James McNicholas is a stand-up comedian, sketch show member, and actor, best known as one of the stars and writers on the BBC's BAFTA-winning Horrible Histories. He is also a sports journalist who has written about it for ESPN, CNN, The Mirror, FourFourTwo magazine, and he is currently a staff writer for The Athletic.
James is the grandson of Terry Downes, who became world middleweight champion in 1961. In August 2019, James took his one-man show 'The Boxer' to the Edinburgh Fringe. It was a dramatisation of his grandfather's story, interspersed with stand-up comedy. The run was a total sell-out and a critical success, and was named in The Guardian's Top 10 comedy shows of 2019.
