Paul Chowdhry is a regular on Channel 4′s late night topical comedy show Stand Up For The Week where he has been impressing viewers and audiences week-on-week with his unique take on international multiracial issues.
Seen by many as the UK's number one Asian comedian, with over three million YouTube hits, Paul Chowdhry has distinguished himself as one of the most talented and popular comedians to have recently emerged.
Inspired by comedians such as the late Richard Prior, George Carlin and Sam Kinison, Paul is one of the few comics with the ability and diversity to effortlessly straddle the urban and main stand-up circuits as an international headline act – with his highly charged dry observational humour tapping into the multicultural diversity of contemporary Britain.
One of the most sought after comics on the UK comedy circuit, Paul has recently embarked on a twenty-five date sell-out UK tour, including two sell-out nights at London's Indigo2. Paul's talents extends past the realms of stand-up and has also starred in numerous acting roles in high profile theatrical film releases including: Swinging With The Finkles alongside Martin Freeman and Jerry Stiller, Colour Me Kubrick with John Malkovich, Rogue Trader with Ewan McGregor and Anna Friel and It Was An Accident alongside Thandie Newton.
In addition to Stand Up For The Week, his varied TV appearances includes: BBC1′s weekly topical politics show This Week presented by Andrew Neil, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, presenting MTV's Comedy Weekend, plus appearances on The World Stands Up and The All-New Comedy Store for Paramount Comedy Channel and USA's Comedy Central.
