the punters who are used to the usual gags and punchlines of stand
up, then Ross Noble's unique style takes a bit of getting used to.
it may appear that he is just rambling, it's obviously a very clever
act, as he never loses track of the original point.
off telling a story about mad people in High Wycombe, he goes off
on a tangent that includes monkeys on bicycles, navy boys posing
for photos, the Middleton shopping centre, and wheelchair basketball
players, before getting back to his original point just in time
for the interval.
the audience on side is no problem, as his material is cracking,
he's obviously researched the area before playing tonight and he
passes the test every great comic has to : taking on unrehearsed
subjects like audience member Colin, a curmudgeonly joiner who is
worked into jokes throughout the show.
best bits of the show are the most unpolitically correct ones, involving
said wheelchair basketball players, Stephen Hawking and his auntie
with a boss eye.
a very mixed audience crying with laughter at him leaping around
doing Hare Krishna dancing confirms that no matter who you are,
Ross Noble can find something to tickle you with, which is a very
great talent indeed.
coincide with his national tour, we are giving away a CD of 'Ross
