Award-winning comedian is set to be taking liberties at the Cornerstone

Geoff Norcott

Geoff Norcott’s unique brand of provocative stand-up is hitting the road again with ‘Taking Liberties’.

Whatever the contentious subject – he’ll be honest and blunt without being a dick. Mostly.

Kicking off his tour in May Norcott, – the Winner of Best Comedy at the BBC Radio & Music Awards 2019 – will be touring across the UK bringing ‘Taking Liberties’ to Cornerstone Arts Centre, Didcot, November 8 2019.

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.

‘He’s a class act with a mature, sharp take on modern politics’

Sunday Times

It’s a bad time to feel this way. With rising ‘Nanny State’ legislations 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 ApolloThe 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 This WeekDaily Politics and Politics Live. Geoff’s other broadcast credits include: Comedy BigmouthsThe Wright StuffJeremy Vine and Edinburgh Nights. Geoff is also a regular on BBC Radio with appearances on The Now ShowLoose EndsBreaking the News, the Today programme. His BBC Radio 4 special Right Leaning But Well Meaning won Best Comedy Award at the BBC Radio & Music Awards. Geoff haswritten for The Daily Telegraph, Independent Voices and The New Statesman.
