Rolling in the Aisles Comedy Club Night – With Noel James! 8PM Start!

Saturday, 23rd September 2017

Tickets £9 – £10 on the door (Concessions £7) 14+

Doors open 7.30pm. Show starts 8pm

Headline Act: Noel James

Supporting Acts: Dave Thompson & Paul T Eyres

Compere: Nick Wills

Noel James

Noel James’ credits are too numerous to list in full so we asked him to write his own biography to give you an idea how this bizarre mans brain ticks. “My name is Infact Noel James, although I never pronounce the Infact…”

These are the first words of Infact Noel James’ act – an act which, dare I say, confounds even his closest psychopathic hangers-on.

Dave Thompson

Best known for playing Tinky Winky in the Teletubbies, Dave plays a semi-regular character in both series of Al Murray’s sitcom Time Gentlemen Please, and two cameo roles in Ben Elton’s feature film Maybe Baby. Dave has appeared in ITV’s The All New Harry Hill Show, and TV Burp! and plays various roles in Harry Hill’s stage show, Wild Horses.

Paul T Eyres

Paul T. Eyres was so bored of middle-class values that he converted to Buddhism, only to win the title of world’s rudest Buddhist. Despite his everyman appearance, Paul rallies against the stereotypes and assumptions that are ingrained into our culture. Having run a number of comedy nights himself, Paul is also a lively and engaging compere who is much in demand for his ability to get a room going.

    Why ‘comedy’ all the while, remember the night The Blues Band brought culture to Kettering?

      Hi Clive,

      A fabulous musical stew combining the finest roots ingredients – blues, rock, folk and Americana – this brilliant new band brings tremendous musicianship to their many different styles. With something for everyone, delivered with panache and fun, this is a fantastic, highly entertaining, rave-reviewed band who are wowing audiences up and down the land.

      Great guitar player who’s slide and acoustic playing is renowned on the Blues circuit and which has enabled him to perform and record in Mississippi with some of the all time greats including Pinetop Perkins, Muddy Waters piano player. Ricks first gig was in a folk club, so what goes around ………

      Graham MizenGraham Mizen

      Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Mandolin, Bass Guitar and a few surprises

      Graham comes from a family well known for their singing and performing, which they continue to enjoy to this day. It was clear from a very early age that he had a natural ability for finding that elusive harmony and, along with his all round musical ability, has enabled him to work extensively in a variety of musical genres. The Jigs are delighted that Graham is now part of the band, and his inclusion has opened up another musical avenue for us all to enjoy.

      Lyndon is a multi-talented musician, equally at home on guitar and mandolin as he is on bass. Outside of the Jigs he plays in a number of bands spanning several genres and is also an accomplished sound engineer. Needless to say he brings a wealth of experience and skill to the Jigantics – and he smiles a lot too 🙂

      Mark ColeMark Cole

      Vocals, Mandolin, Squeezeboxes, Harmonica et al

      Mark is an irrepressible front man who seemingly is able to pick up almost any instrument and get an exciting noise out of it. A top vocalist and in demand international session player.

      Drums, Percussion, Vocals

      Marty has performed with and in front of, some of the biggest names in the world of popular music, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Lou Reed et al but says the Jigantics are the most exciting project he’s ever been involved with.

      Supporting Act:



      An award-winning, exceptional singer-songwriter with a voice like chocolate whose fantastic and compelling narrative songs are completely fresh and original. A wonderful talent.

      Awards: Marina came to performing late in life, however, very soon after making the decision to “come out of the kitchen” to widen her audience she was awarded Arts Council funding, via the Escalator Project, to record a debut album, Somewhere Down The Line, using this as a platform she has since reached audiences never previously thought possible.

      The self penned song Cry won the Oldies Composers Competition, judged by BBC Radio 2 presenters including Ken Bruce, Bob Harris, Johnny Walker and the late Sir Terry Wogan, resulting in Anthony Head singing the song live on ITVs This Morning, and gaining airplay on numerous radio stations including the BBC.

      Marina was nominated on Soundcloud as Soundclouder of the day with the song The Guilty One and also added to their International Women’s Day playlist, this has resulted in thousands of plays all over the world.
