Paul Sinha: Saint or Sinha?
COLOR="#ff0000">if.comeddie award nominee
Gay, Asian, doctor & comic Paul Sinha tells his hilariously
frank tale of dealing with society's prejudices and his own fears,
vices and inadequacies. Not for the faint-hearted.
Two years ago, Paul Sinha made his Edinburgh debut with an
Looking honestly into his fears, feelings and failings has
His new-found voice stems from the fact that he's open gay
Because he doesn't match the supposed gay photofit, he often
The nub of the show is his cowardice in not confronting this,
Sinha is refreshingly balanced in his outlook. He's a pragmatist
The hour is packed full of gags, most of which come as a sucker
Saint Or Sinha could have been a simple attack on the ignorant
I had the pleasure of sharing a bill in Brighton with Mr Sinha in March and what I saw was 40 minutes (I timed it) of non-stop, superbly crafted material that was just awe-inspiring. I commented that he's almost ready for Edinburgh and he said that is what he's aiming for. So I am very pleased, and impressed that his finished show has been nominated because if it is anything like the act that I saw then he should have won
Very scripted show and nothing left to chance. Sounds like a bad thing but really enjoyed him and his take on life. Wonder how he'd deal with hecklers etc but who cares really when his bits are consistantly good.
Saw a preview in Manchester. Awe inspiring stuff. One of the tightest, funniest hours of stand up comedy I have ever seen. Honest, touching and occasionally brutal enough to elicit an "oooh" from the most hardened of audiences. Mr Sinha is a master of his craft, go see this show and you will not be disappointed.
