With bags of northern charm, he’s fresh from a hugely successful debut run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, during which he received a sparkling nomination for the coveted lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer with his solo stand-up hour, ‘Dream Big (Within Reason)’. Since becoming Re: Play Breakthrough Comedian of the Year Winner and a finalist in the Magners New Comedy Act in 2015, Chris has proved he’s a definite one to watch, being likened to a “Peter Kay for the smartphone generation”. A favorite on the live circuit he’s already supported the likes of Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour and recently co-hosted Jason Manford’s weekend radio show for Absolute Radio. 2018 has started with a bang for Chris, in January he brought his aforementioned Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated show to London’s Soho Theatre, followed by two sell-out shows at the Salford Lowry studio and invitations to perform at Latitude and Festival 41, Kendal Calling and Festival No. 6. Alongside stand-up Chris also released two online sketches for BBC Three’s ‘Quickies’ series, both earning over 1 million views and becoming two of their most successful of the series. He also has another exciting scripted project in development for TV and is now a roaring hit on your TV screens, headlining his own episode ‘Live From the BBC.’ “Hilarious Stories” Hull Daily Mail “Mark my words, he will be a big name” Love Comedy “He posts top quality comedy with a first class delivery” Buzz Comedy “Gaining big laughs from the really small stuff” The List “Funny, relatable and heartwarming” Broadway Baby “A timeless storytelling jokesmith” Beyond The Joke
