Noel James delivers an exquisite amalgamation of witticism and wordplay. His themes are manifold – jobs, family, the Elephant Man – while his engaging high energy performance is guaranteed to leave the audience exhausted. Originally from Pontardawe he honed his engaging comic style on the London comedy circuit and now comes to Kendall as Wales’ number one funny man! He hopes to make you laugh as well as answering a few of life’s questions, questions like….where is Pontardawe? (it’s actually next to Ynysmeudwy). 

‘Noel James is a lovely comic’ – Kate Copstick, The Scotsman.

‘Stands out like a droll giant’ – The Independent.
