"King of Cabaret"

The Stage

Paulus (aka Paul L Martin) has been working in the world of variety entertainment for 30 years since he curated his very first ‘variety show’ in his home town of Littlebourne near Canterbury, Kent at the age of just fifteen in aid of Leukaemia Research Fund.

After 4 annual shows and a total of £5,500 raised for various charities, Paulus moved to London and trained in musical theatre at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, where he also won a singing scholarship. Since then he has performed in musicals, plays and on television but a constant and growing passion for cabaret, vaudeville, revue and music hall has dominated his career, whether it be as a performer, promoter, agent or producer.

Drag has been a recurring theme in Paulus’ work, cutting his teeth at the world famous Madame JoJo’s in 1999 as Trinity Million. Other drag creations include the mermaid Coral Reef.  He made his New York debut in 2005 at both Don’t Tell Mama and Birdland and debuted in Australia in 2006 at The Butterfly Club in Melbourne.  Martin has also performed in the Supperclub, Rome, La Charlotte de L’Isle, Paris,  The Sugar Club, Dublin and in various venues in Berlin as well as cabaret clubs up and down the country.

As an actor, Paulus has played Sylvia St. Croix in the UK premiere of the musical ‘Ruthless’ for which he won Musical Stage’s ‘Best Actor in A Musical award; was in the original cast of ‘Beautiful and Damned’ choreographed by Craig Revel-Horwood; was invited to join the Dundee Rep for their 10-year anniversary season playing The Beadle in Sweeney Todd, and created the role of Philip Salon for the Boy George musical Taboo in its workshop stages.
