I had a fab time at the Edinburgh Fringe. We went to see Paul F Taylor’s show “The Pauly Show:Episode 1″ on the last day after we had finished Beast of the East. The basic premise is Mr Taylor creates his own sitcom and involves the audience as characters while setting the scene, referencing everything from Cheers to Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Below he discusses his fab show! You can learn more about him here- www.gloriousmanagement.co.uk
How did you come up with the show?
It came to me in a dream, when I fell asleep on the sofa during an episode of Friends.
Who are your comedy influences?
Eddie Izzard, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Tony Law, Demitri Martin, Steven Wright and Mitch Hedberg to name just a few!
Did you enjoy the Fringe ?
Yes, loved it! The audience reactions to the show have been very amusing. I like to make my audiences work, I’ve enjoyed the different way people react.
What advice do you have for other comedians?
Be honest with yourself, don’t take it all too seriously and don’t judge yourself too harshly. You’re just a monkey trying to make other monkeys smile, thats all! Now chill out and have a banana!
If you could have anyone on a superhero team who would you pick?
I quite like a tough doorman for my show. So I guess I would opt for Judge Dredd. Hecklers beware!
Who would play you in the film of your life?
Ooooh I dunno…Someone who will be able to replicate my awful awkwardness and who has a pot belly. I dunno Barry from Eastenders? or Brad Pitt? One of them I guess.
Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
Hopefully in a mirror still. Failing that in the reflection of a pond. Hey… I look older!
