Geoff Norcott, the right-wing funnyman with a sharp take on politics is back! Coming to Glasgow’s Oran Mor for one night only on the 19th May 2022.

After getting an English degree from the University of London, Geoff Norcott became a teacher. He first stepped on stage as a stand-up in 2001 to earn extra money and was quickly hooked. A self-proclaimed conservative comic, he often incorporates elements from his time as an educator into his material.

Over the years, Norcott brought many successful shows to the Edinburgh Fringe. Including 2013’s Geoff Norcott Occasionally Sells Out. As well as 2015’s The Look Of Moron and 2016’s Conswervative, which he later took on his first national tour. He turned his 2017 show, Right Leaning But Well Meaninginto a Radio 4 special. He scored a BBC Radio & Music Award for Best Comedy Production. Two more sell-out national tours followed – Traditionalism in 2018 and Taking Liberties in 2020.

The Times have said Norcott “sets himself apart from the liberal commentariat with a sharp self-knowing wit”.

A list of TV credits to his name

Along with stand-up, Norcott also has an impressive list of TV credits to his name. While he’s best known for his role as a correspondent on The Mash Report, he’s also appeared on Mock The WeekLive At The ApolloThe Last LegWould I Lie To You? and 8 Out Of 10 Cats. Plus, Norcott can regularly be seen as a pundit on Question Time, Politics Live and All Out Politics and he’s written numerous pieces for The Daily Telegraph and The New Statesman.

In February 2019, Norcott launched a podcast entitled What Most People Think, and the funnyman is set to release his first book, the memoir Where Did I Go Right? How The Left Lost Me, in May 2021.

Norcott announced his fourth national tour for 2021. Titled I Blame The Parents, he confirmed the show will dial down politics a notch (but not completely) while he shares his unique take on personal responsibility and parenting. In February 2021, Norcott announced that the tour was being rescheduled to July – November 2021. A new set of dates was added to the tour for March, April and May 2022.
