Since 1984, Paul had one dream: to be Ghostbuster. Two years ago Paul's childhood dream came true! Paul takes you on his Ghostbusting odyssey of hosting psychic theatre tours, braving haunted houses across the UK, co- writing a song with Sigourney Weaver, being hounded by offended religious groups, and getting dating advice from Derek Acorah. A mix of storytelling, sketches, videos and songs to tell the unique tale of how the demons under your bed are not as bad as the demons in your mind. 'Rapid fire delivery and side-splitting one liners' (ArtsInLeicester.co.uk).
