Spalding date for BBC and Channel 4 star Geoff

More news, no ads


Excitement levels are rising after it was announced that a well known comedy star will be taking to the stage in Spalding later this year.

Geoff Norcott has a string of top-level credits to his name including The Last Leg (Channel 4), BBC hit shows such as Would I Lie To You?, Mock the Week Live at The Apollo and Richard Osman’s House Of Games.

Geoff also continues to be a feature in the world of political and social commentary, with regular appearances on political programmes including Question Time, Politics Live and All Out Politics.

The Sunday Times described Geoff as “a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics”.

His new stage show - I Blame the Parents - is sure to be a big hit with comedy fans, where Geoff will be talking less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), and instead will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong. Hint: it’s you!

Geoff’s fourth tour asks: whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever is wrong with your life can be blamed on someone else - governments, employers…some bigot from four hundred years ago.

He also asks where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents, according to Geoff.

For every generation, there’s an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds.

But do we? Or is it easier to give in to fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?

Geoff has also realised that he’s a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through.

All of this has made Geoff an unusual and unique person, and in this show he casts his unique comedic eye over his most diverse range of subjects yet.

Geoff will take to the stage on Saturday, May 28. Tickets are available from www.southhollandcentre.co.uk
