Never miss another 'Paul Foot' show
Words: Paul Foot
Paul Foot's recent shows and tours have garnered a string of 5 star reviews and successive Barry Nominations at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
Described by Chortle as 'Inspired, surreal and incomprehensibly funny', he is a true original, challenging comedic convention at every turn and delighting his connoisseurs. A BBC New Comedy Award and Daily Telegraph Open Mic winner, most recent UK TV credits include '8 Out 10 Cats' (Channel 4), 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks' (BBC2), 'The Alternative Comedy Experience' (Comedy Central) and 'Russell Howard's Good News' (BBC3).
'It's baffling to me that Paul is not a household name in this country. His routines are like jazz clusters, loose hammocks, choked to the brim with jokes and ideas (Noel Fielding)
'One of the highlights of this year's Fringe... Will leave your sides sore and your face wet with tears without every really fully appreciating why' (Edinburgh Evening News)
'Subversive and surreal... like a cult classic, a relic from the past, a rare exotic bird, he's special' (The Daily Express).
Camp crusader whose pedantry, bluff and innuendo-ridden rants have made him an audience favourite.
He has previously been voted BBC Comedian Of The Year. He is also an Open Mic Award winner and Perrier Newcomer Nominee.
So he's pretty good then!
