About Paul

A British-born writer who spent years living out of luxury hotels and soaking his liver in booze.”  – THE DAILY BEAST

Paul Bradley Carr has written more than a dozen books, including The Upgrade (“A testament to the virtues of debauchery… uproarious and brilliant.” – WIRED), Bringing Nothing To The Party (“Utterly endearing. Completely addictive reading.” – PAPERBACK CHOICE, THE PRESS ASSOCIATION ), and Sober Is My New Drunk. (“For a cautionary tale, everybody cites Paul Bradley Carr.” – THE SUNDAY TIMES)

His weekly “Not Safe For Work” column appeared in the Guardian. He has also written for the Wall Street Journal, The Sunday Times, Private Eye, The Daily Telegraph, National Geographic, Huffington Post, and countless other publications on both sides of the Atlantic.

“Carr has made a reputation as one of the feistiest writers on the beat. His [public] spats are legendary, as are his bust-ups with former employers including Arianna Huffington and AOL.” – THE GUARDIAN

He has written for television (Channel 4), and radio (the BBC), and for two years was host of the nightly NSFWLIVE radio show (“a fun and wildly popular restbite from nightmarishly boring podcasts…” THE NEW YORK OBSERVER)

“The columnist [and] enfant terrible has been summarily sacked from practically every outfit he’s worked for, including companies he started.” – ZDNET
