 An extremely interesting article about Ross Noble. It is mainly about his material for doing stand up-comedy. dated 26 10 2014


It must be wearisome for professional comedians, performing the same routine at hundreds of venues across the UK  -- often the world -- every year. Eventually the material becomes tired, and the jokes lose their punch. Well, that might be true for some, but Northumberland-born stand-up Ross Noble doesn't have that problem, and for one very important reason: Noble takes unique and fresh approach to each gig and litters so much improvised material throughout his set that, even if you went to three or four of his shows, you would struggle to find repetition.  It all started at the age of 15 when Noble was smuggled in through the kitchen of his local comedy club to perform stand up.  He may not have been old enough to celebrate with a pint, but that gig ignited  a passion for comedy, which hasn't wavered since. A Highly-Regarded Perrier Award nomination and Time Out award win followed, and amazingly Tangleman now presents us with Noble's 14th. tour. With a tour that prolific it is no wonder that he was voted the 10th greatest stand-up comic on Channel 4's 100 greatest Stand-Up's.   Noble will play the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow and Edinburgh Festival Theatre this weekend, so there are plenty of opportunities to catch his wonderful new show, and if previous Scottish gigs are anything to go by, then my affirmation of quality is certain to be confirmed. Years ago the comic was due to play a club night in  Glasgow when train and flight issues caused a three hour delay to his set, however he claims it was a fantastic gig and the audience were still completely up for it, proving Scottish crowds are some of the very best in his eyes.   But how would you define him? "Stand--up" feels wide of the mark, and "Surrealist" too vague. I'm not even sure that categorisation is altogether necessary, as his fantastical genius and individuality are intimately connected with his charm. However, I think that what is most impressive about Noble as a performer is that, though he speeds off on a tangent about themes completely unrelated to one another, he still manages pull the whole set together and round off his thoughts -- eventually.      . Using the audience as bookmarks to remind him of his half-jokes later on through the show, Noble somehow manages to both evade and engage with his audience at the same time and complete his improvised quips like a consummate professional, even though he barely recalls making them in the first place.   His shows are completely different to any other comic you are likely to see, and made all the more inviting because of their refusal to conform to a stereotype of the brand. A complete master of the surreal, unparalleled in both style and quality with outrageously non-linear thought process and lightening speed vocab, Noble is unmissable.

by Holly Mckenzie 


The master of the surreal tangent and king of improvisational comedy, Ross Noble is coming to a venue near you.  He should be used to it by now - Brain Dump is his 15th tour in a career that began 20 years ago. Over the last two decades his largely improvised brand of whimsical story telling has built up a large, loyal following which is already snapping up tickets to his UK shows which start in September. So where did the name for the new shows come from?. "I got it from a customer review on Amazon for one of my DVDs," Ross said. "They wrote: "this is just like a massive brain dump," and I thought: Oh yeah, that's exactly what my stuff is ! I'll have that." Even with his improvisational style, he doesn't feel like he's taking risks - he just enjoys it. "It's like driving a car; after 25 years, you you don't get in  car and go: what if this goes wrong?" "If you hit a few bumps in the road you just think:  "Oh this is fun, let's bounce around for a bit!" And having such a loyal audience has actually helped him develop his style. "The main change is that, because I've built up this really loyal audience, there's more of a shorthand," he said.  "When I first started. If I was talking about something a bit leftfield people would go: "Oh God, where's he heading with this?". It's not always a bonus having such loyal fans, however ..... sometimes, the go a bit too far to show their adoration!.
