Paul Zerdin


Following his Las Vegas residency at the legendary Planet Hollywood with his hit show “Mouthing Off” and a starring role in the celeb-studded London Palladium pantomime Cinderella, America’s Got Talent Winner Paul Zerdin makes a special appearance at the Big Mouth Comedy Festival.

Paul made his TV debut in In 1996 as the first outright winner – by over 100,000 votes – of LWT’s The Big Big Talent Show, hosted by Jonathan Ross. Since then he has appeared on countless TV shows including Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up, ITV1’s Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford, Tonight at The London Palladium, The Princes Trust Gala and three appearances at The Royal Variety Performance! His auditions for America’s Got Talent have racked up millions of views on YouTube and Paul is currently developing TV projects in both the UK and the US.

“Every now and then you stumble across a finished article, a show so polished it shines. Paul Zerdin: Sponge Fest is one of these shows. A ventriloquist at the top of his game, Zerdin is so sure of his skills and so in control of his material that he isn’t just performing – he’s showing off, clearly having as much of a laugh as his audience.” THE SCOTSMAN

“Paul Zerdin is in a league of his own. That he’s the UK’s most accomplished and well-known ventriloquist is beyond doubt. What’s most impressive about his latest show is how rich a canvas he creates from his honed skill. You can’t help but to be won over with this set which is not just polished but very well-constructed. What this show does is to invoke a precious, childish sense of joy. The conclusion is pure audience-gratifying magic.” TIME-OUT

“Zerdin is a powerful stage presence. Having been a regular TV guest, surely its only a matter of time before he is fronting his own show.” THE HERALD – SCOTLAND
