Justin Moorhouse: Northern Joker

Justin Moorhouse: Northern Joker

Tue 18 September 2018

Autumn 2018 | Stand Up Comedy


“Hilarious storytelling combined with a quick wit.” ★★★★ British Theatre Guide

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 needs fewer walks, 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. Can he adapt to survive? What next for this Northern Joker?

Justin made the DAVE TOP TEN FUNNIEST JOKES from the 2018 Fringe with this:
"Trump said he’d build a wall but he hasn’t even picked up a brick. He’s just another middle-aged man failing on a DIY project"
