Justin Moorhouse shares Peoples and Feelings at Ropery Hall
Manchester based comedian Justin Moorhouse returns to Ropery Hall next month after a three year gap with his new show, Peoples and Feelings.
Stand-up comedian, writer, actor and radio presenter are just some of his stock in trade and many people will know Jason from Live At The Apollo, Phoenix Nights, BBC 5 Live’s Fighting Talk, Radio 4’s News Quiz and Coronation Street.
“When his first appeared here in October 2013 everyone was bowled over by his exuberant, larger than life personality and cheeky northern charm,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.
“Justin is a comedian who will tell jokes you will try desperately to remember around the coffee machine or water cooler the next day,” Liz added.
Around the country, Justin is probably best known for his role as Young Kenny in Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights and its spin-off Max and Paddy’s Road To Nowhere but he has also written for television and radio as well as starring in the highly acclaimed film Looking For Eric.
But he has also built his reputation on the live comedy circuit. His debut solo show Local Knowledge – ‘The Smallest Tour in the World’ toured the North West in 2004 and two years later he took to the road again with his second show, The Difficult Second Tour, followed a year later with his third solo show, Who’s The Daddy which saw him making his debut at the Edinburgh Festival.
He returned in 2008 with Justin Moorhouse’s Ever Decreasing Social Circle and again in 2010 with his show, The Boiled Egg On The Beach, which earned him rave reviews before his 2013 tour, Justin Time.
“It’s Justin’s skill at engaging with his audience which is sublime, he will banter and tease like any club comic worth his salt but he never bullies and his audience seem keen to interact with him. Justin is a true gentleman of the stage,” Liz continued.
“This new show promises to be very funny and I for one can’t wait to welcome him back.”
Justin will be on stage at Ropery Hall on Friday, February 3, starting at 8pm. Tickets, that cost £15 in advance or £17 on the door, can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person from The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.
