Paul Douglas is a comedy star on the rise. He won the NZ Comedy Guild Break Through Comedian of the year in both 2014 & 2015 and Joke of The Year in 2015.
After three successful solo shows at the 2014, 2015and 2016 NZ International Comedy Festival and guest appearances during the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival Paul is storming his way to the top of the live industry.
Paul has the love of his fellow comedians and was the winner of "The Green Roomer" Award at the 2016 NZCG Award voted by his peers.
A natural story teller Paul draws on his crazy life experiences to weave his yarns. Having been a Counselor at Camp America, A Ski Instructor, District Court employee and oh yeah, he found a dead body... for real.
A mixture of storytelling, observations, and the just plain ridiculous, Paul's Hamilton roots shine through in his easy Kiwi Bloke style. He is relatable and like a good ref will have you on-side in the opening minutes. He can dark take you to dark places and shine a bright torch on the funny - you know you are safe in his comedy hands.
