This weekend the Last Laugh Comedy at the Memorial Hall has a very special guest MC.

Ross Noble is one of the nation’s most successful and recognisable cult comedians. The hirsute Geordie established himself as a household name with a loyal fanbase derived largely from the ‘word-of-mouth’ recommendations of those having seen him perform live.

He limits his appearances on TV and rejects most offers, essentially because he is always touring, which he prefers to the idea of any scripted performances.

Nevertheless he has made guest appearances on QI, the Graham Norton Show and Have I Got News For You and makes regular contributions to Radio 4′s Just a Minute and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

He has undertaken 14 sell out tours and seven top selling stand-up DVD releases while winning fans and plaudits tinternationally, having completed six Australian tours, and performed as far afield as Singapore, Hong Kong, Montreal and Budapest.

He will be back in Sheffield on October 24 his forthcoming Tangentleman UK tour. Noble He will introduce a line-up of Quincy, Steve Royle and Steve Shanyaski (Friday) and Paul Pirie (Saturday).

Former DJ Quincy styles himself the Cockney Prince while Steve Royle is also an actor, writer, juggler, and Radio Lancashire presenter.
