"I have gigged with Chris a few times now and he seems to be coming on leaps and bounds. Although still a new act Chris has the makings of an excellent MC, with a nice natural stage presence, a good balance between audience interaction and material and the desire to learn and improve. He is also lovely offstage too."
Scott Bennett, Comedian.
“I"ve gigged with Chris quite a bit now and I have to say he"s as solid a performer as you"re ever likely to see! He never fails to get a laugh. I"ve seen him have all age groups in fits of laughter, He"s performed at several of our Fancy a Gag? nights, often as a very reliable and jovial host. The crowd love him and he always gets them involved. If you get the chance, book Chris on one of your nights and do it the Richmond way!”
