Virtually living on tour for the past 18 months, Paul came face to face with real life Aussies who inspired him to deliver this new show. “Housos is, for me, part of a tradition in Aussie comedy that is being eroded in the current climate of nanny state political correctness,” F  More info...

    An Audience With Paul Gascoigne

    Often referred to as the most naturally gifted English footballer of his generation, there can be no arguments that Paul Gascoigne is a true sporting icon. Known affectionately by his nickname, Gazza played with a smile on his face and the ball at his feet. His ability to run with the ball at speed and fend off tackle after tackle was a sight to behold.

It is generally considered true that England’s only two near misses since 1966 are both directly attributable to Paul Gascoigne’s immense cont  More info...
