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.
