“Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities – brilliant!” Time Out
“Huge fun” Sunday Times
“With an offbeat delivery and almost-nonsensical punchlines, the laterally-thinking James turns the mundane into the gross and the audience into Jell-O”

Noel James’ St Davids Day Special (Belated)
Noel is a boi bach from Pontardawe, near Swansea. A comedian often described as surreal, but more often as a 6ft Caucasian with blue eyes and brown hair…...on his fish. His material is entirely his own and encompasses the slapstick, observational, visual, satirical and of course the essential. He loves language, his influences ranging from John Lennon to Peter Cook, both masters of nonsense. This show however, not being nonsense, is an updated version of his 2001 Edinburgh Festival hit show. Sketches, monolgue, music and Japanese Godzilla Spinning (amongst other things) all go to make up a ninety minute extravaganza. It’s guaranteed to have you laughing not only in the aisles but in the glee clubs fancy wash rooms. Come all you comedic puritans! And all you in need of a good laugh! Put your money where your mouth is and purse your lips! Come and see Noel, the finest Welsh comedian of his generation.
