Paul Foot is an English comedian known for his musings, rants, ‘disturbances’ and apparent aversion to pop culture.
Foot was born and raised in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, and has a younger brother. He studied mathematics at Merton College, Oxford. It was during his studies he first started performing stand-up. As of 2011, Foot has refused to discuss his years at Oxford or former pursuits as a mathematics student. Graduating from Oxford in 1995, Foot was head-hunted by a computer software company in the run-up to the dot-com bubble, however he loathed the industry: “I had to read manuals on HTML and just write websites from scratch. None of us really knew what we were doing”. He started to pursue a career in comedy by doing open mic slots at various venues.
He is openly gay. He has been described as “a little bit vegetarian”, but has said that occasionally he does return to eating meat due to nutrition-related health issues. He has stated on his video log that he has face blindness.
