Paul Martin - Life of a Travelling Showman
July’s meeting of Elsenham WI saw Paul Martin, a ‘travelling showman of the 21st century’, enthrall his audience with tales of his life on the road.
Dressed as a circus ringmaster, Paul entertained a packed Memorial Hall in Elsenham with his story – one that started with doing comedy sketches for a charity fundraiser as a teenager, continued through drama school in London, went on to performing as the drag queen ‘Trinity Million’ and now continues with a whole variety of showbusiness related jobs. One night he might be a compere at a cabaret and burlesque club, another night he’ll be training cabaret singers, another he’ll be performing his newly acquired skill of playing the ukulele and another night, he’ll be talking to a group of ladies at a village WI! He created and now produces the London Cabaret Awards and has a host of TV, musical theatre and cabaret credits.
Moyra Jackson, President of Elsenham WI said ‘Paul is a very talented singer and raconteur as well as being pretty good with his pink ukulele. We were delighted to welcome him to Elsenham and our members and guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening.’
