Returning to his stand up roots, he is taking his brand new show El Hablador on a four month tour of the UK.

In a Ross Noble show, the mischievous comic takes his audience on a meandering journey full of ridiculously funny stories, whimsical tangents and offbeat observations – and his unique brand of semi-improvised stand-up has won him a legion of fans.

Of his new show, he says: “Expect the unexpected. Unless you’ve seen me before. Then you know what to expect. But I might not do that. But then again, I might. I expect it will be one of those two options.”

That’s cleared that up then.

The 42-year-old’s new tour is a whopping 68 dates so far – and he is considering adding two more just to make it a nice even number.

He said of his stand up: “I do still love it. The great thing about stand-up is you’re face-to-face with real people.

“When I started all I did was tour – I was just a vessel. I’ve got more of a balanced life now, but I can still retain the essence of being in the moment.”

He recently performed as Igor in Mel Brooks’ critically acclaimed West End revival of monster hit musical Young Frankenstein, at London’s Garrick Theatre.

Ross also recently fronted a new series for award winning entertainment channel Dave, Ross Noble: Off Road, which followed the comedian as he took part in the Scottish Six Days Trial, a legendary motorbiking challenge
