A trade unionist’s son who grew up on a council estate, Geoff Norcott is wondering how he ended up leaning to the right.

However, in the past 12 months defending his light blue sympathies has become the least of Geoff’s problems.

From having to justify his Leave vote to distancing himself from the rise of the sinister ‘alt-right’, Geoff is fire-fighting by turning his satirical eye on the hysteria of the British liberal left.

In his new show ‘Conswervative’ Geoff comes to terms with being a class traitor while also taking uncompromising stances on issues ranging from depression, benefit fraud and the obsession with the NHS.

Conswervative is the debut tour from the Leicester Comedy Festival Best New Show nominee.

Geoff’s show includes a ‘heckle amnesty’ that allows people to take up any issues they have with the show or, indeed, him. For this section audiences are also encouraged to bring their ideas to save the NHS.

Geoff said: “Would it do any harm if a doctor’s white coat was sponsored in the same way as a Formula 1 racing driver’s jacket?”

Geoff will be bringing his new show to the Lancaster Comedy Club at The Borough, Dalton Square on Sunday, April 23 at 8pm. For tickets call 01524 64170 or visit www.lancastercomedy.co.uk/tour-shows/geoff-norcott-conswervative/
