About the Speaker...

A public speaker with over five years experience, and previously an entertainer for over thirty years, my talks are all highly theatrical with full costume, make-up and live music from my ukulele, Betsy and my vocals.
I am a registered speaker with 4 Women’s Institute Federations, plus I have entertained many others over Zoom. Talks also delivered to U3A, Rotary, Townswomen’s Guild, Salvation Army, Tangent and various ladies luncheon clubs. Always excited to meet new groups and entertain more people.

Some of your audience may recognise me as the hard-to-impress TV Talent Show Judge from the BBC1 award-winning Saturday night show ALL TOGETHER NOW, where I appeared for two series alongside comedian Rob Beckett and Spice Girl, Geri. I have also made television programmes for C4 and SkyLiving.

At the higher end of the price scale, my talks are perfect for anniversary and Christmas celebrations or groups getting together for a larger event. No tech or slides required. A cup of tea always appreciated. I look forward to meeting you soon! Paulus

About Paulus's talk...

With a life-time in the theatre, my 45 minute presentations are part educational talk and part show-biz entertainment.
All my talks are based around my life and work in theatre and television and include songs performed live on my Ukulele.
Full costume and make-up as standard.
Get the gossip from backstage in the world of shiny TV competitions, and learn what’s its like to traverse the world of theatre for thirty plus years from someone who’s done it – and is still doing it!
The arts are important – let’s support them.

Duration: Approximately 45 mins.

Equipment: Nothing necessary but if you have a PA and mic set up it’s a bonus.

Paul is happy to travel within 30 miles of his home in Croydon, London.


My fees start from £170 inclusive of travel costs and last 45 mins.
I am happy to also judge competitions and facilitate Q&A sessions on top.
Please note I am London-based and do not drive, so I must consider how far away you are and appreciate a lift to and from the nearest station (if its far away!)
*Groups of more than 60 may incur a larger fee.
