After a several year absence, professional odd-ball Paul F Taylor returns to the Edinburgh Fringe with a supremely silly new show. Paul has been a man that has always thrown himself to the gods of chaos. Growing up; people often accused him of having his head in the clouds.
With recently being diagnosed with ADHD; it’s little wonder that he’s not had his feet on the ground. And now Paul questions his place in this world of distractions that is seemingly not built for people like him. As a new father he’s learning the hard way, having something that demands him to keep his focus, when he can’t, isn’t easy. Yet in this very serious world, Paul makes his case that we now and again, can very much do with having our Head In The Clouds by airlifting audiences into a world of whimsy.
Paul has appeared on Harry Hill’s Nite Club on Channel 4 and also the award winning BBC Radio 4 sketch show Please Use Other Door. He was nominated for best new show at the Leicester Comedy Festival 2017, and won the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Award in 2013. As an actor and writer, he has starred in many comedy short films that have won critical acclaim and awards on the festival circuit as a long time collaborator with the two time BAFTA nominated director Ben Mallaby; in films such as Milk, Battlecock! and Guilt Trip and his latest film Bleep by Ben Hyland being selected my multiple BIFA and BAFTA qualifying film festivals.
Along with his wife Rebecca Shorrocks, he is one half of sketch duo Short & Curly who enjoyed mass critical success at the Edinburgh Fringe as well as being nominated for Best Character and Sketch Act in the Chortle Awards. ‘should be required viewing for all wannabe surrealists’
