Joz Norris is Dead. Long Live Mr Fruit Salad.

Joz Norris is the winner of the Comedians' Choice Award for Best Show 2019, and was also nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality for his show Joz Norris Is Dead. Long Live Mr Fruit Salad, which subsequently transferred to the Soho Theatre. He is a key member of the Chortle Award-winning Weirdos Collective, and a Board Member of the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society. He has been seen in BBC3's Blindboy Undestroys The World, ITV2's Elevenish and Dave's The Dave Talks and has been heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra's The Comedy Club Interviews.

Joz Norris has retired or possibly died, who cares?
All that matters is that Mr Fruit Salad, a fictional chimaera he created as a form of self-care, has developed autonomy and is putting on a solo show. A sort of absurdist meditation on anxiety and grief performed by an idiot from Pontefract who doesn’t exist.

  • "Fantastic." - The Guardian

  • "Totally brilliant."- Chortle

  • "Joyously silly." - Evening Standard 

  • "Joyous and baffling...will leave your head scratched and your sides aching…" - ★★★★★ Young Perspective

Helen Bauer: Little Miss Baby Angel Face.

Helen enjoys a drama. She's her mother's daughter, taking a small situation, blowing it up, then getting upset that it's out of her control.

Just like all the best reality TV. At the same time, she dreams of being a sweet angel handling any drama with grace. Who doesn’t overthink everything and plan for how she will have all eyes on her at the right moment.





As seen and heard on ITV2, BBC Two, BBC Three, CBBC, Comedy Central, BBC Radio 1 and Radio 4. Basically all the channels.
