A lifetime of curiosity and learning informs Paul’s comedy but now also ranks him as one of the UK’s finest quizzers, as a general knowledge expert on the ITV quiz show, The Chase.
17 December – 23 December
Headliner: Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue / Compere: Dave Johns / Opener: Jen Brister
This hilarious twosome tour the country, blasting their guitar and stylophone stylings, wowing rooms with super slick prop manipulation, dazzling jaded eyes with sandal based choreography that remains inimitable. Venturing as far afield as The Falklands and Oman, they provide spiritual uplift to the armed forces. Their latest foray is into radio comedy/drama. A 1930s murder mystery based in Brighton and a frankly silly retelling of the Jack the Ripper tale, have so far been forged in the red hot fires of their imaginations.
24 December & 26 December
Headliner: Eric Lampaert / Compere: John Fothergill / Opener: Daniel Muggleton
27 December – 30 December
Headliner: Dane Baptiste / Compere: John Fothergill / Opener: Eric Lampaert
