Following a sell-out 2019 Edinburgh run, the ‘utterly hilarious’ (Broadway Baby) stand-up embarks on his second UK tour with his new show - What A Man, What A Man, What A Man, What A Mighty Good Man (Say It Again Now).

Robin’s a father to his son and a son to his father. But what makes a good male role model?

As seen on Sky One, BBC Three, Comedy Central and BBC One’s Stand Up At BBC Wales.

Robin is a writer for BBC 2's The Mash Report and Radio 4's the News Quiz. He has been tour support for Ellie Taylor and Iain Stirling and warm-up for the Graham Norton Show.

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?

Jonny & The Baptists: Dance Like It Never Happened

This is a show about grief. This is a show about loss. Just not how you’d expect. Dance Like It Never Happened is the funniest, most joyful and uplifting show you will ever see about feeling totally bereaved.

In 2019, we lost another election, our place in Europe and, worst of all, a dearly beloved friend. We are no strangers to grief, but it hurt.

Then in 2020, we all lost the world as we knew it. Our decades-long system of “dealing with emotions” (ignore them, drink heavily and make jokes) finally broke. We finally broke.

In their most honest & personal show yet, Jonny & The Baptists learn to accept and engage with their grief, telling the story of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance through their trademark blend of silly, joyful songs, deadpan stand-up and riotous storytelling.

Finding meaning, humour and beauty in the hardest part of life.

WHY? 'Hilarious and moving throughout... Jonny & the Baptists will make you laugh until you cry and probably cry until you laugh, too. A must-see' ★★★★★ Sunday Post

'Wickedly funny' ★★★★ The Times

'Excellent, irresistible and winningly random' ★★★★ The Guardian

'You'll mainly leave feeling warm and fuzzy.... note perfect' ★★★★ Metro

'Seriously funny' ★★★★ The Stage

'Yes, the brilliant musical rabble rousers have certainly given up politics. If only the rest of the Fringe could give it up in this way, we might change the world sooner' British Theatre Guide
