A trained medical doctor who is perhaps best known as the Sinnerman on the hugely popular ITV quiz show 'The Chase', Paul has been a successful comedian for a number of years. As a club comedian, he has played every major comedy club in the UK, performed in eighteen other countries across the globe, and been three times nominated for Best Club Comedian at the Chortle Awards, winning in 2014.

Paul has taken eight solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe, His 2017 show Shout Out To My Ex had a sell-out run and toured nationally, in 2018 The Two Ages Of Man followed suit. On Radio 4, Paul has appeared several times on venerable favourites Just A Minute, The Now Show, and The News Quiz; and has carved out a career in factual comedy — making programmes on cricket, the 2012 Olympics, the Magna Carta, and UK citizenship; and three series of the Rose d’Or-winning Paul Sinha’s History Revision.

Alongside Marcus Berkmann, he also plays for the South of England on the long-running Round Britain Quiz. On Radio 5 Live, he is a regular (and twice series champion) on the “feisty” sports panel show Fighting Talk. At the time of writing, Paul is ranked sixth in the UK at quizzing and, in November 2017, recorded his second top-ten finish at the European Quizzing Championships.

Paul was absolutely fantastic and very easy to work with, he was a real sport doing the quiz element and he beat us too which got an extra bit of money for charity! Please do pass on my thanks to him – he had the roof off at a time when I think everyone needed it!
Paul was amazing last night, he got a standing ovation, and had the audience in fits of laughter and many delegates commented how he was the best speaker we have ever had..
