The Chase star Paul Sinha says ‘time is running out’ in Parkinson’s battle

GMB: Paul Sinha talks about his Parkinson's disease

Paul Sinha, who is best known for playing chaser The Sinnerman on ITV quiz show The Chase, has shared a health update following his sad Parkinson’s disease diagnosis.

The comedian, 53, has shared his belief that his days are numbered in the stand-up world, as he gets “more tired” each year. 

Paul was diagnosed with the degenerative neurological disorder back in May 2019.

Despite his worsening symptoms, however, he has explained how he is determined to keep performing for as long as he can. 

Speaking to the RHLSTP podcast ahead of his Edinburgh Fringe show Pauly Bengali, he opened up about his struggles.

“I have no idea how long I’m going to be a stand-up for, because I get more tired with every passing year. I just want to go up and do a show that is fun,” he said. 

“Without wishing to sound bleak, my time is running out,” he added. “I don’t know to what degree my time is running out.

“It could be five years, it could be 10. I just want to go, ‘I’m enjoying myself’. I think it’s important to end your career with no regrets.”

Paul also recently appeared on Good Morning Britain, where he spoke about incorporating his Parkinson’s disease into his stand-up.

“I have a very positive outlook to the whole thing which is good for your health. And will help slow down the disease,” he explained.

“I was diagnosed in May 2019 and Parkinson’s has been a big part of my comedy shows. I’m the only comedian at Edinburgh this year to have a deteriorating neurological disease.”

According to the NHS website, Parkinson’s disease is “a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.”

The main symptoms of the disease include involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body, slow movement and stiff and inflexible muscles. 

Most people with Parkinson’s start to develop symptoms when they’re over 50, with men being slightly more likely to develop the disease than women.
