Comedian goes from living with his gran to performing sell out shows

Comedian goes from living with his gran to performing sell out shows

by Henry James (December 2018)

LAUGH Out Loud Comedy Club returns to the Atkinson on Saturday, January 5 at 8pm.

On the bill will be Paul Pirie, Barry Dodds, Njambi McGrath and the MC will be Damion Larkin.

Paul Pirie began his stand-up career after giving up acting to pursue the funny man that lies within, quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit as long ago as 2004.

It should be pointed out that at the time he was living with his gran, having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz.

Soon after that he was awarded runner up in the prestigious annual awards for Scottish Comedian of the Year making him the (second) funniest comedian in Scotland.

Since then he's gone from strength to strength and right now is on fire enjoying the best comedic form of his life.

A spokesman for Laugh out Loud Comedy Club said: “Paul is a brilliant natural comedian, packed full of energy, he uses every ounce to maximum effect with superb delivery.

“Audiences are never more than a line away from a great pun, insight or well crafted punch line, delivered with a ferocity that makes his humble beginnings on the Scottish circuit seem such a long time ago.”

Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his skills as a stand-up, and he is now one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.

A confident and intelligent comedian who makes it his mission to work and entertain his audience, his material has been described as superbly individual which delivers a refreshing burst of laugh out loud comedy that leaves audiences in raptures.

It has been said he has a physical, theatrical presence on stage, and that his sharp, rapid-fire comedy onslaught is packed with highly entertaining material, which blurs the lines between real-life anecdotes and flight of fancy.

It’s been observed that he channels the late Robin Williams at his most excitable.
