Overview

With over 30 years’ experience and hundreds of shows to his credit, Paulus is one of the UK’s best-loved cabaret artists.  His warm, witty shows are always self-curated and he writes all his own links, jokes and stories.  He also regularly hosts cabaret and burlesque events on the London scene and across the UK.

In 2018 Paulus became known to millions of television viewers across the country, during his stint as the hard-to-impress judge on award-winning BBC1 talent show format, ALL TOGETHER NOW for two series and a Christmas Celebrity special. He has also made television shows for Sky & C4.
