HILARIOUS; NOBODY MAKES ME LAUGH LIKE PAUL TONKINSON. SIMPLY ONE OF THE GREATEST COMICS AROUND. GO SEE HIM!” Michael McIntyre

A sensational live performer, Yorkshire man, marathon runner and former (double award-winning) Time Out Comedian of the Year, Paul Tonkinson has long upheld his esteemed reputation as one of the finest stand-ups the UK has to offer. With a unique and distinctive style, Tonkinson is noted for his effervescent physicality and skillful impressions, which bring alive exuberant, tender comic reflections on love, family and the day-to-day idiosyncrasies of 21st century living. A plethora of first class material, combined with tremendous charm and irrepressible, infectious energy make for quite a formidable talent.

“EXCELLENT…EXTREMELY TALENTED…BRILLIANT” Time Out

“CHARISMATIC, COMBINES THE VISUAL TRICKERY OF A LEE EVANS WITH THE IMPROVISATIONAL SKILLS OF PAUL MERTON. BRILLIANT CHARACTERISATIONS, HIS FACE, A WONDER OF CONTORTION” Independent

Paul will be supported by Laura Smyth winner of The Funny Women Awards 2019, described as a “force of nature” (Steve Bennett) and is a relative newcomer to stand-up comedy but “sounds as if she has been doing it all her life.” (Bruce Dessau).

 

A native East Londoner and Mother of 3 she has made a big impact on the comedy circuit, including her TV Debut on Jonathon Ross’s Comedy Club, adverts, and voiceover work.
