Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Noel James, Jack Carroll, and host Danny Deegan
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
Jack became an overnight stand-up sensation after reaching the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2013. His first audition on the ITV show has received over 20 million views on YouTube so far. Jack eventually came second on the show at just 14 years old and has since worked with the likes of Jason Manford and Vic Reeves, while also performing stand-up on shows such as ITV1’s Sunday Night At The Palladium and It’s Been A Funny Old Week. Most recently, he performed on the world famous series Live At The Apollo. He’s also appeared on CBBC shows such as The Dog Ate My Homework and 4 O’Clock Club.
Jack, whose cerebral palsy is often the subject of his act, was awarded a Pride of Britain Award in 2012 in the “Teenager of Courage” category. Jack opened for Jason Manford at three of his tour shows in 2010 as well as performing with him in 2013, and opening Jason’s tour show First World Problems at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. Jack has performed at various clubs and live events across the country, cementing his place on the national comedy circuit. Summer 2016 saw Jack perform as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve, his debut appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe.
