Dates, Times and Prices


After a five-star, sell-out run at Edinburgh 2022, James is popping to the Free Fringe for an out-of-control hour of jokes. Reviewers not welcome. An hour of fearless storytelling and unapologetic punchlines. Like his mental health and financial situation, this show is a work in progress. 'When it comes to capturing an audience in the palm of your hands, James does that perfectly' (Metro). 'Acid tongued' (LondonTheatre1.com). As heard on The Hits Radio Breakfast Show and A Gay and A NonGay Podcast.
