Described as 'An expert craftsman'- (Steve Bennett, Chortle) George Lewis followed in the footsteps of of Jack Whitehall and Sarah Millican to win the Amused Moose Laugh Off at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe.
With his 'intuitive subversive humour... geeky self-assurance' (Arts Award Voice) and 'the sheer inventive strength of his writing' (Chortle) George has also won the Nando’s New Comedian of the Year Award, The Brighton Festival New Act of the Year Award, the Comedy Cafe New Act night and the Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian of the Year.
Since these wins, he has played to three thousand people at the Edinburgh Playhouse as part of the Comedy Gala, placed Runner Up in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, reached the final of the BBC New Comedy Award and supported Romesh Ranganathan on tour.
Join highbrow sketch group member Curly for a relaxing night in with his classic solo sketches such as "the one where he watches paint dry","counting buttons" and "the dull sketch". Hopefully he'll avoid any disruption from that anarchic and ridiculous Short character.
Expect high energy, shambolic sketches, musical parodies, big characters and an even bigger prop list.
“Quick changes and even quicker wit. The sketches are well written and excellently executed"
"fantastically good fun.”
"Sketch comedy duo don't let any opportunity for a laugh escape"
The award winning Paul F Taylor is a one of the UK’s most original and distinctive stand-up performers. His unique brand of humour fuses quirky offbeat one liners with surreal and observational flights of fancy to fantastical effect. Paul took home the title of the NATY New Act Of The Year in 2013.
As an avid football fan, Paul recently took part in BT Sport's Football Tonight with George Lamb. Paul has also recently finished shooting on the talking head's show, Animal Antics with Woodcut Media.
Paul has also achieved notable success as a screen writer and actor. Milk! that he co-wrote and starred in, was the ShortCom Jury Select Winner 2015, and was in the official selection in LOCO, Nashville, LOL, Shortwaves, Glasgow and London Short Film festivals. It has also won the Dead Short Film Competition at Leeds International Film Festival 2015.
Battlecock! that he also co-wrote and starred in, made it into the official selection at the BFI London Film Festival 2013.
Paul was one half of the double act, Helm & Taylor with Nick Helm. He is also half of the double act Short & Curly (with our very own Rebecca Shorrocks).
