The multi-award winning comedian presents his brand new show. Tired of the goose, Swan Power is here. Paul opens his beak and explores topics including a potential solution to the problem of online trolling, the massively underwhelming sex drive of pandas, and Eamonn Holmes. Plus an unwarranted attack on the RNLI and a full re-enaction of the 1992 film Titanic (severely abridged). Live by the swan, fly by the swan. P.S. there is no mention of swans in the show
“Like a rare exotic bird, he’s special” The Daily Express
“Sublime, original, brilliant” The Independent
“Something of a comic genius” The Sydney Morning Herald
Paul Foot has made numerous television and radio appearances, the most recent of which include 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), ABC Australia’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Breaking The News (BBC Radio Scotland) and Dave News for Dave at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe. In 2019 he also made a triumphant debut at Glastonbury to which he returned in 2022 and played the comedy tents of many of the most prestigious summer festivals. Paul has also appeared on Would I Lie To You? (BBC 1) and excerpts of his many much-loved appearances on Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC 2) have garnered over a million views on YouTube. He has been nominated twice for the Best Show at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, has been voted Best International Act at the Sydney and Perth Comedy Festivals, and has performed at the Just For Laughs Montreal Festival.
