Exceptional comedy acts in this brand new for 2022 event


Noel James

Britains Got Talent

Top-of-the-bill Noel James recently became an overnight sensation after more than 20 years on the comedy circuit thanks to a semi-final finish in Britain's Got Talent.

Noel JamesThe Welshman's motormouth style, a constant stream of one-liners, puns and clever wordplay, brought to mind a combination of Milton Jones and Eddie Izzard. The Swansea comedian throws in a few surreal impressions, such as using his guitar bag to turn himself into the Elephant Man before playing the 12 bah blues with an array of sheep noises. He is bah-rilliant. The Shropshire Star, January 2019.

“The funniest joke I’ve ever heard – Almost certainly it was by Noel James. Go and see him live to hear it.”Jon Richardson, The Guardian 2017

"Stands out like a droll giant amongst a band of trite dwarves" The Independent.
