Although hailed as the only blind comic on the stand up circuit, comedian Chris McCausland makes light of it. He usually begins with a crack about the irony of a blind man doing observational comedy and then speeds off into his entertaining and refreshing set, making wry and perceptive comments about the rich and famous, every day life and suchlike. Instantly likeable and definitely memorable. 'Proper stand up, honest straightforward and balls-out funny' (Chortle) 'A must see!' (The Sunday Times) 'Always excellent' (The Times) 'Truly brilliant' (Three Weeks) 'The new face of comedy in the UK' (ITV) 'Shining Light!' (Sunday Express) '... fabulously funny and a definite highlight' (Leicester Mercury).
