All-round showman par excellence
Paulus has been seen on our screens in ‘All Together Now’ alongside Spice Girl Geri Horner and comedian Rob Beckett, as well as making television programmes with Mary Portas for Channel 4 and appearing as a talent show judge on Sky Living. In 2020 Paulus will be celebrating 30 years in entertainment, and 20 as a teacher and mentor to other artistes. His life-long love of cabaret and connections with that world continue, and he is also embarking on a brand-new project celebrating the work of the late, great Victoria Wood in his new show ‘Looking For Me Friend‘.
Paulus has been an entertainer since the age of seven (so, going on fourteen years now…). He has performed in and out of drag to literally tens of people up and down the country and in some venues he was actually asked to.
He is in demand worldwide for crimes against theatre since his performances in Paris, Berlin, Melbourne and New York in the early Noughties, and has graced TV screens as a mentor to pensioners, singing judge, lookalike/weight-loss adjudicator, and a badminton player with no shuttlecock.
Cabaret, Theatre and TV work not being enough, Paulus now tours branches of Dunelm in his thought-provoking and immersive one-man show ‘Can I Get A Refund?’ which one bystander called ‘Incessant’.
