Joz Norris

Writer. Actor. Comedian. Maker of Stuff.

Welcome!

Welcome to the website of writer, performer and fool Joz Norris. Make yourself at home! (No need to remove your shoes, we’re a shoes-on household, you do you). Here you can watch my films and videos, listen to my radio programmes and podcasts, read my news and essays, and delve into my archive of past projects.

For those who just want a quick update on what I’m currently up to,  I am presently:

  • Developing a brand new live show, You Wait. Time Passes, which is playing several comedy and arts festivals in 2024 ready for a full launch in 2025
  • Developing several scripted narrative comedy projects (one about happiness; one about parenthood and paths not taken; one about murder mysteries; one about an ice cream van)
  • Submitting my latest short film to film festivals and developing various other short-form projects
  • Co-writing an audio podcast project about a spooky island
  • Directing three live shows

Past Projects

Welcome to the Archive! Here you can find out a bit more about every major project I’ve authored over the last 10 years, from live shows to short films to radio shows and so on. If you’re a long-time fan then maybe you’ll remember some of these! And if you’ve found my work more recently, then perhaps it’ll be interesting to go back and see what you’ve missed. Where possible, I’ve included links to be able to see the project itself. Enjoy!

In July my new show, You Wait. Time Passes. (“explores pet themes of creativity and the abnegation of self in service of art” – Chortle, really selling the show’s laugh-out-loud qualities) is coming to the Berlin Comedy Cafe as part of the Berlin Fringe. Perhaps you live in Berlin? Perhaps you know people who live in Berlin? Perhaps […]

It was only relatively recently that The Spy Who Loved Me had made me realise that live action film was an acceptable […]

Joz Norris • Friday, May 31st, 2024

At the end of Withnail & I, Withnail comes to terms with the fact that he will never play Hamlet. This week, I have finally come to terms with the fact that I will never play the Phantom of the Opera, and I feel reborn. It may come as a surprise to some of you that I’ve […]
