SCOUSE comic Paul Smith has rescheduled his appearance at the Grand Theatre in Leeds and will now perform next year on June 9.

Over the last 12 months Paul Smith has established himself as one of the UK’s biggest selling stand-ups on the circuit by winning Liverpool’s New Comedian of the Year competition and headlining at the M&S Bank Arena.

He is a familiar face as the resident compere at Liverpool's Hot Water comedy club, and always has the audience eating out of the palm of his hand.

He subsequently built up a national following through social media and is performing at larger venues and arenas across the UK.

When he performed last year at York Barbican he showed his skill at handling heckling with blunt expertise.

The dad-of-two began his warm-up with a bit of banter with the front-row, making fun of their names, jobs and flirting with the women.

According to reviewer Maxine Gordon, the show should have come with an X rating.

She said: "The swear words and sexual references poured down as heavy and unrelenting as the rain outside.

"Marital disharmony is a running theme, but Smith is at his best when he is sharing more intimate parts of his life, such as looking after his autistic eldest son, being a secret eater and concocting ways to nip out of the house for a burger."
