Paul McDaniel is a Northern Irish comedian so funny that during one of his sets a promoter laughed so much she feared she would go into labour. A regular performer at Glasgow and Edinburgh’s top comedy nights, he has honed a distinct act that is always surreal and often just plain bonkers.

Tipped by Wow 24/7 as "one of the most underrated acts on the Scottish circuit", Paul has shared the bill with comedy greats such as Frankie Boyle, Fred Macaulay and Michael Redmond, and is a member of the award-winning cult sketch group CHUNKS and its Saturday night offshoot STITCHES.  

He has numerous Edinburgh Fringe shows under his belt, has brought several shows to the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and also finds time to present a monthly online radio show HAVE A WORD with fellow comedian Sandy Bouttell.  This prolific performer writes and gigs relentlessly, always working on new material and trying to push the funny forward.
