Paul Mayhew-Archer: Incurable Optimist

About Paul Mayhew-Archer: Incurable Optimist

The debut stand-up hour from the multi award-winning co-writer of The Vicar of Dibley.

Paul’s co-written or worked on many much-loved comedy shows – I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, Old Harry’s Game, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Spitting Image and Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot starring Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench.

Now Paul has Parkinson’s but he’s still laughing. Following his BBC One Documentary, Parkinson’s: The Funny Side (for which he won the Grierson Award for Best Documentary Presenter), a triumphant debut at London’s Comedy Store, and a sold-out month at the Edinburgh Fringe, here’s a one man show about the therapeutic power of comedy. Paul is not contagious but he is worth catching.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Paul Mayhew-Archer: Incurable Optimist are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
