Paul Kerensa

ITV 'Take The Mike' Award Winner 2002
British Comedy Award Winner 2010 and Nominee 2007 and 2011 (writer)

Exiled Cornishman Paul Kerensa is known as BBC's go-to guy for 'gagging up' sitcom scripts, and has been on the writing teams of many successful sitcoms, including BBC1 hits Miranda, Not Going Out and After You've Gone, as well as sketch shows such as Dead Ringers, ITV's CGI UK and BBC3's The Wrong Door.

Paul has, as a ginger man, battled both prejudice and apathy, and emerged to win ITV's 'Take The Mike' stand-up competition in 2002. In the same year, he appeared in four new act finals at the Edinburgh Festival, including the televised BBC New Comedy Awards. He's since made repeated visits to the Edinburgh Festival with critically-acclaimed one-man shows which went to Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival.

He was awarded the Titheridge Prize as BBC Radio Entertainment's in-house comedy writer, and has also written for The News Quiz, The Now Show, and countless others.
