Imaginative student performer who is funny as long as he keeps the energy level up in the room
2 April 2006 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Opening with a rambling discussion with one supposedly "posh" woman near the front of his audience this show continues with a lot of material that seems like it has been made up on the spot with some later sequences which are closer to the traditional stand up show. Working with his audience a lot he seems to let the specifics of people he talks to direct what he does because he tends to go off on flights of fancy with anything that is handed to him. Obviously he has prepared anything he "makes up" but the effect is still good even if it does produce a rather uneven show that didn't make a lasting impression on me.

His material tends to be funny when he is doing it but the second he has finished going along an imaginative thread in a frenzied fashion, it doesn't seem as funny looking back. However as he is doing it it is easy to go with him and be amused by his ideas. At times he seems to lose the audience and he more caught up in the ideas he has (sometimes lingering on them longer than he should have done) but generally his energy works. It will appeal to student audiences more than more mature viewers because it is very much that type of humour but I quite liked it anyway. Noble himself dances on a line between being a really good showman and being an annoying student who tries too hard. He spends most of his show on the former side of the line but at times he does come over to latter side and gets tiresome.

It is worth taking a look but the show does have a lot of energy, problem is that as soon as it dips for even a second the lack of substance tends to shine through. This is evident several times but no more so than the ending where Noble delivers a story that lacks imagination and energy and isn't that good. As he leaves stage my memory immediately was that the show was OK, but during it I thought it was better than that. Funny but relies too much on energy and noise rather than real substance.
