No tricks. No gimmicks. No plan. Just an hour in my company as we reach the end. Things will be over soon. We're nearly there everyone! Great work. But before we go, I'm making one last attempt to find connection in the here and now, to snuffle out any remaining joy in this rapidly crumbling world, before it's too late. Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2017. Chortle Comedian's Comedian Award winner 2018. 'Majestic and challenging' ***** (List). 'Impressively brutal and self-lacerating physical comedy' ***** (Skinny). 'Digressive, deeply unsettling and very funny' **** (Guardian).

I could try and describe this show but words don't seem to do it justice. All I know is that I genuinely can't remember a show I have loved this much or laughed this hard at. Do yourself a favour and get tickets.

An interesting show with superb delivery. Jordan has a great way of communicating with the audience. If, like me, you are wondering whether to Go or not - take a chance, you’ll be glad you did.

Was confused about it being scripted, or improvised. Whether he had content, or not.
People seemed to enjoy it none the less.

‘In all sincerity …” says Jordan Brookes at the beginning of the heartfelt audience address that closes his show. But sincerity is a devalued currency in Brookes’s show, and he knows it.

I’ve Got Nothing is stand-up’s answer to Waiting For Godot, with Jordan Brookes restlessly killing time with no apparent purpose, just counting down the clock until his hour’s up.  ...

Jordan Brookes has been on the ‘To review’ list since a couple of comics suggested him as a comedian to see. Although he’s been on the circuit for some time I had no idea what type of comedian he was. This was a leap into the unknown, which is the...

It takes a really good comic to find big laughs in something. It takes a great comic to find big laughs in nothing. ...

The Skinny (4/5 stars) 126 days ago

There’s a constant sense, throughout this hour, that Jordan Brookes is on the verge of some big revelation. “People’s attention spans tend to go after about fourteen minutes, right?” he asks. But Brookes is masterful in his ability to hold the audience’s attention, even without a big reveal. He has...
