Having starred earlier this year in Mel Brooks’ West End monster-hit musical, ‘Young Frankenstein’, surrealist connoisseur and story spinner Ross Noble is returning to stages across the UK and Ireland with his new stand-up tour, El Hablador’.
On what to expect from his new show, Ross Noble said, “Expect the unexpected. Unless you’ve seen me before. Then you know what to expect. But I might not do that. But then again, I might. I expect it will be one of those two options.”
Born in Newcastle upon Tyne and brought up in Cramlington, Northumberland, Ross Noble has been performing stand-up since the age of 15 when he was smuggled into his local comedy club. Since then he has never looked back.
Noble has become known as a truly exciting and genuinely original performer and has received huge critical acclaim.
He is a former Time Out Award winner for ‘Best Live Stand-Up’, Barry Award winner (Australia) and Perrier Award nominee, with a shedload of other prestigious awards and nominations to boot.
Avoiding the obvious television route, Noble built up a large and loyal following through constant touring and word of mouth and soon became the bestselling show at the Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festivals.
He has performed 15 solo tours round the world, including four West End runs: Laser Boy, Chickenmaster, Slackers’ Playtime, Sonic Waffle,Unrealtime, Noodlemeister, Randomist, Fizzy Logic, Nobleism, Headspace Cowboy, Things, Nonsensory Overload,Mindblender, Tangentleman and Brain Dump.
Noble’s stand-up tours provided the basis for the television series Ross Noble’s Australian Trip (Channel 5 UK/Network 10 Australia) and two series of Ross Noble Goes Global and Ross Noble On…, which were broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
Two series of Noble’s Twitter-powered comedy series Freewheeling were broadcast on Dave (UKTV), which saw Noble create the show based entirely on tweets from his followers. Dave has teamed up with Noble again for a new 3-part series, Ross Noble: Off Road, which is due to air in December 2017 and sees a camera crew following his progress in legendary motorcycle challenge, the Scottish Six Days Trial.
Noble has also appeared on TV and radio shows includingLive At The Apollo (BBC One), QI (BBC One), Just A Minute (BBC Radio 4),I ’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue (BBC Radio 4) and has made 19 guest appearances on Have I Got News For You (BBC One).
His acting work includes: Igor in Mel Brooks’Young Frankenstein (West End production, 2017); Frank Liebkind in Mel Brooks’ The Producers (UK tour, 2014); The Comic Strip Presenters: the Hunt for Tony Blair (Channel 4); It’s a Date (ABC Australia); the undead killer clown in cult horror comedyStitches; Trevor in horror movie Nails (Fantastic Films) and Bruce Campbell inThe Catchment for Sky Arts Halloween Comedy Shorts 2016 series, which he also wrote and directed.
