Having made his comedy debut in 2007 Paul is an established pro on the UK comedy scene. In his years on the circuit he has just about covered the entire country as well as making time for a tour of english-speaking venues in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Over the course of his career Paul has racked up an impressive list of accolades including a nomination for 'Best Full Length Debut Show' at the Leicester Festival, Juice Comedy club's 'Performer of the Year', the West Midlands Comedy Awards 'Most Improved Act' and the West Midlands Comedy Awards 'Best Joke'. 2022 saw Paul take his seventh solo hour "Well Groomed" to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it garnered both critical and audience approval including being longlisted for Neurodiverse Review's ADHD Comedy Award alongside Josie Long and Colin Hoult. Further to his obvious skills in stand-up comedy, Paul is also an accomplished cartoonist with three published collections to his name: “Contrived Setups To Niche Pop Culture References”, “Due To A Clerical Error In Reality” and his latest publication "But Doctor, I AM a collection of comic strips by Paul Savage". Paul also co-hosts 'The World Cup of World Cups' podcast alongside fellow comedian, James Cook.
