Paul Foot on the launch of his new show ‘Dissolve’ in the North East
Paul Foot is taking his show Dissolve to three venues in the Northeast; one in County Durham, one in Newcastle and one in Northumberland.
In his new show, Paul will break new ground both as a comedian and as a person. He has never been so vulnerable, honest and happy.
Paul is fresh from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala and can’t wait to embark on his UK tour this autumn.

Paul Foot told The Northern Echo: “This show is a little different, it’s more biographical. It’s a show about mental health and overcoming obstacles and the last 30 years of mental health services and how they’re disappearing. Oh, and it should make people laugh.
“In the past, when I’ve spoken to journalists about a show I’m doing and asked them what it’s about, I usually have problems because it’s usually just a hodgepodge of different things, so I’d say, ‘Me talk about it.’ “A little bit, and then there’s a little bit where I talk about it,” but there’s not much of a thematic structure. This show is different from me and I hope people enjoy it.
“It’s about the fact that despite the difficulties that come up in life, there’s always something to laugh about, that’s just real life.”
Dissolve is co-written and directed by Paul’s longtime collaborator and accomplice, comedy writer Aaron Kilkenny-Fletcher.

Paul has a “theory, which isn’t really a theory,” that all people who watch stand-up comedy performances should try stand-up comedy.
He also had some advice for aspiring comedians who may be reluctant to pursue a career in stand-up due to mental health issues. Paul said, “I think comedy is for everyone.”
Paul will bring his comedy show to The Stand in Newcastle on October 5th, The Witham in Barnard Castle on November 21st and the Alnwick Playhouse on November 22nd.
