July 28, 2016 Buxton Fringe
Buxton Fringe Comedy Review
James, a chatty and engaging Brummie chap introduced himself with the intention of doing a bunch of comedy stuff for the handful of us gathered in a corner of an art gallery; he had been to Buxton before and had performed at the Buzz Comedy Club, a very different venue and much more mature audience.

However, he diluted and distilled his comedy style perfectly well for the several younger audience members and what occurred was a great deal of family-friendly giggly fun in the style of an intimate chat with a favourite Uncle. Forgiving the odd-cuss-word, you could proudly sit alongside a child and both chuckle away at the same joke…and both understand and enjoy it!

You’ll learn such interesting things as “what it feels like to eat food after midnight as the “eat-by date’ expires” and how to survive a wedding when you don’t really want to be there.”

He’s taking this show to Edinburgh - well at the age of 39, it’s about time he took a risk on his comedy persona. I think he’ll do very well there. In fact, I’d like to send him merrily on his way with a personal recommendation for a Fringe Comedy Award – he gets my vote and my wife’s!
