James on "Scared of Santa"

James  has established himself as one of the most booked MCs on the circuit too, now regularly appearing as MC or resident MC for over a dozen professional comedy clubs around the country!

He also regularly gigs abroad travelling to Cyprus, Spain, Egypt, Crete, Turkey and various corporates including performing in Iceland for WowAir, Switzerland for Nestle and in New York at Christmas.


James also hosts the South Coast Comedian of the Year competition every year finding the brightest new comedy talent on the south coast! 


James has an effervescent and exuberant style. He draws on his life experiences as a man to feed his routines. He's been described by many as an 'everyman comedian'. Women laugh at his hilarious observations and self-depricating style, and men laugh with him, feeling his pain and his frustrations....you rarely know where James will go with his comedic tales and punchlines, but he always takes the crowd with him, laughing all the way....

James is married to Charlotte, his dream girl, who he met whilst on holiday in Corfu in 1994, when he was just 19.

They tied the not in 2001.

James is the proud father of two terrific young boys, Louis & Joe, aged 13 and 11.
