Multi-award winning stand-up comedian Paul Chowdhry brings latest show to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall

More news, no ads


A multi-award winning stand-up comedian, actor and writer brings his latest show to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall tonight.

Paul Chowdhry has embarked on a new stand-up tour this autumn, Family-Friendly Comedian, which follows hot on the heels from his last tour, Live Innit.

To support and promote regional comedy, Paul’s opening act in each city he performs will be local to that area, giving them the chance to show their talents to a wider audience.

After barely surviving the pandemic and with two pent-up years of killer material, Paul will tackle the UK’s handling of covid-19, why the rules of six only worked for white people, England football fans, Tom Cruise’s helicopter and Naked Attraction in the Middle East.

Paul said: “We’re living in troubled times, so once again I must put my cape on and save humanity.

“It’ll be Family-Friendly but not in a Michael Jackson kind of way. See you on tour.”

Earlier this year Paul launched his new podcast, The Paul Chowdhry PudCast, interviewing celebrities on life’s turning points.

Guests on the podcast have included Russell Howard, Simon Brodkin, London Hughes and Stewart Lee.

As an actor, he recently starred alongside Patrick Dempsey in the ten-part Sky Atlantic TV series Devils, which is soon to return for a second series, and featured in Disney’s Cruella alongside Emma Stone.

Paul is a prolific presence on social media, with his videos being viewed over 50m times on Facebook alone.

On television, Paul hosted Stand Up for the Week (Channel 4) and has twice headlined Live at the Apollo (BBC One/Two).

He was also a much-loved contestant on the third series of multi-award-winning hit show Taskmaster (Channel 4/Dave), appeared four times on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala, alongside comics including Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre, and ha regularly appeared on shows such as The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Sorry, I Didn’t Know (ITV) and more.

His last show, Live Innit, won Best Live Event 2018 at the ITV Asian Media Awards and saw Paul win the Comedy award at the Eastern Eye’s Arts, Culture & Theatre Awards in 2019.

He was also crowned Comedian of the Year at the Asian Voice Political & Public Life Awards in the same year.

Tonight will be the final night of Paul’s Family-Friendly Comedian tour of 2021. Extra dates have been added for next year.
