Disappear down the rabbit hole of a fool’s mind. Marvel at imaginative, logic-defying, left-field ideas spoken from an award-winning comedians mouth! 'An enticing, dizzying prospect, who whips through a welter of daft, Harry Hill-like ideas and diversions and chucks characters around with the agility of the Pajama Men' (Independent). 'An impressive knack for both observational wit and quirky flights of fancy' (Evening Standard). 'Eclectic mix of proper gags, gleeful flights of fancy and enjoyable awkwardness' (

This is a really good show.
Next year this is the first act I'll be looking forward to see.

9 days in to the Fringe... and this is the stand-up show that has most impressed me. Didn't know 'im, now looking out for him. When you turn up to something that is genuinely fully-formed, it is a genuine treat.
Go see.
Note: Parents you could also take a smart 11 year old. He has skills - so when he sees them in Stand 2 (one of the few venues with eye-contact) I can tell he'll delete the very rare F bomb and lose nothing as the material is universally strong. Thoroughly entertaining, though how he got that bloody thing on the plane I'll never know.

This is the best show Paul has done yet - and that is saying something. Silly, sharp, daft and clever. You really should go.

Brilliant one hour show and every second was fantastic. Paul is not only funny, he is a good actor as well (looking at you colonel who fought in 'Nam).
It was my first show I've been to at my first ever fringe so the bar for all the other shows is set very high.

Lots of dates to catch this show, make sure you do, highly recommended.

This show was a gem of a discovery! Definitely one to see as it takes you on a journey that goes in all different directions of weird and wonderful. Paul’s jokes ranged from the quick and snappy to the thought provoking and dramatic, with acting that is truely Oscar worthy. Haha. I loved his mix of themes within the show so that the audience truly got to know this Odd man but embraced the fact that...aren’t we all a bit odd? ***** 5 stars from me. The Stand 2 is just 1 minutes walk down the hill from Harvey Nichols so very easy to find and great lunchtime slot too!

The Skinny (4/5 stars) 114 days ago

Paul F Taylor is worried about being silly. So much so, he’s looked up synonyms and is very perturbed by the results: foolish, mindless, nonsense. Surely he has not wasted his career on something so insubstantial? Surely there is more value in silliness? Well, Taylor should rest easy, for Odd...

Chortle (3/5 stars) 120 days ago

If you had one thing to say about Paul F Taylor, it would be that he’s committed and energetic. Even a dodgy microphone couldn’t stop him. His performance is relentless; from the moment he steps on stage to the moment the show ends, he bombards the audience with off-kilter observations and...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 122 days ago

Paul F Taylor cuts an eye-catching figure with his oversized tache and retro leisure wear and the imagery that he works into his flights of fancy is just as striking as we get an hour filled with warring sheep, talking hands and anthropomorphised disease detection dogs.Taylor is one half of...
