From Live at the Apollo, The News Quiz and Fighting Talk. A little slimmer but still as “belly laugh funny” (Manchester Evening News), everyone’s favourite northern charmer is back on the road and better than ever. After touring last year’s show, of which The Guardian said “the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” he’s had a think about people. And feelings. About people Justin knows, their feelings and how he feels about them. And they about him. It’ll be a (very) funny show. Promise.

Justin has come along way since the long hot summer of 1976, when he was thrust by his divorced Mum’s quick remarriage into a clichéd working class Northern English family, no one in the Moorhouse household could ever of dreamed of what was to happen 40 years later…
In the Summer of 1986 surrounded by the detritus of a post-industrial age that had long since given up any romantic hope of a young man’s chances of learning a trade in the manufacturing industries that had shaped the very city to which he was born, our hero was forced into a tokenistic YTS course as a shipping clerk in Manchester – the most land locked city in the British Isles – no one could have guessed what would happen just thirty short years later…
A decade on… 1996 as his fellow holiday makers of Kavos watched our hero dance on a podium with his shirt off, pink and sweaty, more Don Estelle than the Adonis he thought, who could have predicted what just two decades later may happen….
….and in 2006 having seemingly forgone a promising career in stand up for a regular day time job on the radio and a bit of acting here and there and some stand up that frankly was ‘fine’….the truth was still a decade away from becoming a reality…
Legends aren’t born, they’re forged over decades…
…prophecies are only discussed when they’ve become…no one remembers the empty promises – this Spring one man will stand on a stage with all that life has taught him and talk about his feelings, but be very funny about it.
Please be aware the style of the show is no way indicative of the bullshit that has been written so far….
Outside of the People and Feelings tour Justin flew down to Rio in August to cover the Olympic games with Team GB and DFS, performed at The Melbourne Comedy Festival in April, released his DVD ‘Live in Salford” appeared On Alan Davies As Yet Untitled and he continues to record his hit podcast About 30 Minutes and Never More Than 45 each week.
