Bearcat Comedy at The Viaduct: The Viaduct pub, Hanwell, London, 2018
AFC Croydon Virtual Comedy Night: Online: 2021
One of the best things about watching comedy (having seen a lot) is not knowing for whatever reason who the act is and being pleasantly surprised about how good they are. Ignorantly, I had never heard of Stefano Paolini and was therefore delighted to watch his fifteen-minute routine of comedy and impersonations at Bearcat Comedy in October 2018. Being a second-generation Italian immigrant, Paolini’s comedy features differences between his parent’s culture and his own. His accents and impersonations (particularly of John Motson and Al Pacino) were inspired and he even finished his set with beatboxing.
Paolini was a comic guest at the AFC Croydon Virtual Comedy Night in February 2021. The act was an inspiration loved by the audience. Paolini is a real comic find and he deserves to be seen and enjoyed by as many people as possible.
