Another evening of astounding comedy talent kicks off the second weekend of the Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2018. Nick Doody is one of our favourite acts to have performed at the in the past and we’re extremely excited to have him with a full hour show, so he can really stretch his comedic legs and give you the full force of his talent. Geoff Norcott is a first-timer at the Frazer, but it’s hard to escape the meteoric rise to fame he’s been enjoying in the last year. Playing the biggest gigs and appearing on some of the most popular TV shows around, Geoff is quickly becoming a comedy force to be reckoned with.

NICK DOODY…Work In Progress

Nick Doody has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill’s request. A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition.

Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia… You get the idea. He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia.

Nick has appeared on various radio and TV shows and is also much in demand as a writer. He has penned jokes for Joan Rivers, Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage and an uncomfortable number of Mock The Week regulars. He was also the creator and head writer of Bigipedia, a critically acclaimed Radio 4 show that broadcast in 2009 and 2011.

In 2006, Nick performed his first solo Edinburgh Festival show, Before He Kills Again. The show received rave reviews and sold out for the whole festival, leading to a run at the Soho Theatre. Since then, Nick has written and performed another six solo hours of stand-up, including the most honest title ever to appear on a poster, Look At This Massive Picture Of My Face.

GEOFF NORCOTT…New Material/Edinburgh Preview

That bloke off The Mash Report, Live at at the Apollo and Question Time is working up some new material.

As well as appearing on TV, Geoff has also written for numerous shows including ‘Have I Got News For You’, ‘Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night’ and ‘Frankie Boyle’s New World Order.’ In addition to this, 2018 will see Geoff star in his own BBC Radio 4 stand up special.
