Geoff Norcott Occasionally Sells Out (Charlotte Hamilton Artist Management)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Geoff Norcott is a fairly unusual comedian, in that he’s a right wing Christian rather than a liberal leftie, but his comedy is still pretty ordinary. His show had some funny moments and he made some witty observations, but these weren’t consistent. I’d have liked to see more of the kind of humour he showed when blaming pensioners for causing the cod shortage. Norcott suggested this show was meant to be different to his usual comedy shows in having a theme, but as far as I could tell the only theme was ‘Geoff Norcott’. He’s clearly a funny man, but this show needs more work if it’s to be as good as it could potentially be.

Just the Tonic at The Tron, until Aug 25 (not 14), 5.00pm.
