This show operates under the Pay What You Want (PWYW) model. To guarantee entry, buy a ticket in advance. Ticket-holders will be seated first. Any empty seats will then be filled from the free queue and audiences asked to leave a donation at the end.
Joz Norris has retired or possibly died, who cares? All that matters is Mr Fruit Salad, a fictional chimaera he created as a form of self-care, has developed autonomy and is putting on a solo show. Absurdist meditation on anxiety and grief performed by an idiot from Pontefract who doesn't exist. Sell-out show at VAULT Festival and Leicester Comedy Festival 2019. As seen/heard on BBC3, Channel 4, ITV2, Dave and BBC Radio 4. 'An absolute idiot... Simple, silly and screamingly funny' (Fest). 'A comedy legend' (ToDoList.org.uk).
It feels strange to recommend a show in which the main star is absent, but Joz Norris's replacement Mr Fruit Salad does a remarkable job. He is new to the circuit, but he certainly has ambition... you just have to make sure that he has got the right show theme.
