James has been a regular performer at the Classic for over 10 years except when hes been working full time as a corporate lawyer. Back in the day, he was a regular on TV's Pulp Comedy and Radiosport. He also arranged and performed in the entertainment tours of East Timor for NZ and UN peacekeepers.
James has written for TV3's "7 Days" and brings his off-beat observational wit to subjects large and small. But mainly it's frustrated musings of a middle-aged white guy muddling his way through the new millennium with all the passion and presence of an enraged hamster.
