Winchester Comedy Festival

Winchester Comedy Festival: Autumn Gala 2021

An evening of comedy with Paul Sinha, Nathan Caton, Mike Cox and James Gill (MC).

Paul Sinha comedian

Paul Sinha

Comedian Paul Sinha was born in the UK to Bengali parents and the family medical dynasty. Whilst studying medicine in the 1990s, Paul took his first steps on the stand-up comedy circuit. He pursued both careers and at the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe earned a nomination for the highest accolade in live comedy, the Edinburgh Comedy Award. Shortly after this, Paul hung up his stethoscope to become a full-time comedian.

Paul is a familiar voice on radio with appearances on Radio 4's Just A Minute and The News Quiz. His own Radio 4 series Paul Sinha's History Revision won the Rose d'Or for radio comedy in 2016. He's also appeared on television on BBC's QI and Would I Lie to You? and as a competitor on Taskmaster.

A lifetime of curiosity and learning informs Paul's comedy but now also ranks him as one of the UK’s finest quizzers. This has led to yet another concurrent career, as a general knowledge expert on the ITV quiz show, The Chase.

Nathan Caton comedian

Nathan Caton is one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. Gigging since the tender age of 19, over the last decade he has established himself both as a circuit headliner, and a name on TV and radio.

Within his first few years on stage, he had picked up various accolades and coveted plaudits including the Chortle Student Comic of the Year award and Broadcast Hotshot and written and starred in a pilot for Paramount Comedy (now Comedy Central) entitled The Nathan Caton Show. Since then Caton has gone from strength to strength, wowing audiences at comedy clubs up and down the UK, and on his numerous TV and radio appearances, with his delightfully charming blend of personal and political comedy.
