Ross Noble

"The supreme master of spontaneous stand-up and the most exciting comic in the country." Time Out, London

Although just 28 years old, Geordie Ross has been performing stand-up since he was smuggled into his local comedy club at the age of 15. Licensing laws meant that immediately after his slot he had to leave through the kitchen - but he has never looked back.

"The most brilliant stand-up of his generation." Sunday Telegraph

In the years since, Ross has become known as a truly exciting and genuinely original performer and has received huge critical acclaim. He is a former Perrier Award nominee and a Time Out award winner for best live stand-up and has won a shed load of other prestigious awards and nominations.

"Undoubtedly one of the finest comedians to break through during the last decade." Evening Standard

"All good comics are adept at weaving the odd heckler or late-comer into a stream of material. But I have never before seen anyone create an entire first half – about 50 minutes – from rapport with a couple of customers in the front stalls." Daily Mail

"Britain's best new funnyman." Big Issue

"Noble stakes a claim as the finest stand-up currently working in this country." The Stage

Throughout his career Ross has concentrated on playing live, relentlessly touring his own shows and as a result has built an army of fans throughout the world. His appearances regularly break box office records, and Noble has been the official 'best selling show' at both the Edinburgh and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals, on more than one occasion.

"Refreshing, original, and bloody funny." The Age, Melbourne

"One of the most amazing things about English comic Noble, now rising to the very top ranks, is the way his show starts as though it's already been going for hours. We go from cold to hot in seconds, laughing like hyenas clinging onto Noble's comedy super-train." Sydney Morning Herald

Ross has recently begun his third successive season in London's West End, with a month long season at The Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave.

"His first act last night was one of the most brilliant hours I have ever spent in a theatre… and the second even better." Daily Mail

In February 2004 BBC2 (UK) showed an hour long film of Ross performing live from his season at The Garrick Theatre, London. An extended version of this show is released on dvd on 11th October.

"Unrealtime is time delightfully spent, a couple of hours that leave no doubt that Ross Noble is the most engaging British stand-up to have emerged since Eddie Izzard." Daily Telegraph

"insane, but utterly brilliant."Heat Magazine

"A natural comic with an instinctive gift for a vivid image. For once it is not hype to use the words 'comic genius'." Evening Standard

"Ross Noble proves himself to be an inspiration in free-form comedy." Evening Standard

Ross has also been seen as guest on a variety of other TV shows including (in Australia) Channel Ten's 'Rove' and 'The Panel', ABC's 'The Glasshouse', and (in the UK) on BBC's 'Friday Night With Jonathan Ross' and 'Jack Dee Live At The Apollo.' He has also made three appearances on BBC 1's 'Have I Got News For You' and makes regular contributions to BBC Radio 4's 'Just a Minute' and has twice appeared on 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.'

Ross' worldwide travels as a stand-up have been the subject of his own BBC Radio 4 series 'Ross Noble Goes Global'. The entire first and second series of this program can be heard via the website www.rossnoble.co.uk Series 1 is also available BBC Audio Books CD which can be purchased on his website along with his live CD's and DVD's.

"This is the funniest thing on Radio 4. Utterly superb." Radio Times
