JUSTIN MOORHOUSE: STRETCH & THINK


“NOT A MOMENT WITHOUT LAUGHTER.” **** Chortle

Award-winning comedian Justin Moorhouse is delighted to announce the UK tour of his brand-new show Stretch and Think.

“THE AMOUNT OF FIRST-RATE COMIC CRAFT THAT GOES INTO HIS ROUTINES IS WORTHY OF ADMIRATION” Guardian

Justin is back: still funny, yet middle aged. A brand new show that may contain: Yoga, getting  older, Madonna, shoplifters, Labradoodles, middle-aged cyclists, The Menopause, running, hating football fans but loving football, not drinking, funerals, is Tapas a rip off?, Captain Tom, Droylsden, the environment, self-improvement, ruining a sexual position, electric car charging spots used by doggers, nursery graduation, horses, Stig look-a-likes, home cooked food in places that aren’t your own home, the odd advantages of fundamental religions, the gym, shop door etiquette.

And he’s got a new suit.

Come, it’ll be fun.
