James is former financial advisor and bank manager. After spending 14 years on the Banking High Street with Abbey/Santander, James decided to head into the world of stand up comedy. His stories of starting life on the counter of a busy bank, through to taking those first steps on the stage, his journey will have you both gasping in disbelief and roaring with laughter. It was a bold career move, but one that James felt necessary after the credit crunch. His time as a bank helped him develop his after dinner speaking at conferences and such events.
