Paul Sinha is a stand-up comedian, but you might know him as ‘The Sinnerman’, from ITV’s tea-time quiz, The Chase. You might also know him if you’ve been to a Norfolk A&E or visited a London doctor’s surgery. You could have seen him on Mastermind, The Weakest Link or University Challenge, Edinburgh and Beyond, World Stands up, Comedy Shuffle and Comedy Cuts, on Radio 4’s Loose Ends and the Now Show, or his numerous contributions to Radio 5 Live and Talksport, as well as having recorded for Shane Warne’s Ashes podcasts
But what might be news to you, is that for well over a decade Paul has been making his name in the world of stand-up comedy. He may be many things; quiz geek, doctor, Gemini, sports fanatic, and, according to Jim Davidson, ‘an Indian poof’, but first and foremost, he is a stand-up comedian. A bloody great stand-up comedian.
