About: Jordan Brookes

A fourth hour on the trot from Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best show nominee 2017 Jordan Brookes. Here he presents a work-in-progress of a new hour of intricately ambitious stand-up full of silly faces and unnecessary confessions, mixing the philosophical and the physical, the observational and the absurd.

In last year's show Body of Work, Brookes told a joke that caused a ripple of upset in his personal life. In this new show he explores our crippling epidemic of self-absorption and the frustrations in our failure to get our story straight, no matter how many times we run through it in our heads.

Let me know if any of these work.


​ ‘Wildly entertaining’
The Guardian

‘Compelling, mercurial, unconventional and smart'

‘Intense, insane and exceptional – an exhilarating hour… there is no comedic skill he can’t deploy’
The Skinny

‘Brookes is a startlingly talented comedian’
The Scotsman

‘A clever, but superbly dark hour of stand-up’

‘messing about with the conventions of mime, character and confessional comedy’
Fest Mag

‘Brookes bends the stand-up format until it shatters into tiny little pieces’
Beyond The Joke
