Ross Noble Freewheeling (6 x 60′) – Comedian Ross Noble wants to do things his way. And his way is the random way. So Ross is putting his fate completely in the hands of the public as he calls on fans through social media to decide every step of this travel journey. The series is an anti-travelogue, a revealing comic journey and a fascinating insight into modern Britain.
Noble is throwing out the script, along with the guidebook, and crowd-sourcing the sort of experiences and people that you never normally hear about. The sort of things you’d least expect to be the basis of comedy.
Ross is renowned for improvising entire gigs and even riffing for hours on odd items as simple as a till receipt. Now liberated from the stage, literally anything and anyone could find themselves entwined in one of Ross’ comic scenarios. Of course it will also show that things don’t always go according to plan.
If he has to go to a tourist attraction, Noble is more likely to be found hanging around by the bins than enjoying the view. He’s more likely to be found doing a best man speech for a couple he’s never met or trying to convince a group of teenage goths to get a spray tan.
