Comedian Paul Sinha was born in the UK to Bengali parents and the family medical dynasty. Whilst studying medicine in the 1990s, Paul took his first steps on the stand-up comedy circuit.
He pursued both careers and at the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe earned a nomination for the highest accolade in live comedy the Edinburgh Comedy Award.
Shortly after his nomination, Paul hung up his stethoscope to become a full-time comedian.
Paul is a familiar voice on radio with appearances on Radio 4’s Just A Minute and The News Quiz and on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Fighting Talk. His own Radio 4 series Paul Sinha’s History Revision won the Rose d’Or for radio comedy in 2016. He’s also appeared on television on BBC’s QI and Would I Lie to You? and as a competitor on Dave’s Taskmaster.
A lifetime of curiosity and learning informs Paul’s comedy but now also ranks him as one of the UK’s finest quizzers. This has led to yet another concurrent career, this time as a general knowledge expert on the award-winning ITV quiz show The Chase.
