GEORDIE comic Ross Noble brings more ‘whimsy and wackiness’ to the Festival Theatre on Saturday, 3 November, for one night only.
Fresh from his recent acclaimed run as Igor in Mel Brooks’ London West End revival of Young Frankenstein, returns to his stand-up roots in his brand new tour, El Hablador.
And if you are unfamiliar with Noble’s surreal brand of ‘randomist’ humour, his description of the new show might give you a taste.
‘Who is El Hablador?
It’s Ross Noble.
No, but who is the one they call El Hablador?
I just said, it is Ross Noble.
You know? Long hair, does stand up where he dances about the stage, spinning out all the nonsense in his head into a show.
But what is the legend of El Hablador?
I don’t think it’s a thing. It’s clearly Ross coming up with a name for his show, so he can make out like he is some sort of mysterious shadowy figure.
Ok, I get it.’
Noble elaborates, or does he, when he says, “Expect the unexpected. Unless you’ve seen me before. Then you know what to expect. But I might not do that. But then again, I might. I expect it will be one of those two options.”
The funnyman started performing stand-up at the age of 15 when he was smuggled into his local comedy club.
Since then he has never looked back and is now a confirmed telly favourite and a regular on panel shows such as QI and Have I Got News for You.
He recently fronted a new series for TV channel Dave, Ross Noble: Off Road, which followed him comedian as he took part in the Scottish Six Days Trial, a legendary motor-biking challenge and one of the most difficult motor-sport challenges in the world.
