James Dowdeswell - My Grandad Was A Clown And Those Are Big Shoes To Fill (UK)
What happens when you find a clown in your family tree? James' great grandfather was a comic actor, clown, and worked with Charlie Chaplin. Well, that explains the hair.
James is a storytelling comedian who has performed his stand-up all around the world from Shanghai to Dubai. This is his sixth full-length show.
As seen on Extras (BBC), Edinburgh And Beyond and The World Stands Up (Paramount Comedy Channel). He can currently be seen prancing about in the latest Jamie Cullum video.

"Intelligent and inventive." The List (UK)
"An excellent line in comedy." Pick Of The Week, The Guardian (UK)
