“a show packed full of belly laughs…impressively well written, perfectly building and building and rich with detail – each topic could be a full show on its own. Novellie delivers it all with real astuteness and skill, at once relaxed and arresting”
Sharon Lougher, Metro
“the dawn of a major talent”
James Kettle, The Guardian
“hilarious…He will go far”
Dominic Maxwell, The Times
“very close to being a stand-up masterclass”
Brian Donaldson, The List
Multi-award nominated stand-up and regular Mash Report correspondent Pierre Novellie will perform at Soho Theatre from 26th to 28th April at 9:30pm, following a critically acclaimed, sell-out run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which saw his show declared one of the top twenty best reviewed of the Festival by the British Comedy Guide.
Roughly an hour of high quality, industrial grade stand-up comedy, Pierre will not tell you about his dead dad or try to look clever with his literary show title, but he will make you laugh with observational comedy about people, objects, events and ideas, even if you think you’re too smart for that.
On TV and radio, Pierre is a regular correspondent on BBC Two’s The Mash Report and has appeared on shows including Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Joke Thieves (BBC Two), Outsiders (Channel 4), Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live (BBC Three), Taxi Gags (All 4) and The Rest is History (BBC Radio 4), while his writing credits include Mock the Week (BBC Two) and Newzoids (ITV). As a live performer he has been nominated for Best Newcomer and twice for Best Club Comic at the Chortle Awards, and has supported Dave Gorman, Hal Cruttenden and Gary Delaney on tour, as well as performing four sell out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
What the press has said
“Pierre Novellie is wonderful…A tremendous presence, there’s a timeless sense to this chap. His wit is old school, yet his humour is still fresh. There’s a class to his act which has been missing from a lot of shows this year…The writing of his show is completely natural, flowing incredibly despite its obvious hard work”
Dominic Corr, Edinburgh Festivals
“I am almost embarrassed by the amount of involuntary noise that came out of my face during Pierre Novellie’s hysterically funny show…A genuinely hilarious comedian”
Gemma Scott, Three Weeks
“a blistering hour of outsider observational comedy that is packed with brilliantly nerdy contemplations…His exceptional conversational delivery makes for compelling stand-up”
James McColl, The Skinny
Graeme Connelly, Fest
Jay Richardson, The Scotsman
Gillian Furmage, Sunday Post
