COMIC Geoff Norcott will: be on tour, Taking Liberties, and a stop will be the Artrix in Bromsgrove.

According to one critic, Geoff "sets himself apart from the liberal commentariat with a sharp, self-knowing wit’.

A spokesman said: "Geoff Norcott’s acclaimed Taking Liberties tour has been doubled in size, with 25 new dates added in 2020.

Yes, things are apparently getting bigger, - extending even, and that doesn't both Geoff one bit. for once.

He said: “There's been a lot of talk about extensions. Well, despite my political allegiances I'm delighted with this one.

"It's time the people were given another say...on whether or not they want to see my show.”

Beyond left/right party politics and Brexit, Geoff Norcott has realised the main thing that motivates his political persuasion is that he hates being told what to do. Whether it's Eurocrats, ministers, cultural icons or his wife of 15 years, Geoff just can't stand anyone having power over him.

The spokesman added: It's a bad time to feel this way. With rising ‘Nanny State’ legislation coming from a supposedly right-wing government and ever greater controls on food, lifestyle and language choices, 'Taking Liberties' is both a statement on what Geoff fears is happening and his intent to playfully push the envelope."

Other than Live At The Apollo, The Mash Report and Mock the Week, Geoff’s also appeared frequently on Question Time and can be regularly seen putting the cat amongst the pigeons on UK political debate shows, including All Out Politics, This Week, Daily Politics and Politics Live. In July this year, Geoff’s BBC Two documentary How The Middle Class Ruined Britain aired to great acclaim

The date for the diary is Wednesday, March 4.
