Cottingham Comedy Club Presents Noel James
Thu 8th Aug 2019 @ 7:30 pm£8 – £10
We are Back at the Backroom, our home every second Thursday of every month. Once again we have a brilliant headline act for you, a legend of the northern comedy scene, we are delighted to present to you, a star of Britain’s Got talent and a first timer at Cottingham Comedy Club Noel James.
Noel James, after 25 years on the comedy circuit, became an overnight sensation with his semi-final appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, in 2018.
Noel is an experienced, very original, comedian, based in Swansea, Wales.
He has performed at – and often headlined – most Comedy Clubs in the UK ,
As well as major festivals, – Edinburgh, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds – and shows abroad (Dubhai, Shanghai, Berlin, Cape Town, Canada);
His varied experience includes a tour of military bases in the Falklands, 2018,
Kids’ shows, e.g. Youthbeatz festival, Dumfries, 2018.
As well as shows on cruise ships (with P&O, in the Caribbean).
With his surreal material, which is clever but at the same time silly, he is at home in front of most audiences. He has both a borad appeal and a broad smile….his secret weapons.
‘Noel James is a lovely comic’ – Kate Copstick, The Scotsman.
“Noel James stands out like a droll giant amongst a land of trite dwarves.”
“James betrays the soul of a poet and accomplishes it with such rare panache and commitment that it approaches art.”
The Scotsman 2010
With support from Jim Bayes,
And host for the even is Cottingham comedy’s number 1 compere… local celebrity and Sex Symbol … Jed Salisbury

Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s only comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
