JACK LAND NOBLE


They say all the world’s a stage but it is his humble hometown of Barnsley which keeps setting the scene as the most prominent backdrop in Jack Land Noble’s productions.


Billed as an actor, writer, director,


producer, singer and songwriter, it’s Jack by name, but most definitely not Jack-of-all-trades by nature. At just 30-years-old, Jack has remastered the golden era of slapstick comedy to bring theatre to life and life to the theatre. As a writer, his raucous shows have a funny way of being serious, portraying South Yorkshire folk in all their satirical finery to entice people from varying backgrounds to appreciate the theatrical arts. From working men’s club turns,


to a miner-cum-erotic novelist, and even Berneslai’s own band of merry men, Jack’s work has covered all matter of subjects from the obscure to the absurd – all locally flavoured around Barnsley and South Yorkshire with an extra helping of comedy and tom foolery thrown in for good luck. As a performer, there is no pretence or facade, with each show exposing a little bit more of his mind’s eye. Perfectly cast in the story of his life, Jack’s portrayal of himself is multi-faceted, switching between the jesting stooge,


charismatic crooner and beloved pantomime dame.


But does life imitate art? As we meet him at his second home, Barnsley’s Lamproom Theatre, his enigmatic character clothed in flat cap and tweed gives little away of his larger than life, on- stage persona – although the quips continue to roll off his tongue from under the handlebar moustache which he’s growing for an upcoming project. There’s something to be said for people who can make you laugh without even trying. Funny is in the writing, not the performing and Jack has that clever, sharp-witted humour which makes you wonder how great comedians think up their jokes.


But it is thanks to this small and 4 aroundtownmagazine.co.uk


intimate theatre here in Barnsley that Jack has been able to hone his craft and continue to write his clever adaptations of local life. From first performing as a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz at its inception 20 years ago, Jack has since gone on to become a Lamproom trustee and stalwart performer.


His beloved Lamproom stage, on which he has become a crowd- pulling name for his gutsy gags and inimitable interpretations of South Yorkshire musings, has enabled him to keep taking risks with the shows he produces for the greatest reward – laughter.


“I feel blessed to have such a magnificent theatre on my doorstep which has given me such a strong
