Geoff Norcott: BASIC BLOKE

New national tour for star of Have I Got News For You, A League Of Their Own,
The Last Leg, Would I Lie to You?, Live At The Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Backstage With Katherine Ryan and many more!

On this his sixth UK tour, Geoff Norcott will be trying to make sense of the current cultural and
political scene with his playfully provocative brand of humour. Whether it's the dire blandness of
the two main parties or the shamelessly shoe-horned right-on messages in adverts and films,
Geoff will continue to tread in areas much of comedy leaves well alone. But this time around he
also has a mission. As well as casting his everyman eye over what's happening in wider society,
Geoff is trying to unpick what's happening with your average bloke. Remember them?

'He has become one of our most refreshingly funny comedians of any stripe.’
★★★★ Dominic Maxwell, The Times

It’s been a rough couple of years for blokes. Toxic masculinity has grabbed all the headlines and
ruined it for your standard model, who have been put under the microscope like never before. At
first glance, there’s not much to examine – there’s no Bloke 2.0.

Taking up his own bloke’s-eye-view, Geoff can see that despite the social media vortex, your
man in the street, average Joe, man on the Clapham Omnibus and your John Smiths just keep
plodding on, fuelled by a diet of football, sheds, super-hero films, sporting autobiographies,
wearing socks at all times and strategically burying feelings when necessary.

However, under the paraphernalia of manhood and the sometimes basic, even primal, behaviour
of dads and lads, Geoff can see that there is something mysterious and definitely non-toxic going
on.

A kindly and funny stock-take of both himself his fellow man, BASIC BLOKE unlocks some of
the more complicated behaviour of your husbands, dads and brothers.

‘He’s a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics.’
Sunday Times
