Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2018: Justin Moorhouse, Sarah Keyworth

"The closing night of the Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2018 features one absolutely huge star and one rising star in what will be one of the biggest evenings of entertainment we’ve ever presented. Sarah Keyworth was a runner up in the Funny Women competition in 2015 and after spending a few years establishing herself on the comedy circuit is embarking on her hotly anticipated first full Edinburgh show. Justin Moorhouse is never less than hilarious, a true man of the people who can spin comedy gold from thin air in front of your eyes. This is a truly fitting finale to the four hottest days of Summer!

Justin Moorhouse

Northern Comic - Edinburgh Preview

Following a critically acclaimed UK tour Justin Moorhouse is pleased to announce his highly anticipated return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the premiere of his brand new show.

These days Justin’s not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty – Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and that’s before we begin to worry about what’s happening in America…..closer to home he’s starting to feel redundant as a parent. One kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and needs fewer walks, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to The Beano.

On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. Can he adapt to survive? What next for this Northern Joker? What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for Dennis the Menace and the Bash St Kids? Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much. When he was thirteen, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and he’d never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this is when his reading habits changed too, more Dark Knight than Desperate Dan, more Catwoman than Minnie the Minx. Perhaps our heroes never went away….they just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic….

Justin has performed around the world and his TV and film credits include tiger-faced Young Kenny In Phoenix Nights, Ken Loach’s Looking for Eric, Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow ,8 out of 10 Cats and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled.

He’s also a regular contributor to BBC’s The Premier League show.

He has won Celebrity Mastermind majestically, won fortunes for charity on Celebrity Storage Hunters and lost even more magnificently on Celebrity Eggheads and Pointless Celebrities (twice)

On radio he has written and starred in two series of his own Radio 4 sitcom Everyone Quite Likes Justin and often appears on Radio 4’s The News Quiz . He’s a regular on 5 Live’s Fighting Talk. He is also a frequent guest on Shaun Keaveny’s Breakfast Show and Radcliffe and Maconie in The Afternoon (both 6 Music). He also often pops up on TalkSport as well as helming his own critically acclaimed podcast, About 30 Minutes, No More Than 45.

Sarah Keyworth

Dark Horse - Edinburgh Preview

You've seen her on Comedy Central, you've seen her on the BBC. Now see Nottingham-born rising star Sarah Keyworth as she prepares for her debut hour in Edinburgh. Join Sarah as she tells you about her life with an important little girl and her battle against every expectation of what being a girl means. Think Girls Just Wanna Have Fun but British, deadpan and in no way similar.

Sarah has provided tour support for Dane Baptiste, Stewart Francis and Kerry Godliman and was first runner up in Funny Women 2015.
