Paul McCaffrey has recently appeared on major UK tours with two of Britain’s foremost stand ups, Sean Lock and Kevin Bridges – playing to more than half a million people nationwide and to great critical acclaim. Next Spring, he’ll hit the road with his own, debut tour I THOUGHT I’D HAVE GROWN OUT OF THIS BY NOW.
Until fairly recently, Paul McCaffrey enjoyed the pleasure of being told regularly that he was ‘older than he looked’. With his entry into the 40s decade, however, that privilege has well and truly left him with a huge bang. Time has finally caught up with him, and his body is ravaged!
Yet like all good ravers and Brit-poppers of the 90s, Paul has trouble digesting this information. He and his generation seem to have a massive problem accepting that they are actually quite old, and his latest show examines the awful situation Paul and his peers find themselves in. Want to party all night? You can’t, your body can’t handle it. Fancy a dance? No, you’ll have a heart attack. Time for an all-day drinking session? Yes, but only if it’s drinking Horlicks. Where oh where has the time gone?
TV-wise, Paul has starred on BBC3’s Impractical Jokers and Russell Howard’s Good News, and Comedy Central’s Stand Up Central. An accomplished radio presenter and guest, Paul has recently been heard on talkSPORT, Absolute’s The Alternative Vote and Rob Beckett’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Football, and BBC Radio 2’s Russell Kane’s Whistlestop Tour. He also presents The Paul McCaffrey Show every Saturday morning, on Jack FM.
Paul is an award-winning comedian (Latitude New Act of the Year, London Paper/Soho Theatre London Comic Competition) and headlines at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. He has performed four critically-acclaimed Edinburgh shows, as well as major music festivals such as Reading, Leeds, V Festival, Bestival and Latitude.
