'IBlame the Parents' isthe fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of 'Conswervative', 'Traditionalism' and 'Taking Liberties'.
This timeGeoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-newshow will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should takethe blame when things go wrong.
'Sets himself apartfrom the liberal commentariat with a sharp self-knowing wit ****' DominicMaxwell, The Times
Whateverhappened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, itseems like whatever's wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else.Governments, employers& some bigot from four hundred years ago.
Where did itgo wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there's an opportunity fora new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand againstwhatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is iteasier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?
Geoff hasrealised he's also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London councilestate by two maverick parents, there's plenty he has to sift through. His Dadwas a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closetchauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.
With a childof his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it rightand produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocksbefore it gets to his son?
