitcom pilot called "Hibbert & Long". Kerry was also previously one of the stars of the CH4 sketch show "Spoons", but it is live where she really shines.
“A great comic who oozes personality” [Evening Standard]
“This cocky Londoner knows how to hold an audience’s attention, with a well-honed delivery that ensures her material always gets the best response.” [Chortle]
Compere for the show is Christian Steel, who besides being one of the most exciting new comedians to come out of Newcastle in the last few years, is also a talented actor and has starred in films alongside the likes of Kenneth Branagh and Kevin Spacey. With his slightly manic, nervy style and easy going charm, Christian will get the audience in the mood for the main acts to follow.
