Paul Sinha: Looking at the Stars

5 Stars *****

Paul Sinha is labeled as a former doctor, a top twenty quizzer, an Asian comedian and openly gay, all of which he shares at the top of his hour.

But what is more relevant is that Paul is an extremely funny comedian, well educated, well prepared and extremely engaging, with the knack of making time evaporate so it seems. He does a full jam-packed hour, but it seems like less than half that.

A veteran of Fringe’s since 2006 and featuring in numerous radio and TV shows in smaller roles Paul is not what he calls ‘properly famous’ and a few

 encounters with some such people causes a lot of hilarity as part of his set, laughter as well as gasps of shock.

Sinha is often self-deprecating in his material, but has strong opinions on subjects as well. He is not afraid to express these thoughts, but there is no ranting, rather well reasoned and thought out arguments to back this up.

The world of Sinha is perhaps moving in the right direction, both in his personal life and maybe he is heading to be properly famous too. It couldn’t happen to a nicer man. Help him achieve his Fringe ambition why don’t you and see a top class comedy show at the same time.
