IT will be friends reunited for one of the country’s top stand-up comedians when he performs a show in Bradford.

Glenn Moore brings his latest UK tour show, ‘Will You Still Need Me, Will You Still Feed Me, Glenn I’m Sixty Moore’, to The Studio, Morley Street, Bradford, on Saturday, October 29.

He says he will be staying with friends who have moved to Bradford when he comes to the city for the show.

He is regularly seen as a panellist on BBC Two’s Mock The Week. He made his last ever appearance on the show on October 14 as it finishes for good later this month.

His voice may be familiar to Bradfordians following his previous career. Glenn was a Sheffield-based newsreader for a host of radio stations across Yorkshire including Radio Aire around 2011.


Glenn combined the two roles of newsreader on radio stations and comedian as he started to ply his trade in comedy after moving to London following his stint in Yorkshire.

He says his time as a journalist prepared him for writing and constructing his comedy shows which now wow crowds across the country.

Glenn says he is constantly writing down jokes or ideas for his shows, adding he has hundreds of notepads with them in. He says when writing each stand-up tour show he places a host of post-it notes of ideas to put them together into his shows which feature a minimum of 300 jokes.

Glenn said: “I have done a couple of gigs in Bradford before.

“Some of my best friends have just moved to Bradford. I’m going to stay with them.

“One of my favourite things about going on tour is staying with friends.

"I do make sure there are a minimum of 300 jokes in my show. They are all threaded into a story."

Glenn says it is bittersweet for him that Mock The Week is finishing its run on the BBC.

He said: “Joining the show was completely life-changing for me.

“Before that, I had done a couple of very, very small things on TV and radio. They took a chance on me.

“They are so welcoming to newer comedians on Mock The Week. It’s a friendly atmosphere. I owe so much to it.”
