Comedian Ross Noble has announced his latest tour dates, which include visits to Carlisle and Barrow.

Noble will be at the Sands Centre on November 19 and the Forum on February 4 as part of his 57-stop tour.

Named 'Jibber Jabber Jamboree', it will mark the comedian's 21st solo stand-up tour.

On it being such a landmark, Noble said: "I've got significantly better hotel accommodation. That’s the main thing.

"Also, there are people coming to see me now who came with their parents when they were kids. That messes with your head a little bit."

After a storied career that has seen him become a staple of British television, the Geordie star is making a return to his first love in touring the country.

"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."The Westmorland Gazette: Ross Noble. Credit KPPRRoss Noble. Credit KPPR (Image: KPPR)

The tour is set to take place between October 25, 2023, to March 17, 2024, with two shows at London’s iconic Palladium towards the end of the run.

Noble explained: "Stand-up is just so much fun because you’re the writer, the director and the performer.

"Everything's under your control, and it's instant."

What has allowed the comedian to stand out amongst a packed crowd is his renowned ability to improvise.

"I did the shows in Sydney recently and it was a different show every night, I’ve done six hours, and I haven't repeated any of the ideas.

"I really like being able to let the audience into the way my mind works."
