Paul Chowdhry is a multi-award-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and writer.

His latest tour, Family-Friendly Comedian* (*No Children), was extended in 2022 for another 42 dates nationwide after a sell-out first run in 2021. This follows Live Innit, a record-breaking, thrice-extended tour that saw Paul perform five nights at the Hammersmith Apollo and become the first British-Asian stand-up to sell out the 10,000-seater, Wembley Arena.

The show won Best Live Event 2018 at the ITV Asian Media Awards, the Comedy award at the Eastern Eye’s Arts, Culture & Theatre Awards 2019, and Paul won the Comedian of the Year award at the Asian Voice Political & Public Life Awards 2019. 

Live Innit was subsequently released, in August 2019, as an Amazon Prime original special, and became the second most-watched Special in Amazon’s catalogue.

As an actor, Paul stars in one of the leading roles alongside Patrick Dempsey in the ten-part international TV series Devils, produced by Sky Italia. On TV, Paul has hosted Stand Up for the Week (Channel 4), twice headlined Live at the Apollo (BBC One/Two), and was a much-loved contestant on the third series of the multi-award nominated hit show Taskmaster (Dave/Channel 4).

In 2021, Paul launched his podcast The Paul Chowdhry PudCast. Each episode features a different special guest talking to Paul about pivotal turning points in their lives. The podcast has over 1 million total listens and features appearances from Greg Davies, Danny Wallace, Lucy Beaumont, and more. Paul is a prolific presence on social media, and his videos have been viewed over 50 million times on Facebook alone.

His wealth of experience and quick audience work make him the ideal choice to perform after-dinner cabaret and host awards ceremonies, perfectly tailoring his comedy to the individuals and the organisation and giving your delegates a personalised performance to remember.
