“Hello!  I would just like to let you know that my boys had a really great time this morning with Paul at Letchworth Arts Centre. He instantly put them at ease and shared his enthusiasm with the group. These workshops are such a good idea and a lovely way to build confidence in children. Please pass on our thanks. Kind Regards”
Dawn Bithrey (Happy parent!)

“The workshop had just the right mix of industry information, tips, hints, structured help and anarchy.

The students loved working with a professional comedian and because of his advice and positive approach they felt they were able to push the boundaries a little more and therefore got great artistic reward from the work they produced. 

Paul’s workshop had enthusiasm, wit and energy – he inspired the young people to be brave, to dare and to be funny. He never asked of them anything he would not have done himself and he led by example. 

Paul can tailor his workshop to your needs and I can heartily recommend him. This workshop was totally original and inspiring for the students – they loved its freedom, its anarchy and it’s inclusiveness and I loved allowing them the freedom to express themselves in an alternative way. And although they were scared witless they all performed and achieved success.

It was a great day – one that neither the students nor I will forget in a hurry.”

“It was great fun and the pupils achieved such a lot in a relatively short time. All the participants I spoke to this morning said they were really pleased they had taken part. 

What I particularly liked about Paul’s workshop was the way he created a good atmosphere for the pupils: he was funny and friendly throughout, gaining their trust from the moment they came into the room, but he also made sure they completed the tasks he set them as well as they could; he made them take the exercises seriously. Together these things enabled them to produce some really strong comic material and it was not too daunting at all for them to perform at the end of the workshop. The group could have carried on writing and performing for much longer than there was time for!”

Florence Corran, English Teacher at St. Edwards School, Oxford


I praise Paul’s commitment to the project… The outcomes the young people received were brilliant and I really hope we get to work together in the future”
