Paul Chowdhry – ‘Live Innit’ NZ Tour

It’s a rare and joyous thing to see a stand up so vibrant and imperiously on top of his game” Mail on Sunday

UK comedian Paul Chowdhry is bringing his highly acclaimed Live Innit show for his first New Zealand show at SkyCity Theatre in April as part of the 2018 NZ International Comedy Festival with Best Foods Mayo.

Live Innit sees Paul Chowdhry addressing love in the cyber age, trolling the trolls and an unfortunate case of mistaken identity. Paul said the Live Innit tour has sold out almost everywhere (apart from the racist towns). I had to add extra dates so people stop abusing me online. This extension will be better than the one at my Uncles’ house in Southall in 1980.” This show was sold out across the UK including shows at the Hammersmith Apollo and The SSE Wembley Arena.

"It has seemed to happen without many people noticing, but Paul Chowdhry has become something of a big deal” The Guardian

Paul has appeared on the multi-award nominated hit show Taskmaster, presented by Greg Davies and Alex Horne and featuring guests including Frank Skinner, Al Murray, Katherine Ryan, Noel Fielding, and Mel Giedroyc. Paul appeared four times on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala, alongside comics including Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre and has also regularly appeared on shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Very British Problems and Celebrity Squares. As an actor, he has appeared in films alongside John Malkovich, Martin Freeman, Ewan McGregor, Anna Friel, Thandie Newton, Jerry Stiller, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Online, Paul is also a prolific presence on social media and his videos have been viewed over 35 million times on Facebook.

“Chowdhry’s laconic delivery and equal-opportunity observational comedy find him mocking almost every ethnic group, without resorting to tired cliché”
The Sunday Times
