“a brilliant natural comedian” Edinburgh Evening News
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. Since this time Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.
Paul has since had a consecutive succession of sell out shows at The Glasgow Comedy Festival and joined esteemed popular comedy-improv group Dance Monkey Boy, Dance! (also featuring Raymond Mearns), and has helped with the development of the group. In 2006 "The Boys" caught the attention of BBC Radio who recorded the show at the Glasgow Comedy Festival and since then, Dance Monkey Boy, Dance! have gone on to work under the watchful eye of the BBC to develop regular radio shows.
Now living in Essex (where his better half keeps the keys), Paul Pirie is a unique, vibrant comedian who appears regularly at: The Comedy Club (venues nationwide), Fymfyg in London, Bristol Jesters, Komedia, Comedy Café, Big Night Out comedy clubs in and around London as well as The Stand in Glasgow and Edinburgh, plus many more.
