The Chase's Paul Sinha headlining Empire Theatre comedy show – Halstead Gazette

A SELECTION of comedians featuring one very well-known face is coming to a comedy club near you.
The Empire Theatre in Halstead is hosting a night of laughs with some top comedians, headed by Paul Sinha.
Best known for his regular appearances and quizzing skills on ITV’s The Chase, Paul is a trained doctor and has been a successful comedian for a number of years.
Arguably most recognised as an avid quizzer, Sinha, alongside Marcus Berkmann, 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, and, in November 2017, recorded his second top-ten finish at the European Quizzing Championships.
As a club comedian, he has played every major comedy club in the UK, performed in 18 other countries across the globe, and been three times nominated for Best Club Comedian at the Chortle Awards, winning in 2014.
His 2017 show Shout Out To My Ex had a sellout run and toured nationally, with 2018s The Two Ages Of Man following suit.
Other funny men on the evening include English Comedians of the Year Finalist Ben Briggs, BBC Comedy Award Nominee Adam Beardsmore, and host of the Laugh Lab Tom Alban.
A spokesman said: “Join us as we bring you some of the biggest names in comedy, hand-picked artists you’re sure to love and stars of tomorrow you’re yet to discover.
“Sit back, enjoy the show and get ready to laugh like your socks off. This is stand up at it’s best.”
The event is on Friday, September 30. Doors open at 6.45pm for a 7.30pm show start.
