Paul Chowdhry is a critically-acclaimed stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. He has appeared on Ents24’s list of the UK’s top 10 most popular comedy acts.
Paul embarked on his third national tour Live innit in 2017, continuing on into 2018. It has already been spectacularly received, selling out two Hammersmith Apollos in less than a week, with more dates being added due to immense audience demand.
On television, Paul hosted the final series of Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week, and has performed two headline slots on Live at the Apollo (BBC 2), as well as making four consecutive appearances on Channel 4’s annual Comedy Gala. He brought his uniquely hilarious interpretation to tasks as a competitor on series three of Taskmaster (Dave), and has made regular appearances on 8 out of 10 cats (Channel 4), Very British Problems (Channel 4), and ITV’s Celebrity Squares.
His first sell-out national tour, What’s Happening White People, (2012) was spectacularly received, firmly cementing his place within the British comedy mainstream. After securing a DVD deal with Universal Pictures, the show was recorded at a sold-out Hammersmith Apollo, and went on to reach number five in the charts. It was subsequently aired on Channel 4 three times.
His second tour, PC’s World (2015), built on this success, and was extended three times due to enormous audience demand. It finally closed after a run of 100 sold-out shows, having sold approximately 100,000 tickets nationwide.
As an actor, Paul’s film roles include Swinging With The Finkels (2011) alongside Martin Freeman and Jerry Stiller, Colour Me Kubrick (2005) with John Malkovich, and Rogue Trader (1999) with Ewan McGregor and Anna Friel.
