During Paul’s 2002 residency he researched a number of phenomena and organisations in the Lakes, from local psychics to the Beatrix Potter Museum. Paul developed a rock opera called Tony’s a Winner, based on a press cutting found in the Stan Laurel Museum in Ulverston which outlines how the man who used to do the voiceovers for the Generation Game went to America with Isla St. Clair & Larry Grayson and met and married Stan Laurel’s daughter. The resultant musical was performed by Paul and a group of others live at each Roadshow venue.
Paul also performed at Lawless, Grizedale’s 2002 car boot sale busking in the corner with his band.
