As well as being a big name on the international comedy circuit you may have seen Ben Norris on your screens on programmes such as ‘Mock The Week’ (BBC 2), ‘Never Mind The Buzcocks’ (BBC 2), ‘They Think It’s All Over’ (BBC 1) and ‘The World Stands Up’ (Paramount Comedy). A highly experienced and hugely well-respected stand-up, he is the only touring comedian to be the father of triplets and also happens to be the cousin of actor Martin Freeman (The Office, Sherlock and The Hobbit)!
He’s been performing brilliant comedy since 1993 and has developed an incredibly relaxed stage persona with an innate ability to improvise as well as deliver sharply crafted material. As a result he’s a regular headliner on the UK comedy circuit and has performed around the world in Prague, New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Singapore, Manilla, Bangkok, Tokyo and the Isle of Wight.
He explores such topics as fatherhood, lad culture and cockneys with a genuine sense of angry joy, taking particular delight in some brilliantly crafted wordplay. Its fair to say that he’s a bit of a legend in the comedy industry headlining his bullet-proof act all over world for over 30 years.
