Colchester Fringe Comedy Showcase
Paul Merryck (ChelmsfordEngland)

Essex Comedian Paul Merryck hosts a 60 minute comedy showcase featuring 4 great comedians from the Fringe and the rest of the world (probably Essex). It'll be a laugh packed hour that will provide a taster of some of the other wonderful and varied comedy shows on at the Colchester Fringe. Not to be missed.

Paul Merryck is an Essex based comedian who has been making a name for himself as one of the more original and outrageous character acts on the UK comedy circuit. Feckless, amoral and utterly unabashed, the middle-aged chancer he portrays, disdainfully deconstructs the disaster that is his life, in a hilarious sequence of short gags and tall stories.

Paul regularly appears professionally in London for Angel Comedy, Bearcat Comedy, Downstairs at The Kings Head, Hampstead Comedy Club and Monkey Business Comedy amongst others, and for many other promoters outside London including Mirth Control, Funhouse Comedy and Suffolk Punch Comedy. He regularly MCs at TNT Comedy in Kentish Town and Funny for Nothing in Borough. He also manages and comperes a monthly professional night at a Canteen in Chelmsford, called A Comedy Club.

‘The Essex bloke is something of a geezer …plenty of showbiz patter….
his set proves very effective…. gag-focussed delivery…. high laugh rate…. you’d think that the spirit of Mike Reid is alive and well'  Steve Bennett – Chortle

Paul Merryck’s good-natured, gag-laden banter made for a fun, uplifting set with lots of charm' Paul Golder – Phoenix FM
