Comedian and writer Geoff Norcott’s career has been snowballing since a successful Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 with his show CONSWERVATIVE. Since, Geoff has appeared on LIVE AT THE APOLLO (BBC 2), MOCK THE WEEK (BBC 2), QUESTION TIME (BBC 1), THE NEWS QUIZ (BBC RADIO 4), BREAKING THE NEWS (BBC RADIO SCOTLAND) and as a regular correspondent on the BBC 2 smash hit THE MASH REPORT, as well as fronting his own documentary HOW THE MIDDLE CLASS RUINED BRITAIN, again for BBC 2. He's also had several successful national stand-up tours, with the latest, TAKING LIBERTIES, kicking off in Autumn 2019.
Being a rare stand-up who leans to the right, Geoff has also found himself in demand as a social commentator on shows like DAILY POLITICS (BBC 1), ALL OUT POLITICS (Sky News) and VICTORIA DERBYSHIRE (BBC 2). In this capacity, he’s also been popping up on the radio with his own BBC Radio 4 specials WITHDRAWAL DISAGREEMENT and RIGHT LEANING BUT WELL MEANING (which won the 2019 BBC Radio & Music Award for Best Comedy Production), as well as discussing comedy and politics on LOOSE ENDS (R4), TODAY (R4) and GOOD WEEK, BAD WEEK (5Live).
His satirical comment has found its way into national publications with articles appearing in The Sunday Telegraph, The Independent and The New Statesman, and Geoff remains in high demand as a writer for TV too, with an impressive list of credits, including: Channel 4’s ALTERNATIVE ELECTION, 8 OUT OF 10 CATS (C4), THE SARAH MILLICAN TELEVISION PROGRAMME (BBC 2), A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN (Sky 1), XMAS LIVE AT THE APOLLO (BBC 2), KATHERINE RYAN IN IRELAND (Sky Arts), and 8 OUT OF 10 CATS DOES COUNTDOWN (C4).
Geoff’s awards include a nomination for Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival and an Operational Services Medal for five frontline tours entertaining the troops in Afghanistan.
