Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival Christmas Special
Join us for a festive chance to guffaw with special comedy guests, including Joz Norris.
The team behind the Hastings Fringe Comedy Festival are back for another Christmas comedy special at the Electric Palace Cinema. Join us for a Xmas comedy treat not to be missed.
Headline act: Joz Norris is Dead. Long Live Mr Fruit Salad.
Joz Norris is the winner of the Comedians' Choice Award for Best Show 2019, and was also nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality for his show Joz Norris Is Dead. Long Live Mr Fruit Salad, which subsequently transferred to the Soho Theatre. He is a key member of the Chortle Award-winning Weirdos Collective, and a Board Member of the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society. He has been seen in BBC3's Blindboy Undestroys The World, ITV2's Elevenish and Dave's The Dave Talks and has been heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra's The Comedy Club Interviews.
Joz Norris has retired or possibly died, who cares?
All that matters is that Mr Fruit Salad, a fictional chimaera he created as a form of self-care, has developed autonomy and is putting on a solo show. A sort of absurdist meditation on anxiety and grief performed by an idiot from Pontefract who doesn’t exist.
