PAUL SINHA is 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 2016 show Shout out to my Ex had a sell out run and is now touring nationally.
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, with shows on cricket, the 2012 Olympics, Magna Carta, UK Citizenship, and three series of History Revision, which won the 2016 Rose D’or for best radio comedy show. He also plays for the South of England, on the long running Round Britain Quiz. On Radio 5, he is a regular and twice series champion on feisty sports panel show Fighting Talk.
"Well on the way to earning himself a place in the pantheon of comedy greats"
"This is what good-stand up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate"
MARTIN MOR comes from Northern Ireland, and after a successful career as a circus performer, he turned his attention on the unsuspecting comedy circuit.
With over 30 years' experience as a professional performer, Martin has established himself as one of the UK’s most popular and in-demand comedians.
Martin has performed successfully at events of all description; from the Hammersmith Apollo to a show for the inmates of an Italian prison, from comedy clubs to performing in some of the most unique, and unusual locations.
In April 2016 Martin was part of a team that set the world record for the highest altitude comedy show by performing at 5,300m/17,600ft at Mount Everest basecamp.
Very much the comedian’s comedian, Martin has been the support act of choice for; Frankie Boyle, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jasper Carrot, Patrick Kielty, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan, and once Tina Turner.
As well as devising and performing his own BBC television show, he has written jokes for some of the biggest names in British comedy.
"Martin is the act that has influenced me most, the UK comedy circuit would not be the same without him."
"Off beat, unusual, outrageuos."
