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. Since leaving his career in medicine, Paul has carved out one of the most varied careers in entertainment you could imagine. A former British quiz champion and best known as one of ITV’s resident boffins on The Chase, the “Sinnerman” has performed stand-up comedy across the globe; and won the Best Club Comic Award at the Chortle Awards, the Rose d’Or Award for Best Radio Comedy and Best International Guest at the New Zealand Comedy Festival.
The host of his own ITV game show Paul Sinha’s TV Showdown, Paul has also appeared on the BBC’s Would I Lie to You? and QI, on Dave’s Comedians Giving Lectures, and competed, as a “memorable” contestant, on Taskmaster. Alongside his many authored series for BBC Radio 4, Paul is a frequent guest on The News Quiz and team member on Round Britain Quiz. He was the first double-series champion of BBC 5 Live’s Fighting Talk, and, in recent years, Paul has appeared across television and radio as a passionate spokesperson for those with Parkinson’s disease – his own Parkinson’s diagnosis not denting his busy schedule.
‘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
‘An exceptionally skilled stand-up…. truly wonderful’ The Scotsman
‘Full of insight and delight’ The Times
