Pierre Novellie has his audience howling from word go.
With a decade of experience, you are in safe hands as Pierre takes the stage with his
classy, sophisticated hour of stand up. Co-host of The Frank Skinner Show (Absolute
Radio) and the hit podcast BudPod with Phil Wang, Pierre takes you a journey you don’t
expect, exploring the inner workings of his brain and recent diagnosis of autism.
A mixture of high-brow and low-brow references, Pierre is skilled at writing a set where
there really is something for everyone. He connects directly with his audience, giving us an
insight into his life, with hilarious stories of learning the saxophone, his relationship with
fantasy novels and theories on Britain’s weekend culture.
Pierre’s clever observational comedy hits the nail on the head time and time again and leaves
members of the audience crying with laughter for the whole hour.
A bloody excellent night out. Pierre is on track to be one of the UK’s leading comedians and
continues to be a sure fire hit at the Edinburgh Fringe. Let’s hope his brain doesn’t decide he’s
had enough of stand-up anytime soon…
