James won a Jongleurs/Spike Milligan award for being the funniest person in the Midlands in 2003It's been ten years and they haven't asked for it back, so he's assuming it must still be himFrom 2004 - 2010, James worked as a presenter on three commercial radio stations (none of which exist anymore) during which time he went onstage with A-ha, presented Lenny Henry with his Walk Of Fame Star and was a guest judge on the Dancing On Ice tour at the Nottingham Arena in front of 10,000 peopleThe experiences would inform the writing of his first solo Edinburgh show 'Adventures on Air'
