Performing as Vladimir McTavish and Bob Doolally
"needle-sharp observations on the British pysche" - Guardian
Known throughout Britain both as highly accomplished stand-up, Vladimir McTavish, and frighteningly accurate character act, Bob Doolally, Paul is one of the most widely respected comedians on the UK circuit.
Paul"s most recent project - a regular live topical comedy show - reveals something of what audiences can expect in his stand-up act. As Vladimir McTavish, he serves up a delightful feast of social observation and topical satire, seasoned with his caustic wit and presented via a platter of breakneck-pace patter. In addition to his headline appearances throughout the UK, Ireland, Holland and at the Norwegian Comedy Festival at Stavanger, Vladimir has appeared on a number of popular TV shows. These have included "The Empire Laughs Back" (BBC1), the football game show "We"re On Our Way To Wembley" (ITV) and "Velvet Cabaret" (BBC Radio Scotland). He "is nothing short of superb" Scotsman, and "gleefully indulgent" Guardian.
A legend in his own liquid lunchtime, Bob "The Gob" Doolally is now recognised as one of the most original and unique character comedy acts in Britain. Retired football manager and ex-player who now hacks out a living as an after-dinner speaker and third-rate media pundit, Bob has been lauded by both the public and the press "what Al Murray is to publicans, Bob Doolally is to football punditry"" Guardian.
Bob has appeared in four sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows, two national tours of Scotland, performances at comedy festivals throughout the UK andnumerous TV and radio shows - including "Under The Moon" (C4) and R5"s live coverage of the 1998 World Cup. Whether appearing on the public stage or at private corporate functions, Bob Doolally is firmly established as one of the most popular cult comics in the country today."offensive" Sunday Herald "Droll and witty" Scotsman
