Noel James

"Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities - brilliantly!" Time Out
"Absolutely Hilarious!" HTV & Wales on Sunday
"Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs" The Independent

For the last few years, Welshman Noel has been performing comedy throughout the UK, appearing at all the major clubs and festivals including Glastonbury, Reading and Edinburgh, to name but a few.

Before becoming a comedian, Noel tried his hand at teaching, without much success. He taught English as a foreign language: he taught it as Welsh! His act is highly original and he reached the Semi-Finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2018.

His act has been described as surreal, bizarre, absurd and intelligent.

Noel’s TV appearances include the BBC Stand Up Show and Frank Skinner’s Packing Them In. He has written and performed in Giamocs, a sketch show on Welsh TV that was nominated for Rose of Montreaux in 1995.

He has also written a six-part sit-com for Welsh TV, entitled Tair Gwaith I Gymro, and was commissioned by S4C to write a film script. This film, The Heckler, tells the story of a Welsh man who comes to London to perform stand-up.

Noel’s radio experience includes writing and performing sketches for Radio Wales satirical show My Dog’s Got No Nose.
