Versatile BBC Radio 4 and 5Live regular, Paul Sinha returns with his characteristic mix of topical comedy and memorable storytelling. In recent shows, he's tackled subjects as diverse as sexual politics, far right extremism and competitive quizzing. This year Paul draws inspiration from more of life's lunacies and shows why he has become one of the most critically celebrated Edinburgh Festival comedians of recent years. 'Mesmerising' (Scotsman). 'Hugely entertaining' (Skinny). 'Truly exceptional. The best, cleverest, funniest, most thought-provoking piece of stand-up comedy I have ever seen' (FringeGuru.com). 'Indian poof' (Jim Davidson).

Reviews

Press articles

Paul Sinha talks about 'the final stretch...'

Only four gigs to go now and would you believe it? It has been hugely enjoyable.

Paul Sinha, Giggle Beats, 25th August 2011

Why won't the broadsheets review The Stand?

The broadsheet comedy critics have no excuse. It is their job to offer an accurate assessment of comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. If they are almost completely ignoring the shows at the Stand, then they are failing to do their job.

Half time report

If the Fringe is a marathon not a sprint, then I'm at the 15 mile mark feeling exhilaration and exhaustion in equal measure.

Interview: Paul Sinha, comedian

Paul Sinha is British-Asian, "openly gay" (his phrase), a qualified doctor, a stand-up comedian with a show at the Fringe and one of Britain's top quizzers - a skill which has just got him his own TV slot.

Brian Pendreigh, The Scotsman, 11th August 2011

An interview with Paul Sinha

Paul Sinha is someone who you probably know as a comedian, although he may have saved your life if you were in a hospital in London or King's Lynn in the late '90s, as a junior doctor.
