My name’s James, and I work as a show tech / tour manager / web designer & sound recordist (mainly) in comedy circles.
Live, I’ve toured with Stewart Lee, as Tour Manager & show tech on all of his live shows from 2011/12’s Carpet Remnant World onwards, as well as tours with Mae Martin, Sean Hughes, Henning Wehn, Bridget Christie, James Acaster & Richard Herring.
I’ve recorded audio for a number of productions, including podcasts for Josie Long & Richard Herring (as well as tour managing the national dates for his 2019 RHLSTP tour), and various other projects, including a podcast interview between Conan O’Brien & Ricky Gervais in 2020.
During the 2020 / 2021 Lockdown(s), when all live work was suddenly removed, I kept going with a few jobs, including a music video for Brian May, and a series of podcast interviews with theatre director Ian Rickson on empty stages called What I Love featuring guests such as Ben Whishaw, Chiwitel Ejiofor & Kae Tempest.
I also recorded and edited the interview segments for another podcast series called THAT Podcast – with each episode featuring a different host and several guests.
I’ve recorded sound for several DVD recordings for indie label GoFasterStripe, (including shows for Adam Buxton, Thom Tuck, Seymour Mace, Robin Ince and many more) & a podcast series of ‘Virtue Chamber Echo Bravo’ with Tony Law & Phil Nichol.
At the Edinburgh Fringe, I’ve worked on several shows all across the city, including Aisling Bea‘s debut Edinburgh show ‘C’est La Bea’ that saw her nominated for Best Newcomer – as did David Trent‘s ‘Spontaneous Comedian’ the year before.
Also at the Fringe, I worked on all three of James Acaster‘s ‘Trelogy’ shows (which are now available on Netflix) the majority of John-Luke Roberts‘ solo shows, as well as shows for Joel Dommett, Bridget Christie, Nathaniel Metcalfe, Henning Wehn, Pete Firman, Paul Currie, Richard Herring, Stewart Lee, Frank Skinner, Tony Law, Rosie Holt, and many more.
I also buld websites – mainly, though not exclusively, for comedians.
These have been for people such as; Josie Long, Stewart Lee, Aisling Bea, Norman Lovett, Bridget Christie, Nish Kumar, Tiernan Douieb, Henning Wehn, Shappi Khorsandi & many more. You can see examples of my work here.
