Noble endeavour: British comedian set to perform in Mandurah next month

Mandurah is set to be rocked as Geordie comedian Ross Noble's new tour comes through town next month.

The comedian is setting out on his new Humournoid tour playing at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on August 7.

Noble said he was excited to be visiting the more remote parts of WA on this tour.

"In the past I've just come in and done Perth... this time I'm doing a whole load regionally," he said.

"WA to me, I always associate it with just being incredibly relaxed.

"There's not many gigs you can do where you're stood there by the stage door and you can see dolphins swimming around.

"It'll be nice to just enjoy the relaxed vibe."

The comedy industry has recently found itself divided, with veteran comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais speaking out in support of making jokes about controversial topics.

Noble said people were just trying to figure out where the line was for offensive jokes.

"You used to be able to make jokes about anything and you could use the defence 'it's a joke, it's just a joke'," he said.

"Now you can't just say 'it's a joke' because you can be called out on everything.

"All of a sudden, thanks to social media and to some degree the internet, everybody has a voice and that's great in a sense.

"People now are just having to think a bit more about what they're saying because people realise what you say does have consequences.

"At the end of the day, a knock-knock joke can be offensive to someone whose just suffered a home invasion."

Noble said he tried to be as sensitive as possible, even though people could go a bit over the top.

"It's a pain in the a** but at the same time when people are constantly getting jokes made about them, they can say 'do you know what, I'm kind of a bit bored of that now'," he said.

"Yes, people are very sensitive but that's all just part of trying to figure out where we are morally in the world.

"When the most powerful man in the world openly boasts about sexually assaulting women it makes you wonder if anybody has any sense of what is right and wrong anymore."

The comedian adopts an unorthodox style, with his stream of consciousness delivery feeding off the audience's reactions and heckles.

Noble said his relationship with the audience was symbiotic.

"I feed off them, they feed off of me," he said.

"The more energy I can get off a crowd, the more I can put in."
