Laughing Matters presented the record breaking Sonic Waffle of the gaudy geordie
Ross Noble

Sun 26, Mon 27 & Tue 28 January 2003

"Simply the most exciting stand-up at work today." Time Out

The undisputed new King of stand-up comedy Ross Noble brings his smash hit show 'Sonic Waffle' to town as part of his 2003 UK tour.

This tour follows the record-breaking premiere of the show at the Edinburgh festival (August '02) where it sold every ticket available and became the biggest selling show on the fringe. 'Sonic Waffle' then transferred to London for a huge West End season that firmly established Ross as the UK's biggest new comedy superstar.

'Undoubtedly one of the finest comedians to break through during the last decade, a natural comic with an instinctive gift for a vivid image. For once it is not hype to use the words 'comic genius'. Hot Tickets

Although first and foremost a live performer - Ross has recently made guest appearances on the BBC's 'Friday Night With Jonathan Ross' , 'Johnny Vaughan Tonight' and 'Have I Got News For You' and is a regular on BBC Radio 4's 'Just a Minute'

Tickets to Ross Noble shows sell-out very quickly, so advance booking is strongly recommended!! Tuesday's show is almost sold out!

"Ross Noble proves himself to be an inspiration in free-form comedy, flying by the seat of his pants perhaps, but if you want to see a comic genius at work join Noble for the flight. It should be an exhilarating one." Evening Standard

Laughing Matters presented for the 4th time
Ross Noble

Sunday 13, Monday 14 & Tuesday 15 January 2002

The bears, the pigs, the donkeys, le grande roue, the euro, the circus from Alsthom and the man who clears up the shit, we threw out a heckler - what a trio of nghts with one of the sharpest minds on the comedy circuit. Inspired genius. next year we'll provide the chinese tumblers, or at the least tea cups.

"It is like watching someone pan for gold and turn up treasure almost every time.
See him soon, then See him again." Evening Standard

"Pure heaven. gloriously surreal tales." The Guardian

"His remarkable ability to create dazzling word pictures on the spot appears to have entered a new dimension. A towering performance by a comedian who has already become a permanent member of the premier league." Time Out

Laughing Matters presented
the rapid return of
Ross Noble

after sensational sold out shows in 1999 & 2000

Monday 5th & Tuesday 6th March 2001

Ross had such a good time here in November with the Boston Coroner's 14 year old daughter and Sarah Jane's Teddy Bear that he insisted there be a couple Paris dates on his first major UK tour. Anyone who saw Ross a few weeks ago will know that there is no fear of hearing the same material again since he just makes it up as we go along with him. One of the sharpest, brightest and flight of fancy-est comedians you will ever see. Stunning and barely out of short pants.

Fun, though I'm not sure how much of a Noble cause it was.

At just 25 years old, Geordie stand-up comedian Ross Noble has already established himself as one of the hottest, most sought after performers on the international circuit.
Ross is known for never taking the easy option, avoiding the lure of TV light entertainment, preferring instead to concentrate on performing live and relentlessly touring the world building a loyal following and an impressive range of awards and nominations.
Following hugely successful seasons in Edinburgh and Cape Town, Ross is about to begin a three week season at The Soho Theatre, London (Dec 2001) before embarking on a massive 45+ date tour of the UK and Ireland (Jan - Mar 2002).
In March 2002 Ross takes his show to festivals in Adelaide, Singapore, Melbourne and Auckland.
The first ever CD recording of the Ross Noble live experience 'The Official Bootlegs - Part One' is available now through the website

"Pushing the boundaries of comedy is the essence of what Noble does. Try relating any of his observations down the pub the next day and you're likely to get glassy stares where Noble commands tides of laughter." Metro

"Noble's remarkable ability to create dazzling word pictures on the spot appears to have entered a new dimension. This was a towering performance by a comedian who has already become a permanent member of the premier league." Time Out

"Noble is a freewheeling whirlwind, where his mind is working faster and wilder than the mouth so any notion that he should maybe think before he speaks is utterly alien." The List

"One of the fastest thinking, most inventive and totally in control performers, he slides from subject to subject so naturally that one can never be sure whether a particular riff is part of the script or an off-the-cuff meandering." The Stage

"His star is rising, brilliant and original." The Age, Melbourne
Comedy Awards

"Here is a comedian who has a gift for improvising hysterical, elaborate routines which most stand-ups could only dream of." Evening News, Edinburgh
