"He is an elevated brand of comedy" The GuardianAdd to my shortlist
Chris began his career by winning the Northwest Comedian of the Year Award, swiftly followed by an appearance in the legendary Comedy Zone at the Edinburgh Festival, and a Perrier Best Newcomer Award nomination for his debut solo show in Edinburgh the following year. He has made appearances as a panellist on Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie To You, Mock the Week and 8 Out of 10 Cats. This is in addition to appearing on Live at the Apollo and The Graham Norton Show. He has performed his solo show at theatres up and down the country and headlining at the most prestigious comedy clubs including The Comedy Store, The Stand and The Buzz Club. He has been nominated twice for the Perrier Award and a second Barry Humphries Award nomination for Civilization. He co-wrote and co-starred in Radio 4's political satire The Department.
WHAT he OFFERS YOU
One of the most versatile comics on the circuit, Chris' scathing wit and carefully constructed presentations will leave audiences truly entertained. He was a stand-up for 13 years and "everything comes from that". He hits the comedy nail with some force. His act had everything from puerile (but funny) silliness right up to gags about rhetorical structures, all delivered at breakneck speed and with unswerving enthusiasm.
