Joz Norris: Awkward Prophet

2014
7.30pm St Helens Church, Stonegate, York

General event

Ticket: £5.00

Awkward Prophet - They say the moment before you die your life flashes before your eyes. Well, that's true, but what they don't tell you is that not only do you see your entire past, you also see all your possible futures - everything that could have been if things had turned out differently.

Joz Norris presents a kaleidoscopic and shambolic journey through his own mind, explaining every accident and naive decision that led him to where he is now, and indulging speculatively on just how things will turn out for him in the hope of finally deducing why he thinks burying a woman up to her neck in rocks is appropriate behaviour on a date.

"The audience loves every second...Norris is one to watch and a real talent for the future." - The Skinny

"Quality moments of silliness...the kind of cheeky grin that was probably a hit with the dinner ladies." - London is Funny

"One of the most exciting comic character creations on the up-and-coming comedy scene." - Comedy Blogedy

"Actually pretty good." - Terry Pratchett

"Norris's comic ability is evidently present." - Three Weeks

Joz Norris was born in 1989. His relative youth is still his major selling point. Due to a Robert Johnson-esque Faustian pact he made at a crossroads in the late 90s, he hasn't aged in 15 years. He worked extensively in theatre and student films throughout his teens, setting up the No Answer Theatre Company to showcase local writing and acting talent in 2007. At the University of East Anglia he started dabbling in comedy and moved to London in 2011 to pursue it properly. He is an accomplished and acclaimed stand-up as well as being noted for his work as a character comic and on the clowning and cabaret circuit. To date he has written and performed two solo character shows, "Joz Norris is Matt Fisher: Uberperson" and "Joz Norris Has Gone Missing," which was part of Time Out's Top Ten Free Shows 2013 and Laugh Out London's Pick of the Free Fringe as well as being Fringe Review's Top Pick for the Blind Poet venue. He is now working on his next solo show, which will be his first non-character-based show, as well as working on several webseries which are in the early stages of development. He was the host of the student TV panel show "Punchlines" and is one half of the What Not Comedy Podcast with Karl Schultz.
