COMEDIAN Ross Noble, above, is touring the country with his new stand-up show El Hablador following his Olivier-nominated performance in the stage show of Young Frankenstein.
He says of his stand-up: “When I started people said I was ‘surreal’ and that’s a bit of a lazy description because it sort of implies that anyone could do it. Now I think I take the building blocks of the real world and then stretch and manipulate them. It’s more like ‘magic realism’ than surrealism – that’s the way I see it. And that’s the most pretentious thing I’ve ever said!” ■ Go to rossnoble.com for tour dates.
