Thinking there might be more to life than sales (and realising that he would never play for Manchester United), Justin Moorhouse took up comedy at the comparatively late age of 29. With his northern charm and cheekiness he quickly grabbed the attention of the Manchester comedy scene.
After supporting the city’s best known comedians, including Johnny Vegas and Peter Kay, Justin became a headline act in his own right. He is perhaps most recognisable as the hapless Young Kenny in Phoenix Nights – who spent the whole of the second series with his face painted as a tiger – but he has also appeared in Coronation Street, as rival pub landlord Dean Upton, and was a winner of Celebrity Mastermind.
Justin presented a Sony nominated radio show on Key 103 for more than a decade, and has performed two series of his own sitcom, Everyone Quite Likes Justin, on Radio 4. He has also appeared in Shameless and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and the much-lauded Ken Loach film Looking For Eric. He wrote the acclaimed Radio 4 comedy drama, An Insurance Inspector Calls, and is a regular guest on The News Quiz.
