Born in South Africa and raised on the Isle of Man, Pierre Novellie certainly has an unusual upbringing to mine for his intelligent and very sharp comedy.
He has won a number of awards including the Amused Moose Comedy Award (yes, that is an actual thing) and had his debut show really well received at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. He was also nominated for Best Club Comedian by Chortle in 2015. That’s a very big thing in the comedy world.
He has appeared on BBC3’s Best of The Fest, Joke Thieves on BBC2 and Frank Skinner’s The Rest Is History on Radio 4, as well as the usual panel shows.
If you like your comedy intelligent, thoughtful but most of all very funny, then make sure you see Pierre Novellie. You won’t be disappointed.
