Body of Work
If there are ‘rules’ to performing stand-up, Jordan Brookes tore them apart in his third solo offering. ‘Body of Work’ was an hour of constant misdirection and rug pulling. Brookes took every trope of an Edinburgh Fringe stand-up show and stamped all over it, right from the moment he introduced himself on stage from a backstage mic. It was a smart, mind-meddling hour that became a word-of-mouth and critical hit.
