Geoff Norcott – Taking Liberties

Comedian Geoff Norcott, who performed at Forest's 40th anniversary dinner at Boisdale in June, starts his 2019 UK tour on September 19.

Coincidentally the 28-gig tour is called 'Taking Liberties' so I feel duty bound to give it a plug. (Tickets are available here.)

We were fortunate to book him for the Forest dinner because although he's not a household name (yet) his profile has risen enormously in the past year.

Apart from regular appearances on The Mash Report (BBC2), he's appeared on Question Time (BBC1) and recently presented an entertaining BBC2 documentary, 'How the Middle Class Ruined Britain', which is still available on iPlayer.

Following the 'Taking Liberties' tour he is returning to Boisdale (on November 25) and I'm going to claim some of the credit because after our event in June Boisdale MD Ranald Macdonald messaged me to say:

"Geoff Norcott was absolutely fantastic. I don’t like stand up comedians but he was superb. I'd like to book him."

Tickets, with or without dinner, are available here.
