Acclaimed comedy legend Ross Noble has returned to his first love – live comedy.

The supreme master of stream-of-conscious freewheeling stand-up is back with his 21st tour - Jibber Jabber Jamboree, with Ross inviting audiences to join him for an evening of gloriously nonsensical improvised comedy – which may or may not feature a theatrical tribute to Mr T.

Audiences are being given the chance to see Ross on stage, in his natural habitat, at The Anvil in Basingstoke on Thursday, February 8.

On what audiences can expect from his new tour, Ross said: “It will be a playful experience for young and old. Imagine watching someone create a magic carpet on an enchanted loom. Oh, hang on… magic carpets fly, that would smash the loom as it took flight. I haven’t thought that through... that’s what people can expect. Razor-sharp observations on things I haven’t thought through.” 

Given the show has the words jibber jabber in the title, Ross said this new tour doesn’t mark a radical departure from his usual freewheeling stream-of-consciousness approach.

He said: “No, it doesn’t. For a second there, I thought you were going to ask if it’s a tribute to Mr B.A. Baracus, given it’s one of his famous sayings.

“That would be great, wouldn't it? Imagine if it was just a very in depth, one-man show about the life of Mr T. That would be brilliant: a real black box type theatre show, just with a single spotlight. I start off as the young Mr T – like when he was ‘Master T’ – and he's just got one single, small gold chain. And then as the show progresses you put on more and more gold until he's at the height of his fame and he’s covered in chains. That’s the show.”

Given Ross’s love of crowd interaction and flights of fancy, each show is quite different, meaning that he gets some fans who try to see each performance.

He said: "I did the shows in Sydney recently and there was this couple that came three nights running and sat in the same seats. I did a different show every night, I’ve done six hours, and I haven't repeated any of the ideas and then afterwards, they went: ‘Oh, you never did that bit again that we really liked’ You can’t win."
