Biography

Paul McCarthy works as an actor, writer, cabaret performer and comedian appearing  on stage and TV, and as a corporate entertainer.

He started out in the Melbourne University comedy revue Laminex On The Rocks during the second ever Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 1987. Since the late 80s Paul has lovingly tormented audiences with strange comic creations Mel Toupe, Noeline Dragge, Paul Cheese (of The Cheese Brothers) and, more recently, cabaret sensation Cliff Hanger, along the way receiving two Green Room Awards for Cabaret and an award for Best Cabaret Show for Melbourne Fringe 2002.

He has appeared at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival three times: twice in his Cliff Hanger persona (in Cliff Hanger In Catch A Falling Star and with Pastel Vespa in Cliff and Pastel Together Again At Last!) and in Michael Dalley’s Green Room Award nominated cabaret Intimate Apparel. Paul has since collaborated with Michael Dalley again on the cabaret Mademoiselle (2012).
