Comedian Paul Sinha was born in the UK to Bengali parents and the family medical dynasty. Whilst studying medicine in the 1990s, Paul took his first steps on the stand-up comedy circuit. He pursued both careers and at the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe earned a nomination for the highest accolade in live comedy, the Edinburgh Comedy Award. Shortly after his nomination, Paul hung up his stethoscope to become a full-time comedian.
Paul is a familiar voice on radio and face on television with appearances on Just A Minute, The News Quiz, Fighting Talk, QI, Would I Lie to You? and Taskmaster. His own Radio 4 series ‘Paul Sinha’s History Revision’ won the Rose d’Or for radio comedy in 2016. A lifetime of curiosity and learning informs Paul’s comedy but now also ranks him as one of the UK’s finest quizzers. This has led to yet another concurrent career, this time as a general knowledge expert on the award-winning ITV quiz show, The Chase.
★★★★★ “One of those comedians who makes you realise the power of stand-up comedy and the respect it deserves as an art form.” Yorkshire Post
★★★★★ “This is what a good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate.” Chortle
★★★★★ “Well on the way to earning himself a place in the pantheon of comedy greats.” The Scotsman
From Dudley! Before becoming a comedian Percival was a welder, but disillusioned with the harsh realities of construction, Percival began work as a comedy speaker in the 1990s.
Till this day his comedy remains sharp and observant, drawing on his own experiences and highlighting some of the hardest aspects of working class society, creating comedy with his straight talking and upfront attitude.
Lindsey Santoro has taken the circuit by storm since making her debut in 2014. Still one of the best hidden gems on the circuit Lindsey, who hails from Birmingham, has in her short time earned a place in the finals of both The English Comedian Of The Year and The Funny Women competitions.
