Featuring

Chris Betts

Chris Betts appearing at this event

Chris Betts has performed all across Canada and the United States at independent venues, comedy clubs, and international festivals including the Comedy Works in Montreal, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival. He moved to London in 2012, since when he has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2014. He has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence. Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His material is a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous. 'Chris Betts is tremendous' (Such Small Portions) 'Betts is in the upper echelon of the city's performers; universally respected and admired for his professionalism, dedication and unique perspective of the world' (www.examiner.com) 'unhurried delivery that reeled the audience in... unflappable stage presence' (London Is Funny) '... properly hilarious' (What's On London) '... an enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics' (The Independent).

He made his big screen debut in 2009 in Ken Loach’s Looking For Eric – a hit feature film at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or. A prolific comic, he is a writer on John Bishop’s Britain (BBC1) and has helped make the show a ratings success.
