Comedian's stint at Adver features on TV
SITTING in the Adver editor’s chair was just one of the quirky shenanigans comedian Ross Noble managed to get up to on his Twitter tour of the UK.
Earlier this year the stand-up hit the road on his beloved motorbike for quirky new show Freewheeling, which saw his Twitter fans dictate where he went, and now it is set to debut on Dave tomorrow night.
The series is another of Noble’s wonderful and crazy concepts; the premise being that his every move is controlled by what his fans ask him to do via Twitter.
So the six-parter sees him firing custard from water pistols in Tunbridge Wells with Bob Mortimer, finding a ‘sexy sow’ for page three of the Adver and joining Eddie Izzard on stage in Birmingham.
“The show was very intense for everyone involved,” Noble said.
“Because it was unplanned, you couldn’t say where you were going to go every day or where you would end up.”
The show was born out of an idea Noble had a couple of years ago and Dave commissioned the series.
Noble said: “We would start filming at 8am and we’d work right through until the evening. We’d have some food, hit the bar for a few hours, go to bed and get up the next day and start all over again.
“In one day we could be going from Luton, to Birmingham, to Cardiff, to Kent, and between each place could be a four-hour drive. It was constant, so there was no let-up and no time for family.”
Noble, who brought his entourage to town after a tweet from Adver editor Gary Lawrence, said at the time how much he enjoyed his time in the hot-seat, especially as he managed to get a suckling pig on to page three.
“I like Swindon – all human life is here,” he said.
“It was brilliant being an editor but I’m glad I don’t have to do it every day – it’s way too much responsibility for me. I’ve never had a job as I’ve always done stand up.”
The show will be on Dave at 10pm.
