A double-bill of comedy previews.
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 2017 show Shout Out To My Ex had a sellout run and toured nationally, with 2018?s The Two Ages Of Man following suit. 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 ? making programmes on cricket, the 2012 Olympics, the Magna Carta, and UK citizenship; and three series of the Rose d?Or-winning Paul Sinha?s History Revision. Alongside Marcus Berkmann, he also plays for the South of England on the long-running Round Britain Quiz. On Radio 5 Live, he is a regular (and twice series champion) on the ?feisty? sports panel show Fighting Talk. At the time of writing, Paul is ranked sixth in the UK at quizzing and, in November 2017, recorded his second top-ten finish at the European Quizzing Championships.

Paul Sinha is a qualified GP and international stand up comic of many years standing, having performed in all major comedy clubs in the UK, as well as China, Auckland, Singapore, the Middle East, South Africa, Netherlands and Germany. Paul's second full length solo show 'Saint or Sinha' received widespread critical acclaim at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was nominated for the if.comedy award (formerly the Perrier). Since then Paul has been in great demand, whether on TV shows such as Edinburgh and Beyond, World Stands up, Comedy Shuffle and Comedy Cuts, on Radio 4's Loose Ends and the Now Show, or his numerous contributions to Radio 5 Live and Talksport, as well as having recorded for Shane Warne's Ashes podcasts. 'Wonderfully inventive and intelligent’ (Evening Standard) 'One-liners are delivered with the crisp clarity of cut glass. Highly original' (Metro) 'Universal anecdotes as warmly delivered as you would find anywhere... it's a pleasure listening to him... Opinionated, witty and smart – Sinha is the certainly one of the comics Fringe goers should be flocking to' (Chortle) 'His confidence on stage was excellent and his talent for adlibbing and summoning gags off the cuff were very funny' (BBC Online).

Sooz Kempner did her very first stand-up gig in 2009 and in April 2010 entered the Musical Comedy Awards where she was named Best Newcomer. 2010 also marked her graduation from the Royal Academy of Music. In 2016 Sooz decided to be certifiably insane and take not one but two new solo shows to the fringe - Queen and A Bit Of A Character. 2017 sees her fifth solo show, Sooz On Film, going to the fringe and it's her most ambitious hour yet! 'Quirky style and knockout voice' (Chortle) 'Stand out performances from...Best Newcomer Sooz Kempner with her fantastically topical celebrity songs' (Three Weeks) '... a lot of fun... charmingly self-deprecating...' (Diva Magazine) 'A voice like an angel – could Sooz be the female answer to Tim Minchin?' (Funny Women).
