Paul Sinha Meets Bobby Seagull

Live on Stage in London

Stand-up comic, trained GP, quiz champ: Paul Sinha is a man of many talents. He joins fellow quiz legend Bobby Seagull to share the hilarious story of his unconventional life.

Today Paul Sinha is an award-winning comedian, a quizzing mastermind and a happily-married husband. But it hasn’t always been this way.

As a boy, Paul struggled to find his place in a world where he didn’t quite fit. Who was he? A smart young man with the world’s knowledge at his fingertips? A traditional Bengali son, destined for a career in medicine he didn’t want? A gay man who couldn’t quite come out? A man on a self-destruct mission?

He joins us to tell the hilarious story of how he became the man he is today. Live in conversation with fellow quizzer Bobby Seagull, he joins us to share the tale of his lifelong quest for happiness: a story of love, family, comedy, disaster, and the joy of general knowledge.
