A Glaswegian stand-up comic who has been a hit at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival and regularly tours the British circuit doing his thang.
James is also almost certainly the most successful professional storyteller in Britain (if not the world) and is also a novelist and playwright.
He has visited over 900 primary schools in the last seven years and is the only stand-up comedian for children in the known universe.
'James Campbell pioneered the idea of stand-up for children, and it is still genuinely impressive to watch him hold the attention of a theatre full of six to 11-year-olds for an hour with nothing but a microphone' (Stephanie Merritt, The Guardian)
'A charming introduction to Fringe comedy for any child' (Three Weeks)
'He belongs on stage' (The New York Times)
'My seven year old was howling with laughter and so was I' (The Daily Mail).
