Comedy

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.  

Please contact me if you want to talk more about a potential collaboration.

NORRIS & PARKER: BURN THE WITCH

2018 EDINBURGH FESTIVAL
CKP & INTERTALENT RIGHTS GROUP
PLEASANCE COURTYARD

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)

The Guardian 50 shows to see at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
