Paul Foxcroft: Debut



It's Paul Foxcroft's second debut stand-up show! Or the first one, just in the wrong order. You decide!

Paul's stumbling rapidly towards his 40th birthday and has some pretty big questions; What's the best exercise? Who are we supposed to listen to? When is he supposed to become a conservative and can it be avoided? Are there any simple answers out there that aren't nonsense? Also, how many spiders are there? (That last one isn't as important as the others, but seriously. What's up with spiders?)

Let's find out as a team.

And by 'as a team', we mean 'by coming to this show and listening for an extended period of time'. This isn't an escape room.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 12, 2019    Fest

Quirky tales of dating disasters and being Bon Jovi'd.

Paul Foxcroft calling his second show Debut is typical of the wilful contrariness and talent for crossed wires of an ex-theatre technician who's electrocuted himself no fewer than three times. Suddenly single for the first time in 12 years, he's been released back into the wilds of the dating game, surprised to find that the rules have changed in the intervening period. But with the usual peril of a comedian being reviewed, he's no longer in charge of how he's perceived, especially how he relates to women, with a routine shop enquiry provoking repulsion.

You can't blame him for his confusion though. This apparently mild-mannered, unthreatening man has attracted the attention of US Homeland Security, his reaction to their raised guns a study in ever-so-English eagerness to please. And his ongoing interactions with women have become a social minefield, from sort-of-dating an unavailable fellow comic, who's at least given him permission to talk about it; to losing a bizarre battle of wits with the toddler daughter of his improv partner Cariad Lloyd. At least he's stolen her canny tactic for whenever a conversation gets too awkward.
