Ever had a memory so embarrassing you felt sick just thinking about it? Well James has and is dealing with it the only way he knows how, by telling as many people as possible and having them laugh at it.

At nearly 30 James has perfected making an idiot of himself. A lifetime of acting before he thinks has left him with a back catalogue of bizarre, embarrassing, and most of all hilarious, true stories that he will unashamedly share with any audience in order to get a laugh. Runner Up of Amused Moose Laugh Off 2015, listed as 'One To Watch 2016' at the Dave Leicester Comedy Festival, James Loveridge is an exciting young comedian/loveable idiot and 'Hobbyist' will make you realise whatever bad choices you make; there'll always be something laugh about.

BROADWAY BABY – ★★★★★
“Loveridge’s timing is exceptional; he knows exactly where in a joke to place the punchline. He often sets up the expectation that he will take the easy route out of a joke, then subverts this expectation to excellent effect...This undoubtedly the best free show that I have seen at the Fringe.”

THE PUBLIC REVIEW – ★★★★★
“James Loveridge brought out some of the shock and awe – all with a smile on his face, too – you would expect from on-the-edge stand up.”

THE SKINNY – ★★★★
“He had the rest of us in stitches throughout a polished yet ever-evolving act, with asides and quips just as strong his actual jokes.”

EDFRINGE REVIEW – ★★★★
“James is an animated storyteller; an entertainer. His jokes and asides are self-deprecating and sharp, and delivered in such a manner that makes it difficult not to laugh along.”

ARTS AWARD VOICE – ★★★★
“Super-confident… He did impart us to a great trick for a Facebook sabotage which got the biggest laugh of the show.”

HERDMU.COM
“Undeniably great …you are automatically drawn to his inexplicable way of storytelling that gets you doubled over laughing in seconds.”

THREE WEEKS
“His tales of provincial misadventure are by far the funniest parts of his set, delivered with witty self-deprecation and perfect timing.”

WHAT’S ON LONDON
“A thoroughly enjoyable storyteller and a charismatic self-deprecator, James treated the audience like a roomful of friends. Interacting with as many people as he could, he entertained the crowd brilliantly between acts and threaded the evening with a real sense of warmth.”
