Summary

In his fascinating and hilarious BBC Radio 4 stand-up show, comedian and quizzer Paul Sinha shines a light on the important historical moments that you never got taught at school and explains why so much of what you did learn is wrong. There will also, as ever, be puns.
He explains how Portugal's invasion of Morocco in 1415 led directly to the 2014 World Cup; how the 1909 launch of an Austro-Hungarian submarine prevented Dr Zhivago from winning an Oscar; and tells the story of the black woman who refused to give up a seat on an Alabama bus and ended up changing the law - no, it wasn't Rosa Parks.
Paul Sinha is an acclaimed stand-up who was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy award for his show Saint or Sinha?. He frequently appears on The News Quiz, The Now Show, and Fighting Talk, and he is a resident 'chaser' on the ITV quiz show The Chase. He wrote and starred in The Sinha Test (2011) and The Sinha Games (2012) on Radio 4 and in 2013 had his own four-part series, Paul Sinha's Citizenship Test.
Paul Sinha's History Revision was the winner of the 2016 Rose d'Or Award for 'Best Radio Comedy'.

Good, but not great 4*


The description says ‘fascinating and hilarious’ and Paul Sinha’s is often reminding listeners that he is a comedian. To most of us he’s that guy from ITV’s ‘The Chase’. Okay I admit it is fascinating, but I wouldn’t call him a natural comedian, just a brainy guy. These three series are good, but not great. Yes I would listen to more series, but saying it’s ‘hilarious’ is just an empty promise and unduly raises expectations of the listener.

Okay reading this back sounds overly harsh, I don’t mean to be as I did enjoy it. :)
