Biography

Paul King is a writer and director. He works in television, film and theatre, and specialises in comedy. He graduated from St Catharine's College, Cambridge University with first-class honors in English in 1999. There he met Richard Ayoade, Matthew Holness and Alice Lowe, and went on to direct them at the Edinburgh Festival in "Garth Marenghi's FrightKnight" (nominated for the Perrier Award in 2000), and "Netherhead" (Perrier Award winner 2001). King worked as Associate Director on the subsequent TV transfer, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, a six-part series for Channel 4. In 2002, King garnered another Perrier Award nomination for directing Noel Fielding's Edinburgh Festival show, "Voodoo Hedgehog". Paul King is also the director for The Mighty Boosh. He has directed all three series (earning a BAFTA nomination as Best New Director in 2004), as well as their live tour shows in 2006 and 2008. King was originally brought in after the director of the pilot, Steve Bendelack, was unavailable to direct the first series. He also directed Matt Lucas and David Walliams' 2011 airport mockumentary Come Fly With Me. King wrote his first feature film, Bunny and the Bull, in 2009, which he also directed. The film stars Simon Farnaby and Edward Hogg, with cameos from Noel Fielding, Richard Ayoade and Julian Barratt.
