"If you don't like Tangents, leave now!"
Last night we saw Ross Noble at Hull City Hall as part of his 'Nonsensory Overload' and the Hull Comedy Festival! I first saw him at the Beverley Comedy Festival back in, I think, 2003. That was a night I thoroughly enjoyed!
Ross Noble says he talks 'utter bollocks' on stage and he's right, but it's funny! He invites you into his world, a world where owls wear pajamas, penguins race motorbikes, and tangents prosper. In fact most of his act is heavily unscripted and you'll never see the same performance two nights running - as the title here says, if you don't like tangents you're not going to enjoy it! But most people will.
I think he's one of the best comedians currently performing on the circuit - he's original, weird but most of all he enjoys life and his work. And this shines through his act. He's just utterly brilliant and a sheer joy to watch!
