Geordie comedian, Ross Noble, returns to his native North East this month for a string of shows at Newcastle’s City Hall.
Born in south-east Northumberland, Ross quickly developed a taste for public performance. From learning to ride a unicycle along Cramlington’s many cycle tracks and developing a stable of other circus skills to turning his talents to stand-up, it appears the young Geordie was always destined for the stage.
Now an established British heavyweight of comedy, Ross has performed in films, hosted TV shows and appeared on panel shows such as the BBC’s ‘Have I Got News for You.’ Stand-up comedy has always been his forte, however – if you’ve never seen him before, look up his ‘Randomist’ DVD (recorded at Newcastle City Hall) and go from there. His routine about 50 Cent working as a landscape gardener in Ashington will have you in stitches.
Never one to perform the same show twice, Ross takes his inspiration from people he chats to in the audience and can riff on a subject far longer than you’d expect.
Fans of stand-up may already be familiar with his ‘meat on the face’ and ‘faces in muffins’ routines, but don’t expect him to wheel out the old favourites – the only thing that can be guaranteed at a Ross Noble show is laughter.
Ross Noble will be performing his ‘El Hablador’ show at Newcastle City Hall from Wednesday 21st November to Saturday 24th November.
Tickets, priced at £29.00, are available from theatreroyal.co.uk.
