Bishop Auckland, June 16th 2017

Noel James, Cal Halbert & host Will Duggan

Show details:

Noel James

Noel James

Noel James has been making people laugh for over 25 years and much of stand-up's royalty has cited him as being a big influence: from Tim Vine and Milton Jones, to Frank Skinner and Dylan Moran.

Noel is surreal, bizarre, absurd, intelligent, and yet, somehow strangely attractive. He's an accessible act who generally goes down well anywhere; his best lines would grace any comedian's repertoire, whilst the worst would shame a cracker factory. Highly original and just plain ridiculous.


“Liberates the lunatic side to our personalities - brilliantly!” - Time Out

“Stands out like a droll giant in a comedy land of trite dwarfs” - The Independent

“Huge fan!” - The Sunday Times

Cal Halbert

Cal Halbert

Deemed 'the new generation of comedy' by Michael McIntyre, Cal Halbert has performed from local comedy clubs to the London Palladium, Britain's Got Talent to Good Morning Britain and voiced for YouTube to the BBC.

Well known as an impressionist, Halbert is one half of 'The Mimic Men', the UK's only impressionist double act! The Mimic Men appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2016, gaining four yeses accompanied by a standing ovation by the judges, audience and Ant and Dec.
