Aptly described by The Guardian as a "must-see" performer, Paul Thorne is one of Britain's most sought-after stand-up comedians. Since his first performances at the Edinburgh Festival, Paul has established himself as an assured stand-up, blending playful gags with spontaneous wit.
As well as appearing at major UK comedy venues and festivals, he can be seen weekly at London's Comedy Store as a member of The Cutting Edge team of comedians, performing topical material based on the week's news. He has also toured extensively with big comedy names like Jack Dee, Lee Hurst and Rory Bremner.
In addition, Paul has toured across Europe, and has even taken his unique brand of comedy as far afield as Hong Kong, Thailand, Canada, Singapore, China and Japan.
TV credits include regular appearances on Live From Jongleurs and The Stand-Up Show. He was also team captain on three series of The Montreux Award-winning comedy panel game, Bring Me The Head Of Light Entertainment (Channel 5) and has appeared on BBC2's I Love The 1990s. In addition, he recorded a comedy set for BBC Radio 4's Cabaret On 4.
Paul has developed an easy-going rapport with his audiences and this, together with his natural comedic skills, makes him an ideal choice as an After-dinner Entertainer and Awards Host.
