Kim Noble has played a part in many brilliant sitcoms over the years, including playing Doctor Jim in Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace; you may even recognise him as the bipolar flag from series one of Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy. With stand up shows that blend humour, filmography and themes that are too often regarded as “taboo”, Noble makes it his art to divide the public and spark controversy, which is exactly what comedy needs in order to thrive. His material is often incredibly dark and wicked, his delivery fluctuating from lethargic, to frantic, to furious; Kim Noble is a comedian who goes beyond the realms of our constructed normality, and does so with pleasure.
In order to find out a little more about him, I asked Kim these seven questions…
1) If you could smash anything with a hammer, what would it be?
A goat. Straight betwixt the eyes. You know. In that sweet spot. Man! And when you land it just right there’s nothing better.
2) What book should everyone read?
Buy it here on Amazon:
(I haven’t provided the link because I haven’t actually written a book… well I did but the publisher basically said it was shit… he didn’t like my obsession with goat massacres) but if you want a book, you can pop round and take one from my shelf.
3) Something that you wish you had invented?
The wheel. I mean it’s just a really good bit of design and useful to boot. that or the Henry Hoover. Like the wheel: useful and good design.
4) What is the hardest aspect of your profession?
People think it’s just sex sex sex sex. Constant sex. On tap. 24/7. Sex. Morning noon and night. Sex. Constant fucking. Hardcore filthy sex. Non stop sex. But it isn’t like that at all! Trust me. It’s the opposite.
5) Who is your favourite person from history?
Anyone with a nice smile.
6) Who is your favourite comedian to work with?
Mostly they are wankers so I don’t.
Fielding: idiot, Kearns: nonce, Munnery: nonce, Christie: (don’t know), Key: nonce, Meeton: paedo, Simmons: dick head, Tate: fucken bitch.
Etc etc etc.
7) Why did you do it? (make of this question what you will)
Do you want to go for a drink?
