Ross Noble

Ross Noble is a British stand-up comedian, born in Cramlington, England.

Ross has been performing stand-up since appearing in his local comedy club at the age of 15, despite licensing laws that prohibited him working there. Coming from a new town (Cramlington) "the ultimate in dullness" helped him with career, he said. " There was nothing to do so I used my imagination a lot, otherwise I would have started climbing the wall."

In the past 12 years, Ross has become known as a exciting and genuinely original performer and has received huge critical acclaim. He is a former Perrier Award nominee and a Time Out award winner for best live stand-up and has won a many other prestigious awards and nominations.

Recently, Ross has completed another sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival with the world premiere of his new show Unrealtime. The show was a huge success and became the official best-selling show on the fringe, before transferring to London's West End for a month long season at The Garrick Theatre where it played to packed houses and received rave reviews.

Following the Edinburgh and London seasons, Ross takes Unrealtime on tour throughout the UK during November/December 2003.

Despite not being overly keen on appearing on TV, recent appearances include (in Australia) Channel Ten's Rove and The Panel, ABC's The Glasshouse, and (in the UK) on BBC's Johnny Vaughan Tonight, and Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. Ross has also recently made three appearances on BBC 1's Have I Got News for You and makes regular contributions to BBC Radio 4's Just a Minute.

Ross' worldwide travels as a stand-up are the subject of his own BBC Radio 4 series Ross Noble Goes Global, produced by Danny Wallace The entire first and second series of this program can be heard via Ross Noble's website.
