The debut stand-up hour from the multi award-winning co-writer of The Vicar of Dibley. 

“An entertaining hour with an engaging raconteur who refuses to take his illness too seriously” ★★★★★ The Wee Review

Paul’s co-written or worked on many much-loved comedy shows – I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Old Harry’s Game, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Spitting Image and Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot starring Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench.

Now Paul has Parkinson’s but he’s still laughing.

Following his BBC One Documentary, Parkinson’s: The Funny Side (for which he won the Grierson Award for Best Documentary Presenter), a triumphant debut at London’s Comedy Store, and a sold-out month at the Edinburgh Fringe, here’s a one man show about the therapeutic power of comedy.

Paul is not contagious but he is worth catching.

Directed by Katie Churchill and presented by Berk’s Nest, in association with Casarotto Ramsay & Associates.

“I know Paul as ‘F***wit’. He’s always been very funny, but now he has Parkinson’s, he’s ‘F***wittier’” Dawn French
“Paul isn’t just one of the country’s funniest writers. It turns out he is also an annoyingly brilliant performer” Josh Widdicombe
“So funny – and true, in the way only comedy can express” Rory Bremner

“A master of story telling, timing and delivery… an expertly conceived and delivered hour of comedy” ★★★★ Fringe Review
“Charmingly funny & warmly delivered… The well-worked punchlines should appeal to every age” ★★★★ What’s On London
“Eloquent storytelling reminiscent of the likes of Terry Jones and Peter Sellers… sets the room into fits of laughter” ★★★★BroadwayBaby
