Ross Noble Review
Report by Jo Forrest,

THERE are comedians who walk on stage with a preset script which, aside from the odd moment or 2, they stick to like glue. Then there are comedians like Ross Noble where it is hard to tell if he has any real plan of what he is going to do when he comes on stage. This was very much the case in Liverpool where, on a stage decorated by inflatable light bulbs, the Geordie comic delivered a highly improvised set to an audience of hardcore Ross Noble fans who loved every minute of the madness.

Easily distracted by the antics of the front row, latecomers, people going to the toilet and an audience member with an unusual/annoying laugh, it takes very little to throw Ross off track and onto conversations about carpets, breasts and meat based sex positions. It's all completely off the cuff and, as randomly as it starts, it leads to Ross unearthing a new catchphrase involving fireworks and old ladies from Wigan.

Things don't change much in the 2nd ? of the show as Ross deals with some:- "housekeeping issues", obstructive inflatable's and a guide dog in the front row, the latter causing Ross to joke:-
"I guess that's why we didn't get more complaints from this side of the room?"

Despite the un-PC nature of the joke, it showed that Noble was very comfortable with being "in the moment" letting his show be driven by people who pay to see him. It is this very skill that make his shows incredibly funny and unique because you know that no 2 shows will ever be the same.

The random nature of show causes things to completely run over time, but not before Noble finishes the night off by opening up the show to questions from the crowd. More randomness ensued before 1 punter asked Noble about his pyjama like attire for the evening. It's a bad move from the aforementioned fan as Noble, at the expensive of the audience member, winds things up for one last big laugh from a crowd who file out into the cold Bonfire night having spent an evening in the company of 1 of the UK's most brilliantly random funnymen.
