Paul Henri de Leeuw is a Dutch television comedian, singer and actor.
De Leeuw gained national fame in the late eighties and early nineties with television shows for broadcasting company VARA. Though satire was only a part of these shows and much of its humour was essentially harmless, he came into publicity with satire about Dutch show business personalities who were often ridiculed. Besides, many obscure musical acts were featured in his shows, many of which managed to gain national fame after they had been in De Leeuw's show. VARA has since continued his shows apart from a few interruptions, often with considerable success.
In the early nineties, Paul de Leeuw also had some shows celebrating the new year. In the 1993-1994 show he satirized the new commercial television station RTL 5 by announcing another new station, "RTL 6". This led to a lawsuit by the RTL company, who demanded that De Leeuw withdraw his joke.
He and his husband, Stephan Nugter, have adopted two children: son Kas and son Tobey.
