Ben NORRIS (Eng)

We welcome back to NZ a UK headline comedian

Ben first got a taste of The Classic Comedy Club and NZ audiences back at the turn of the millennium. UK commitments have prevented Ben from returning until the 2024 NZ Comedyfest. But in the meantime he has become a UK champion on the huge Pro circuit.

Ben will be all over the NZ Festival hosting and headlining.

One of the UK finest Ben’s TV credits include: “Mock the week” (BBC 1), “The Comedy Store” (Paramount and Comedy Central), “Never mind the Buzzcocks” (BBC 2), “They think it’s all over” (BBC 2)

Ben has written and performed three solo shows at The Edinburgh Festival: ‘Sitting room only’ (1997), ’Mr Ambiguousness’ (2013), and ‘Benny on the loose’ (2014)

The critics have spoken...

" The term “circuit legend” is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see". GQ Magazine

"Ben Norris may not be a household name, but then very few really good comedians are these days. The London-based stand-up has been touring steadily for the past two decades, and he’s developed a razor sharp act in the process ; with the notable exception of Jason Byrne, it’s hard to think of anyone on the circuit who works an audience with as much skill and flair".  The Scotsman

"He’s one of the best headliners around, Ben Norris pretty much improv-ed his way through his 20-minute set, and did so beautifully"  London is funny.com

"…an acerbic attitude, a well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics on the circuit" Chortle UK
