Geoff Norcott

Due to popular demand, and after numerous sell out performances, Geoff Norcott, star of BBC’s Live At The Apollo and The Mash Report, has extended his national tour of Traditionalism.

Catapulted into being a ‘must-see’, Geoff Norcott became one of The Mash Report stars to go viral with his takedown of Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell clocking up over half a million views across Facebook and Twitter. Among those to flag up the clip was the high profile political blog, Guido Fawkes. Meanwhile, Geoff’s BBC Radio 4 special, Right Leaning but Well Meaning, was just broadcast in May.

Traditionalism deals with the world changing at a dizzying rate. Geoff is trying to hold modern views but worries that tradition is becoming a dirty word.

Meanwhile, in this divisive political climate, a Conservative and Leave-voting comedian is certainly a rare breed.

Geoff is happy to pick fights with the liberal choir on subjects including identity politics and Europe and wrestle with the idea of toxic masculinity. However, in the spirit of equality, he’s also not averse to the odd dig at his own side (‘An equal opportunities satirist’ says the Evening Standard).

As a satirical comic, Geoff has written for Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night, featured as a guest on Question Time (BBC One), This Week (BBC One), Daily Politics (BBC Two), and supported Katherine Ryan on her UK tour. Geoff is also a regular on BBC Radio with appearances on The Now ShowBreaking the News, the Today programme and his own Radio 4 stand-up special. Due to popular demand, extra performances were added in for Geoff’s Edinburgh Fringe run for a second year in a row and he also enjoyed multiple sell out dates on last year’s national tour.

Geoff has appeared on BBC One’s Live at the Apollo and is a regular correspondent on BBC Two’s topical show The Mash Report.  He also was a regular guest on My5’s topical show Comedy Bigmouths. Meanwhile, Geoff made his debut on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show in June this year.

As a pundit and commentator, Geoff has featured on Question Time (BBC One), This Week (BBC One), Daily Politics (BBC Two), The Wright Stuff (Channel 5), BBC Radio 4’s Today programme and Loose Ends, and BBC Two’s Edinburgh Nights with Kirsty Wark. Geoff has written for The Daily Telegraph, Independent Voices and The New Statesman and appeared on the Mirror’s Ayes to the Left podcast with Jason Beattie and Kevin Maguire.

A former nominee for Leicester Comedy Festival’s Best New Show, Geoff Norcott is one of the most sought-after writers on the circuit with an impressive list credits including Have I Got News For YouLive At The Apollo and The Sarah Millican Television Programme for BBC One and BBC Two and Play to the Whistle for ITV1. For Channel 4, Geoff has written on Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night (2015), 8 Out Of 10 CatsAlan Carr’s Happy Hour,British Comedy Awards, and, for Channel 5, Stand up for the Week and It’s Not Me It’s You. Geoff’s Sky credits include A League of Their Own and Katherine Ryan in Ireland.
