Jordan Brookes: Body of Work

8th Mar 2019

StageSpace - Pleasance London



In August 2015 Jordan’s Nanna, Gwendoline Martha Brookes, passed away. She was 95. This show is a genuine attempt to pay tribute to her.

That can’t be the whole thing, can it? I thought Brookes did absurdist stuff? Like, bits that go on for ages and horrible physical stuff, daft faces, etc? Is he just going to talk about his Nan for an hour? Surely not.

This is the show that earned Brookes a Best Show nomination at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2017.

‘Wildly entertaining stand-up that demolishes the conventions of comedy’ ★★★★ The Guardian

‘A crazy, wonderful show – Brookes is a startlingly talented comedian’ ★★★★ The Scotsman

‘A magnetic display – gamely playful, messing about with the conventions of mime, character and confessional comedy’ ★★★★ Fest Mag

Please note that this show will be filmed
