FOR his brand-new tour, Geoff Norcott from Would I Lie to You?, Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Question Time and The Mash Report will be playing at the Brewhouse in Taunton on Friday March 11 at 7.30pm.

He will be talking less politics, and, instead, will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.

Norcott said: "I have lots of stories about my mad parents, the anecdotes they left behind are a priceless inheritance.

"It also branches out into the hyper-sensitivity we see so much of and the fact that everyone seems to have an opinion on what you say and do.

"I brought a puppy recently and got lectured about so many different things, you'd have thought I was adopting a former child soldier. I think it's high time we brought back the phrase 'Mind your own business.'"

Geoff has also realised that he’s a bag of contradictions; raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through.

His dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares while his mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.

All of which has made Geoff an unusual person, and in this show he casts his unique comedic eye over his most diverse range of subjects yet.

Before going into comedy Geoff was a full time teacher, he said that has helped his comedy career.

"Unlike many people, I liked teaching, I just got a better offer, whisper it quietly, but teaching isn't that hard a job if you're well organised.

"I may be out of step with a lot of my colleagues, but my views are often more in line with the British public.

"So, I may be in the minority in the dressing room, but it's a different story when I step on stage, luckily my audience is a real cross-section of people.

"A lot of my colleagues seem to think I play exclusively to 'gammons' who open beer cans with their teeth but it's not like that at all."
