Oldham-born-and-bred comic who epitomises the laddish, male perspective on the world. After cutting his teeth on the Manchester comedy circuit, he is now a national act, appearing across the country and occasionally on the BBC. Not for the easily offended. 'His tall tales can lead anywhere on any given night' (The Times) 'A rare mixture of wit and charm' (The Guardian) 'Probably the quickest I’ve ever seen, certainly the funniest' (The Big Issue).

Paul Pirie began his stand-up career after giving up acting to pursue the funny man that lies within, quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit before lauching onto the UK comedy scene and even appearing in Ikea's April 2011 comedy based TV advert. It should be pointed out that when Paul started stand-up in 2004 he was living with his Gran, having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz. Since this time Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit. 'Fizzing with energy and spewing out one-liners like he had just scoffed a dodgy prawn, Pirie is a man we will be seeing more of' (Daily Record).
