Headliners Comedy Club: George IV pub, Chiswick, London, 2018
The Best of The Comedy Store: Udderbelly Festival, Southbank, London, 2018
Justin Moorhouse: Northern Joker: Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh, 2018
One of my favourite current comedians, I watched the great Justin Moorhouse perform at Headliners Comedy Club in London in February 2018, feature in The Best of The Comedy Store for the Southbank Udderbelly Festival in June 2018 and appear in his own one-man show Northern Joker at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018.
I have seen him perform many times on stage and Moorhouse always has a great cheerful personality. He delivers hilarious storytelling combined with a quick wit in response to audience reaction that makes for a great set. He was warm and convincing with the crowd and greatly entertaining, but not without causing moments of awkwardness. He’s an out-and-out northern comedian – being Northern myself, relating to his gravy routine and the cancellation of a Beano magazine subscription that he performed in his Northern Joker show in August 2018 was brilliant, clever and absolutely hilarious. He plays his roll perfectly and has duly gathered a loyal following of fans, including myself, who adore this brand of comedy.
