A NOBLE CAUSE

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.
