I'm very excited to announce that I'll be returning to the Bath Comedy Festival this year! Last year I presented a work-in-progress version of Hello, Goodbye on my first visit to the festival and had an absolutely lovely time sharing ideas with a really lovely crowd. I'll be back this year with my new show The Incredible Joz Norris Locks Himself Inside His Own Show Then Escapes, Against All The Odds (the same show as the one playing in Leicester as Look At Me, Don't Look At Me but I'm experimenting with presenting it under a sillier, more unwieldy title to see if I prefer it). The Bath Comedy Festival are still in the process of confirming the final line-up, but I'll share ticket links here as and when they're available. For now, put Thursday 6th April in your diaries, I'll be performing my new show at 6:30pm at the Bath Brew House. I hope those of you who came last year will be back, and do spread the word to other local people too, it'd be amazing to build on last year's lovely show and have an even bigger crowd this time! Here's the current blurb for the new show, and you can find out more about the festival and what shows are already confirmed if you click on this link.
The Incredible Joz Norris Locks Himself Inside His Own Show, Then Escapes, Against All The Odds.
Cult comedy idiot Joz Norris (Weirdos, ACMS, Comedians' Cinema Club, ITV, ITV2, Dave, Channel 4, E4, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra) returns to the Bath Comedy Festival with a brand new solo show of comedy, storytelling, nonsense, music, feelings, thoughts, and conceptual theatre musings. This year he's become obsessed with the ouroboros, and with the Elephant Man. Seems to him that performing is a way of totally cutting yourself off from everybody around you by making sure they're all looking at you, and that seems unusual. So it's back to a bunch of formative stories about his mum and his dad and some herons and some sandwiches to try and make sense of how he got to this point. This is his fifth solo comedy show, which have played at comedy and arts festivals nationwide and internationally.

"Fastidiously avoids boring or obvious choices and excels at being unselfconsciously daft." - TV Bomb
