Paul Currie - WIP

About Paul Currie - WIP

This is a brand new work in progress (WIP) one person comedy show. An absurdist “non mainstream” stand-up show that will look at depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts and the inner musical workings of the average ironing board. I’ve suffered from mental health from about the age of 5 and many nervous breakdowns and comedy & clowning I find is the best way to confront these issues we all face.

For me, I think it’s a subject not properly spoken about enough in comedy or in society or in the world, enough. I want this show to help smash or at least crack the stigma we all have of mental health through the absurdist platform of comedy.’ – Paul Currie, Jan 2022

TCOGLIMSKTMTTASITFS is the sister show to Paul’s 2021 Edinburgh Fringe “Sell Out” show “TEET” that garnered many 4 & 5 star reviews.
