Birmingham based comedian James Cook is recently back on the comedy circuit full time after seven years as an NTL Award-winning commercial radio presenter.
His act has been described as “truly original” (Danny Wallace (off of the telly)), whereas he’s been called “suave and chirpy” by the world famous Bromsgrove Advertiser, and a “sarcastic raconteur” by the Leeds Metro.
For some reason, this means that he has been likened to “the future Frank Skinner” (Birmingham Metro) and “Dylan Moran’s younger brother” (The Stage). How this is possible remains a mystery.
A slightly less lazy journalist said that he “shows scant regard for the hackneyed conventions of stand-up” (The Scotsman) which, he’s been assured, is a Good Thing.
James won a Jongleurs/Spike Milligan award for Stand-up in 2003. He’s been onstage with A-ha, presented Lenny Henry with his Walk Of Fame Star and been a guest judge on the Dancing On Ice tour at the Nottingham Arena in front of 10,000 people.
