About James Hancox: Sports For The Unsporty
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Do you have the heart of an athlete, but the skills of a toddler? Then this is the show for you! Self-appointed Sports Personality Of The Year James Hancox has always been rubbish at sports. As a response, he’s invented his own and plans to unveil them to the world, one fringe show at a time, in his debut solo hour.
If you can’t beat them, just make up a different game and beat them at that instead. Part referee, part coach, part idiot; the mustachioed improviser creates scenes of sporty silliness with audience-based sketch, improvised power ballads and half the contents of the local pound shop. It’ll leave the crowd feeling like the champions they were born to be.
Entering the comedy world in 2010 as one half of award-winning duo Abandoman, James has played a whole variety of stages, from London Apollo to Glastonbury Festival, as well as sold-out shows at the Edinburgh, Perth and Adelaide Fringes. He has appeared on several TV and radio shows, including 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and The Stephen K Amos Show, and won Hackney Empire’s New Act of The Year. Earlier this year, James was nominated for the Best Comedy Award 2018 at Fringe World Perth.
