Justin Moorhouse: Northern Joker

These days Justin’s not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty – Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and that’s before we begin to worry about what’s happening in America…..closer to home he’s starting to feel redundant as a parent.

One kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and doesn’t need much walking, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to The Beano.

On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. How will he adapt if he wants to survive? What next for this Northern Joker? What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for Dennis the Menace and the Bash St Kids?

Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much. When he was thirteen, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and he’d never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this was when his reading habits changed too, more Dark Knight than Desperate Dan, more Catwoman than Minnie the Minx. Perhaps our heroes never went away….they just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic.

WHY? 'Comedic tour-de-force… brought a tear to a critical glass eye' The Herald

'Simultaneously down-to-earth and out of this world' The List

'The amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration' Guardian

Age guidance: 14+ years.

Lost Voice Guy: I’m Only In It For The Parking

Due to popular demand following a sell-out tour in spring 2019, Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) - the first comedian ever to win Britain’s Got Talent – is back on the road and coming to a disabled parking space near you this autumn.

The winner of the BBC New Comedy Award 2014, Lee has also appeared on BBC’s Live at the Apollo, Channel 4’s The Last Leg, The Royal Variety Show, America’s Got Talent: The Champions, ITV’s This Morning, BBC Radio 2’s The Steve Wright Show and BBC One’s The One Show and is the star and co-writer of two series of BBC Radio 4’s hugely popular comedy show, Ability.

Lee is also the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid. His cutting edge material combines the political and personal with razor-sharp observations about disability and daily life. His debut book, I’m Only In It For The Parking, is available now.
