Late Night Gimp Fight burst onto the Sketch Comedy circuit in November 2008, performing for two nights at the Hen and Chickens Theatre. It went so well they decided to do an entirely new show each month for the next seven months and then took a 45 minute show to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2009.
The following year they took their first full-length show up and were nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. They were also nominated for a Chortle Award, which they went on to win by public vote.
They have taken a brand new show to Edinburgh each year since then, and have played three Sold out runs at London’s Soho Theatre. They are directed by Soho Theatre’s Artistic Director Steve Marmion.
Paul gave up his dream of being a proper actor to become a gimp.

His clients clearly don’t do that much research.
Every group needs a good-looking member, and Late Night Gimp Fight
