James Bran is a fast-rising talent on the UK comedy circuit. Refreshingly different, whilst still appealing to mainstream comedy audiences, he's bringing his quirky blend of stand-up and comic poetry to clubs all over the country.
James is a resident MC at both Crack Comedy and The Patchwork Club. This experience has made him a polished and confident performer skilled at improvisation and audience interaction.
Some recent feedback from The Good Ship Comedy Club:
"James played to our biggest house of the year and was on a bill with several award-winning comics. He didn't look out of place and possibly had the best gig of the night. His material is innovative, engaging, original and very funny and he has the calm, brave persona to match it. In less skilled hands his haikus, mic stand manipulation and oddball ideas could fall flat, but he carries them off with a great deal of confidence and top-rate ability. A hilarious and bold act that deserves to be seen by more people."
A gifted writer and excellent host, he's also much in demand at Literary Festivals.
In 2014, James beat off stiff competition to win a place in Bound & Gagged Comedy's showcase 'AAA' at The Pleasance. He returned in 2015 for his fourth year at the Edinburgh Fringe with a reprise of his critically acclaimed comedy-Haiku show 'Invisible Badminton and Other Dreams' and the premiere of his debut hour of straight stand-up, 'Choice'.
