Andy Parsons: Healing the Nation (tour warm up)

LIMITED AVAILABILITY

Boris Johnson replaces Theresa May as PM. Show REWRITTEN.

The 2019 General Election happens. Show REWRITTEN again.

COVID-19 arrives – show REWRITTEN for the third time. So the 2019/2020 Healing the Nation Tour has become the 2019/2020/2021 Healing the Nation Tour, and as the tour has gone on, there’s been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite.

Admittedly, I could have changed the title but it still seemed strangely appropriate - and some of the gigs have been rescheduled so it would prove confusing to existing ticketholders if the ticket said 'Healing the Nation' but the show was now called 'My Life in Ballet'.

So, we have the serially rewritten Healing the Nation Tour 2019/2020 now extended into 2021, not so much due to popular demand but more lack of open venues. And with negative powers of healing. Yet this latest, very new version of the show is my favourite so far.

Courtyard Theatre
£15
Booking cut off time: 7.30pm on Thursday 26 November

Geoff Norcott: I Blame the Parents

The fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of Conswervative, Traditionalism and Taking Liberties.

This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.

Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever’s wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers… some bigot from four hundred years ago.

Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. 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 into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?

Geoff has realised he’s also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through. His Dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.

With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?

Lucy Porter: Be Prepared

TV favourite Lucy returns with another fantastic stand-up show.

At Brownies, Lucy thought she’d be prepared for anything as long as she had her emergency 10p for a phone box and knew how to tie a Fisherman’s knot.

Life turned out to be slightly more complicated than Brown Owl let on.

Recent TV includes Would I Lie to You, QI and Impossible, she’s a regular on Radio 4’s News Quiz and The Now Show.

WHY? ‘A treat from start to finish’ The Herald

‘Impeccably punch-lined anecdotes… genuinely delightful‘ The Telegraph
