Body of Work
In August 2015 Jordan's Nanna, Gwendoline Martha Brookes, passed away. She was 95. This show is a geuine attempt to pay tribute to her. That can't 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. Brookes' third solo hour of high wire stand-up and absurdism started out at a Free Festival venue before transferring to the Pleasance Courtyard to become the word-of-mouth success story of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017.
