Our newest contributor, the multi-talented James Wren (our third James) is making his debut on the arts centre with this very funny video. He tells us a bit about himself below. Please note: this video contains strong language.
“I’m James, a voice artist and comedy impressionist from the UK but now living in Austria. I like inventing characters such as Charlie the Surrey Snob, Barry from Basildon, and a few others. I just do it for fun and upload a lot of content to Twitter. Hope you like it!”
