James Abbott

James was securing paid slots in clubs in Kent only 8 months after he first picked up a microphone and said some stuff to try and make some people laugh. Married, with a young family and a full time job in the NHS, James isn’t able to gig as extensively as some of his peers but this just adds to the frustrations that he takes on stage with him. A comedy club is filled with people juggling home and work life , trying to forget it all for a few minutes, he is the same as them.

In 2010 James was a finalist in both the New Act Competitions of the Newbury Comedy Festival and Folkestone Comedy Festival.
