British Comedy Award-winning co-writer for BBC1’s Miranda, Not Going Out and Top Gear, among countless other shows, Paul Kerensa’s the in-demand comic who plays comedy clubs and cathedrals. He’s one of the few to have appeared both at London’s Comedy Store and on Radio 2’s Pause For Thought. A decade-and-a-half into his stand-up career, Paul’s one-man show has played to packed-out venues over the last few years, including the Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal Comedy Festival. Other recent broadcast writing work has included TFI Friday and ITV’s Miranda on Morecambe & Wise. He’s written several books including So a Comedian Walks into a Church, selected by The Independent as one of their top 8 comedy books for Christmas 2013.
As a stand-up, he’s known as a likeable, intelligent and creative comic, ever since winning ITV’s Take The Mike Award in 2002, and becoming a finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards & The Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards the same year. Since then he has gone on to work regularly all over the UK and Europe, including The Comedy Store, Jongleurs, and the Montreal Comedy Festival. Previous solo shows caused Chortle.co.uk to say: “Very funny, very clever, an excellent Edinburgh show” and call him a “wildly talented comic”.
