- Simon Callow
Paul's solo stage version of THE PAT HOBBY STORIES - F. Scott Fitzgerald's hilarious and touching tales of
Hollywood - has garnered rave reviews in London, Dublin, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Paul does a lot of other stuff: Voiceovers, Singing/Songwriting, Screenwriting/Editing, Sportscasting, Radio Presenting, Teaching & Directing. He is one of the Scottish Friends of the Jenin Freedom Theatre, a group of Actors, Directors, Playwrights, Poets and other Concerned Humans who support this remarkable Palestinian Theatre and Acting School, and he loves playing Spolin Theater Games as well as guitar & Appalachian dulcimer, and - I'm afraid he does cabaret rather often...!
