In August 2015 Jordanís Nanna, Gwendoline Martha Brookes, passed away. She was 95. This show is a genuine attempt to pay tribute to her.

That canít be the whole thing can it? I thought Jordan Brookes did absurdist stuff? Like, bits that go on for ages and horrible physical stuff, daft faces, etc? Is he just going to talk about his Nan for an hour? Surely not.

Chortle Award Best Newcomer nominee returns with his third solo hour of high-wire stand-up and absurdism.

'Funny and surprising - youíre advised to see Brookes fast before word of mouth fills every seatí ★★★★ (Scotsman)

ĎA breath-taking, hugely original hourí ★★★★★ (Fest Mag)

ĎA tricksy nugget of meta-comedyí (Guardian)

ĎDoesnít sacrifice laughs for the sake of artistic stretchí ★★★★ (Chortle)

★★★★★ (Mirror)
