Justin Moorhouse

About me…

I’m a comedian, actor, writer and radio presenter.

I’ve done a couple of pantomimes and more theatrically, two very lovely plays at the Royal Exchange in Manchester.

I’m very good at hosting corporate events and  after dinner stuff. (I’ve got my own black suit and everything)

I write and appear in the Radio 4 sitcom called Everyone Quite Likes Justin.

I’m a vegetarian, dog owner, father of two and I like Batman quite a bit.

I won Celebrity Mastermind in 2011
– my chosen subject was Les Dawson.

I once delivered a car to Sally on Coronation Street.
(I was Doug, she told me to do one. I did one. Then I went back to Weatherfield for three episodes as Dean Upton the landlord of The Flying Horse).

Charity Partner

Oasis Community Housing exist to reignite a hope and a future for everyone facing homelessness. We believe that anyone’s life can be transformed however dark things may seem, and that everyone has worth and value. Every year we walk with over 2,000 people as they journey out of homelessness across our North East and London based projects.

We address the immediate needs and root causes of homelessness; through supported housing projects, unique residential projects for mums and babies who need intensive help to stay together, crisis intervention for rough sleepers, aid for women living with domestic abuse and programmes for those furthest from the job market.

As we put a roof over people’s heads and support them to overcome the barriers they face, we strive to provide a place of belonging where they can find community, relationships, security and a new future.
