The Comedy Club - Sponsored by Beckhoff


As a rare right-wing comedian, Geoff Norcott is a unique voice in British comedy. Having appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mash Report, Mock the Week and Question Time he’s built up a significant live following with sell-out Edinburgh runs and two national tours. Geoff has fronted his own documentary HOW THE MIDDLE CLASSES RUINED BRITAIN, again for BBC 2. He’s also had several successful national stand-up tours, with TAKING LIBERTIES touring in 2019 and 2020, and current show I BLAME THE PARENTS touring 2021/2022.

Geoff is the host of the popular podcast WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK. His satirical comment has found its way into national publications with articles appearing in The Times, The Sunday Telegraph, The Independent and The New Statesman, and Geoff remains in high demand as a writer for TV too, with an impressive list of credits, including: Channel 4’s ALTERNATIVE ELECTION, 8 OUT OF 10 CATS (C4), THE RANGANATION (BBC 2), JUDGE ROMESH (Dave), A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN (Sky 1), KATHERINE RYAN IN IRELAND (Sky Arts), and 8 OUT OF 10 CATS DOES COUNTDOWN (C4). 

His first book WHERE DID I GO RIGHT?: HOW THE LEFT LOST ME was published in May 2021.
