GEOFF NORCOTT 
I BLAME THE PARENTS*

This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong. 

Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever's wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers... some bigot from four hundred years ago.
 
Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there's an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is it easier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life. With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?
 
As seen on The Last Leg (C4), Would I lie To You? (BBC1), Mock the Week (BBC2), Live at The Apollo (BBC2), The Mash Report (BBC2), 8 Out of 10 Cats (C4) and The Duchess (Netflix).
