Paul Foot - Most Wanted

A shambolic, improvised rant - running time 54 minutes, 33 seconds. Inspired by watching his dad's glasses fly off upon tripping over the pouffe, and other harrowing lounge-based scenes.

"An hilarious camp combination of pedantry, bluff, innuendo and surreal non sequiturs. Rarely, if ever, has this reviewer seen an audience laugh as hysterically hard or long."  The Scotsman

Paul explains how to upset someone by rejecting a gift or, alternatively, by simply smashing one of their vases. Also, the pit-falls of flushing a meat pasty down the lavvy.

"he has charm, a delightful touch, original material and a 2.2 in mathematics... stardom surely beckons"   Telegraph

Paul Foot launched his comedy career by winning the Open Mic Award, and went on to take a nomination for Perrier Best Newcomer the following year, as well as winning the BBC Best New Act Award. Now he's back in Edinburgh with a new show.

"someone special"   Graham Norton
"simply brilliant"   Caroline Aherne
