James Cook

In 2003 he won an award that says he’s the funniest person in the Midlands – they haven’t asked for it back, so we’re assuming it’s still true.

Birmingham based comedian James Cook is returns to the comedy circuit full time after seven years as an NTL Award-winning commercial radio presenter. His act mixes jokes and sarcasm with a quick wit and excellent improvisation skills that make him an accomplished compere.

His varied career has seen him onstage with A-ha, present Lenny Henry with his Walk Of Fame Star and as a guest judge on the Dancing On Ice tour at the Nottingham Arena.

His act has been described as “suave and chirpy” by the world famous Bromsgrove Advertiser, and a “sarcastic raconteur” by the Leeds Metro.
