Geoff Norcott: Basic Bloke

There are no scheduled instances of Geoff Norcott: Basic Bloke. You can view similar events below.

On his sixth UK tour, the comedian tries 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 continues 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?

It’s been a rough couple of years for blokes. Toxic masculinity has grabbed all the headlines and ruined it for communal garden geezers, 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 and his fellow man, Geoff unlocks some of the more complicated behaviour of your husbands, dads and brothers.

'He has become one of our most refreshingly funny comedians of any stripe' ★★★★ The Times

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

Omid Djalili - Namaste

The Persian Comedy Powerhouse performs his critically acclaimed new show.

Omid peacefully bows to his inner anger and unleashes a torrent of comedic vitriol upon the current state of this dangerously messed up planet.

No government gets a green card. No tyrant avoids a take down. No audience member leaves the theatre with an ounce of laughter left in them.

You have been warned.

'So hysterically funny and at the same time so poignant and powerful that calling it stand-up barely does it justice' Michael Levin, Huffington Post

With support from Boothby Graffoe.

Suitable for ages 16+ years.

Nick Helm's Super Fun Good Time Show

The man with the golden larynx - and greatest living all-round entertainer - is BACK!

It's been years and years of therapy, pills, personal growth and being a living legend. The nation’s favourite Uncle and International Treasure-in-Waiting returns to the road to mesmerise a new generation of thrill seekers in his all new, brand new, box fresh show.

See your Golden Emperor shake his ass and give you the only thing you’ve ever wanted… the best damn night of your fragile lives.

Since starting stand-up comedy in 2007, Nick quickly gained attention from across the
industry for his unique, powerful and above all hilarious blend of one-liners, stories, poems and songs. His previous shows enjoyed sell-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe, and he has been twice nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

He has released two successful albums, played lead roles in hit TV sitcoms Uncle and Loaded, fronted two of his own TV shows Dave's Eat Your Heart Out and BBC's Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment. He was also nominated for a BAFTA for short film Elephant, which he co-wrote, directed and starred in.

As also seen on BBC's Live at the Apollo, Channel 4's 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Sky's The Reluctant Landlord and many more.
