Noel James

Noel James


Noel James has been making people laugh for over 25 years and much of stand-up's royalty has cited him as being a big influence: from Tim Vine and Milton Jones, to Frank Skinner and Dylan Moran.

Noel is surreal, bizarre, absurd, intelligent, and yet, somehow strangely attractive. He's an accessible act who generally goes down well anywhere; his best lines would grace any comedian's repertoire, whilst the worst would shame a cracker factory. Highly original and just plain ridiculous.
