More about Paul from the man himself, here’s a quick Q&A with Mr Eastwood…
Who inspired you to get into comedy?
Wow, that’s a tough one to start with. I just loved laughing and the way it’s such an instant hit to be able to make people laugh, growing up with The Two Ronnies, Only Fools and Horses, genius stuff but stand up wise i have to say Jim Davidson was the guy i loved, hiring his adult videos from the video shop. Naughty!
Do you remember your first ever gig?
Yes I did Brighton Trades and Labour club, 45 minutes. I did 20 and told every gag I knew, and got 20 minutes worth of the fee as well!
Tell us your all-time favourite gag…
An elderly lady had no money and didn’t know what to do so she wrote to God ‘please send me 200 quid to save my life’. The lads at the post office sorting room, saw this letter and had a whip round and got her 100 quid and sent it to her. Then she wrote to God again’ thanks for the 100 quid God , it should have been 200 hundred but it must have been those thieving idiots at the post office!
