Drawing on the most embarrassing recesses of his own life James is a hilarious storyteller who captivates and entertains audiences with his cheeky yet charming personality. His confident but likable stage presence means he is rarely on the back foot and always delivers his jokes with a smile. In his first year he made the Semi-Final of ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’, won The Comedy Cafe New Act Night on his first attempt as well as beating the King Gong at The Comedy Store in Leicester Square. His solo show ‘James Loveridge: Funny Because It’s True’ and double-act show ‘James And Amy: A Loser’s Guide To Dating’ sold out at the Leicester Comedy Festival and his debut Edinburgh show ‘James Loveridge and Other Losers’ was met with excellent reviews.
‘**** He had the rest of us in stitches throughout a polished yet ever-evolving act, with asides and quips just as strong his actual jokes’ – The Skinny

‘His tales of provincial misadventure are by far the funniest parts of his set, delivered with witty self-deprecation and perfect timing.’ – Three Weeks
‘A thoroughly enjoyable storyteller and a charismatic self-deprecator, James treated the audience like a roomful of friends.
