I direct live comedy shows, as well as theatre.
This is a different process to directing theatre, but one which nevertheless uses a lot of the same skills.
I am able to support comedians to structure, stage and perform their work.
I am interested in working with more stand-up comics, character comedians & sketch groups.
NORRIS & PARKER: BURN THE WITCH
2018 EDINBURGH FESTIVAL
CKP & INTERTALENT RIGHTS GROUP
Debauched late night sketch comedy for lovers of the strange, the sordid, the musical and the dark. The witching hour is upon you.
"A League of Gentlemen-esque comedy-horror set in Phallus Ridge, 'the saddest town in the north-west', Burn The Witch is smart, sexy and satirical, not to mention bloody funny...All aspects of the show are rock solid - the script, the performances, the narrative - and Norris and Parker are terrific to watch and have serious comic chemistry." ****(Chortle)
"What is so funny about Norris & Parker is that their characters are outlandish and yet you know that person...every character is mired in a grim reality." ***** (Funny Women)
"Norris and Parker play multiple roles as they whizz through the story...They make some sly points about female sexuality and repression, and how it's still a man's world, while providing some big laughs along the way." **** (The Arts Desk)
