Paul F Taylor is a one of a kind comedian. An instantly watchable performer with the craftsmanship more established acts could only dream of. He is known for his inventive offbeat observational humour and his playfully engaging delivery.
Nominated as GQ Magazine’s comedian of the week, Paul has a reputation of being a superb writer who gleefully combines leftfield one liners with astute observational comedy. Taylor is an original and hilarious act who always leaves audiences begging for more.
Alongside his solo standup, Paul is also half of the double act "Helm and Taylor" (with our very own Nick Helm) who reached the final of the Laughing Horse New Act Of The Year Competiton 2009.
Despite being relatively new to the circuit, Paul is already securing gigs at some of the most respected clubs in the country notching up stage time at The Comedy Store, Comedy Café, Komedia, The Frog & Bucket, The Stand and many more. He has gigged for CKP, Mirth Control and has even ventured to Munich to entertain the crowds at the English Comedy Club.
In 2009 Paul supported Lucy Porter on her tour, MC’d the Laughter Film Awards and travelled to Edinburgh to perform in AAA Stand Up with Bound & Gagged at the Pleasance.
Paul also features as part of a comedy sketch double act with Rebecca Shorrocks, 'Short and Curly' which had a popular Free Fringe Show at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012.
2013 has started promisingly for Paul, as he won the prestigious New Act Of The Year Award on January 27th!

"For a genuinely distinctive set, look no further than Paul F Taylor, who talks about everyday observations but with a wonderful edge of surrealism – most notably in his section comparing TV chefs to his own methods of cooking. Chuck in some strained, yet inspired, wordplay and the occasional vivid description, and you have an act that’s odd without overlooking the punchlines. He was a worthy winner, although the NATY organisers, perhaps wary of the elitism of that word, instead crowned him ‘top of the bill’." - Chortle 2013 (New Act of The Year Showcase)
"Buzzing energy from Taylor" The List
"The show is brilliant... Taylor's jokes are excellent." Snipelondon.com
"Paul F Taylor is one of the most exciting acts on the circuit and one of the few that never fails to make me laugh, no matter how many times I see him. A whirlwind of energy, he applies impeccable attention to detail to his beautifully crafted one liners. Paul is a superb writer and his keen eye for the absurd in everyday life creates some wickedly funny and astute observational comedy.Whenever I see more established acts struggling on shows such as Mock The Week I think of Paul F Taylor: his quick witted temperament and ingenious one liners would bring the house down week after week." James Mullinger's Comedian of the Week- GQ Magazine
“nicely off-beat lines” Chortle
“A dry and relaxed performance from Paul F Taylor also won over some fans - with a gag involving the French, horses and glue probably taking the title of best of the evening.” Newbury Today“Gleeful and insistent silliness” Three Weeks
