Pierre Novellie is known for his award-winning comedy/observations which you might have enjoyed on The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio, the hit podcast BudPod with Phil Wang, World’s Most Dangerous Roads and The Now Show on Radio 4.

He can’t stress enough that he thinks these thoughts are normal and reasonable – it’s you people that don’t make sense. He is the normal one, definitely, but that does raise an important question:

Why are you laughing?

“pulls huge big laughs… you’ll still be laughing about it as you walk away” ★★★★★ Scotsman

“One of the most masterful displays of pure stand-up I’ve seen this year… he’s one of the best we’ve got” ★★★★ Chortle

'Hilarious' ★★★★ Times
