Paul McCaffrey has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new acts around, winning both The London Paper and the Latitude Festival new act competitions in 2009. In 2011 Paul took his debut solo stand-up show, Saying Something Stupid to the Underbelly, to great critical acclaim, having previously appeared as part of the Big Value Comedy Show and the AAA Stand-Up Show at The Pleasance.
Paul has been heard on Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2) and is a regular guest on The Matt Forde Show (talkSPORT). He has also done studio warm-up for The Morgana Show (Channel 4) and That Sunday Night Show (ITV 1) and can currently be seen at some of the best comedy clubs in the country.
Paul recently filmed the stand-up spot on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3) and is currently involved in a new entertainment show being developed by Yalli Productions for BBC3.
Paul returned to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2012 with his new show Pills ‘n’ Thrills And Bellylaughs.
