The Chase’s Paul Sinha would quit show and choose stand-up over TV career

“I’m part of a show that, luckily for me, is doing very well and is very popular,” he said.

“I didn’t know when I joined the show the degree that my life would be turned upside down.”

He went on to say: “If I had to choose it would be stand-up though because at the end of the day The Chase will go as long as it can, but it’s TV and TV is a finite thing.

“I don’t want to be at the whim of producers, put all your eggs in the quiz basket.
