PAUL MCCAFFREY has taken a month out of his busy daily routine of signing for his neighbours’ parcels while they’re at work and trying to stop his cats from using the internet to perform his new show PAUL or Nothing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Come and join PAUL trying to make sense of parents, parking tickets and shaved balls…

PAUL MCCAFFREY’s 4th year school report was signed off with a simple two word comment from his head of year: I DESPAIR. This set the precedent for most of his early adult life. Before Starring in BBC Three’s Impractical Jokers and establishing himself as an award-winning stand-up, PAUL had a series of hilariously unfortunate mishaps at several menial jobs. For example, during his short spell as manager of a London pub, he was chased round the bar by a local nutter wielding a glass ashtray and during his time at Kestrel pest control he was given the prestigious job of driving around the south of England in a purple van looking for buildings with bird shit on them that might want bird proofing.

PAUL is a regular on UK television screens and is the star of BBC Three’s hidden camera show Impractical Jokers. He’s performed stand up on Russell Howards Good News (BBC3) Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2) and Alex Zane’s Funny Rotten Scoundrels (London Live TV).

What the press has said about Paul McCaffrey:

“A total natural, his storytelling is utterly unique, never anything less than gut-bustingly hilarious” GQ
“A disbelieving glance from him can destroy a room. Surely a pick for the next series of Live At The Apollo, McCaffrey simply has funny bones.” The Shortlist
“Born to be a Comic” Jay Richardson, Scotsman
