'Richard James started his comedy career in Plymouth in 2012. Since then he has travelled the length and breadth of the nation telling jokes to strangers. In 2014, he was a finalist in Foster's South Coast Comedian of the Year and has performed across the UK on pro-bills alongside the great and the good, from festivals to corporate functions, to theatres and little pubs and pretty much anywhere that'll let him say things on a microphone. In Feb 2015, he crossed the Atlantic and performed in the USA, in New York and Baltimore. Where a New Yorker said he was 'Pretty darn funny for a limey.' Richard smiled awkwardly then left.
Along with a fondness for the absurd and the awkward details of life, Richard is an unashamed nerd for history and science fiction. The material that he uses stretches from topical humour to bizarre family stories to films and history.
