Press Quotes

The term “circuit legend” is overused, but Norris is one of a handful that have been headlining for more than two decades and rarely departs a stage without leaving it torn to shreds in his wake. A master of the craft, this will be an hour of the most polished stand-up you are likely to see.

GQ Magazine

Ben Norris may not be a household name, but then very few really good comedians are these days.

The London-based stand-up has been touring steadily for the past two decades, and he’s developed a razor sharp act in the process ; with the notable exception of Jason Byrne, it’s hard to think of anyone on the circuit who works an audience with as much skill and flair.

The Scotsman

He’s one of the best headliners around, Ben Norris pretty much improv-ed his way through his 20-minute set, and did so beautifully

London is

…an acerbic attitude, a well-stocked arsenal of sharp lines and the wherewithal to work any crowd make Norris one of the more engaging and enjoyable comics on the circuit



The Scotsman

Impressively dark surrealism…

Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

A cast iron guaranteed headliner

London is Funny

Superb…a complete natural

Cape Times

…one of the comedy circuits best improvisers

Daily Mirror

…a splendidly funny live stand-up


With 20 years on the clock, Norris is one of the most bankable headliners around and is a brilliant improviser.

The Guardian

Comedian quotes:

..unbelievably brilliant

Jason Manford

Blokey observations, but not always what you expect. He’s an outstanding improviser, and when the comedians get together to play football he does the funniest commentary.

Milton Jones

A wonderful disgrace of a human being

Daniel Kitson

Hilarious…truly a sight to behold

Ed Byrne

One of my most favourite comics and humans ( in that order)

Michael Smiley

Very very funny comedian is Ben Norris

Marcus Brigstock

One of the most underrated comics in the world
