The debut stand-up show from the multi award-winning co-writer of The Vicar of Dibley

"An entertaining hour with an engaging raconteur who refuses to take his illness seriously"

????? The Wee Review

Paul’s co-written or worked on many much-loved comedy shows – I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Old Harry’s Game, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Spitting Image and Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot starring Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench.

Now Paul has Parkinson’s but he’s still laughing.

Following his BBC One Documentary, Parkinson’s:The Funny Side (for which he won the Grierson Award for Best Documentary Presenter), a triumphant debut at London’s Comedy Store, and a sold-out month at the Edinburgh Fringe, her’s a one man show about the therapeutic power of comedy.

Paul is not contagious but he is worth catching.
