Paul Sinha is a qualified GP and international stand up comic of many years standing, having performed in all major comedy clubs in the UK, as well as China, Auckland, Singapore, the Middle East, South Africa, Netherlands and Germany.
Sinha was educated at St George's, University of London. While at medical school, he developed a taste for the stage in St George's annual Revue and refined his comedy as editor of the medical school Newsletter. Sinha began performing stand-up while working as a junior doctor in hospitals in London and King's Lynn. His early material drew on his sexuality and ethnicity with a high pun concentration. In 1999 he reached the final of the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year where he was runner-up.
After several years of combining touring with his nascent medical career, Paul Sinha's breakthrough came with his second solo Edinburgh show, Saint or Sinha? which earned him widespread critical acclaim and an if.comeddie nomination in 2006. Since then Paul has been in great demand, whether on TV shows such as Edinburgh and Beyond, World Stands up, Comedy Shuffle and Comedy Cuts, on Radio 4′s Loose Ends and the Now Show, or his numerous contributions to Radio 5 Live and Talksport, as well as having recorded for Shane Warne's Ashes podcasts.
Paul Sinha has appeared several times on BBC Radio 4, on shows including The News Quiz, The Now Show, Loose Ends , 28 Acts in 28 Minutes, Shappi Talk and Just A Minute. His keen interest in football and cricket has led to appearances on Radio 5 Live, most notably Fighting Talk.

Paul was a huge hit – very funny, well-pitched for the audience, and very accessible and he even stayed for drinks afterwards which everyone really appreciated. He made it a great night for everyone and we are all really pleased with the success of the event which was largely down to him.
Paul was great. Funny, personable and with time for everyone. We have had a lot of positive feedback regarding him as the host from people attending the awards.
