Show 270 - Geoff Norcott

Everyone's favourite Conservative comedian joins Matt for a brilliant discussion about class and politics. As well as touring and appearing on various TV shows, Geoff is also on the BBC Diversity Board and tells Matt exactly what it involves and why he's so passionate about increasing class representation at the BBC. The pair also discuss the realities of being a right-of-centre comedian. Would Geoff ever vote Labour? If so could he ever tell his audience? How do his fans feel about the Tories at the moment? And would he ever stand for Parliament? It's full of insights not just about Conservative voters and what motivates them, but also about what Labour needs to do to win an election again.
