Justin Moor House is heading to Unity Theatre in Liverpool and The Lowry in Salford, are you?

THESE days Justin's  not certain about anything apart from his uncertainty, Brexit looms, it appears the Cold War is being rebooted and that's before we begin to worry about what's happening in America…, closer to home he's starting to feel redundant as a parent. 1 kid is leaving home, the dog is getting older and needs fewer walks, and the youngest kid hits thirteen and cancels the family subscription to:- 'The Beano.'

On top of this the golden age of the Northern straight white male comedian has gone the way of the dinosaurs. Can he adapt to survive? What next for this 'Northern Joker?' What can he talk to his daughter about now she cares little for 'Dennis the Menace' and the 'Bash St Kids?' Hang on. Perhaps nothing has changed that much. When he was 13, the Russians were scary, the White House was a madhouse and he'd never been to Europe anyhow. Thinking back this is when his reading habits changed too, more 'Dark Knight' than 'Desperate Dan,' more 'Catwoman' than 'Minnie the Minx.' Perhaps our heroes never went away… They just waited for us to pick them up again. Perhaps she just needs a different type of comic….

Justin has performed around the world and his TV and film credits include:- tiger faced Young Kenny in 'Phoenix Nights,' Ken Loach's 'Looking for Eric,' 'Live At The Apollo,' 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow,' '8 out of 10 Cats' and 'Alan Davies - As Yet Untitled.' He's also a regular contributor to BBC's 'The Premier League show.' He has won 'Celebrity Mastermind' majestically, won fortunes for charity on 'Celebrity Storage Hunters' and lost even more magnificently on 'Celebrity Eggheads' and 'Pointless Celebrities,' not once, but twice!

On the radio, Justin has written and starred in 2 series of his own Radio 4 sitcom:- 'Everyone Quite Likes Justin' and often appears on Radio 4's 'The News Quiz.' He's a regular on 5 Live's 'Fighting Talk.' He is also a frequent guest on 'Shaun Keaveny's Breakfast Show' and Radcliffe and Maconie in 'The Afternoon' (both 6 Music). He also pops up on TalkSport often, as well as helming his own critically acclaimed podcast:- 'About 30 Minutes, No More Than 45.'

Thousands of City visitors have already set sail on the iconic Mersey Ferries this summer and with the 2018 season coming to a close in just a few weeks, organisers are urging would be passengers to buy their tickets now or risk missing out.

Gary Evans, from Mersey Ferries said:- "Our evening cruises really are 1 of the most unique nights out in the North West. The 2018 programme has been incredibly popular and has appealed to such a diverse audience as it provides a memorable mix of music, dancing and live entertainment that can be enjoyed with friends or family. We've had customers onboard who are interested in the music, some who appreciate the fascinating history of the waterfront and some who simply want to enjoy an evening taking in breath taking views. With just a few weeks of the summer programme remaining, we're encouraging people to act fast if they want to get their hands on the remaining tickets before it's too late."
