Your Host: Geordie Geoff

Geordie Geoff, born and raised in the Northeast, is excited to bring his unique style of comedy to The Attic. With a reputation as a nice guy, he quickly puts his audience at ease through a laid-back and interactive approach to stand-up. No two performances are the same: Geoff leaves people yearning for more with his famous crowd work, always keeping the audience at the centre of his set.

Known for his perceptive descriptions, laser dot humour, and "say it like it is" attitude, Geoff is brutally funny. The front row becomes his playground, and its occupants become his closest friends.

After countless nights on the road, gigging in pubs and clubs across the country, Geoff's show, 'Catching The Custard,' promises to be "an absolute banging" event in Southampton. Supported by a distinguished line-up, the audience can expect a hilarious experience with custard flying in their direction.

Geoff started his comedy journey at the Edinburgh Fringe and has recently provided support for renowned comedians like Michael Hackett, Steve Hughes, and Martin Westgate. Additionally, he is an established MC, having hosted Mark Simmons, Ben Norris, Dinesh Ranganathan, and Jack Skipper.
