“A stand-up able to create engaging personal warmth” – (Fringe Report)
“Cornish comedy goddess” – (Plymouth Herald)
“It’s all too easy to see why she’s being touted as one of UK’s sharpest, especially in the all encompassing deftness in which she disposes of two persistent gabblers stage right” – (The Duck Egg Comedy Club)
“A genuine babbling brook of Cornish humour” – (Druid Camp)
HEADLINER: NOEL JAMES
Noel James, after 28 years on the comedy circuit, became an overnight sensation with his semi final appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, in 2018. Noel is an experienced, very original, comedian, based in Swansea, Wales. He has performed as a headliner at most Comedy Clubs in the UK. He has told jokes at major festivals, – Edinburgh, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds – as well as touring extensively abroad (Dubai, Shanghai, Berlin, Cape Town, Canada). His varied experience includes tours of military bases in the Falklands, kids’ shows and Caribbean cruise ships.
Noel has starred in a number of sketch shows on BBC Radio Wales, and has held various TV comedy and acting roles in both English and Welsh. His surreal material is simultaneously clever and silly. He is at home in front of most audiences – but that’s only because he arranges all his gigs in his house.
‘Noel James is a lovely comic’
“Noel James stands out like a droll giant amongst a land of trite dwarves.”
“James betrays the soul of a poet and accomplishes it with such rare panache and commitment that it approaches art.”
“The funniest joke I’ve ever heard – almost certainly it was by Noel James. Go and see him live to hear it.”
