Jordan Brookes - On The Mic

Body of Work is a genuine attempt by Jordan Brookes to pay tribute to his relationship with his nan. Not that you’d get that from this short interview.

It’ll be a mix of stand-up, unnecessary confessions, a bit of physical stuff, and a few awkward pauses.

What does Edinburgh mean to you?

A month in Neverland.

Who inspires you and why?

My dog. I find him such a pain. I’m inspired to make enough money to buy a big house so I can spend less time being in the same room as him.

Describe your best or worst experiences on stage.

When a woman shouted ‘kill yourself’ following a bit where I’d pretended my face was a mask and was struggling to get it off.

Describe your best or worst review.

The best one I had last year was from a publication who docked me a star because the lights had blown and I had to use a lamp.

If you weren’t a performer, what would you be?

A dog whisperer.

What was the last book you read?

The Girls by Emma Cline. So wonderful.

Ask and then answer a question of your own choosing.

Q: Do I have time for this?

A: No

Imagine that the BBC have asked you to produce a primetime show. What would it be and who else would be involved?

It would be called Tearjerker, and would involve contestants competing to shed as many tears into a bucket as possible while thinking of sad things. Whoever hits the fill line first wins.
