He will preview material from his forthcoming much-anticipated Edinburgh Festival show ‘Feeling Lucky’, having established himself as one of the most sought after new comedic talents in Britain. Last year he was nominated for the Fosters Comedy Award (formerly the Perrier) for Best Show at the Edinburgh Festival which effectively ensures that his 2012 Edinburgh run will be a total sell out and will prompt reams of column inches. Described by Evening Standard as a ‘brilliantly engaging natural storyteller’ and esteemed comedy website Chortle as ‘possessing funny bones able to make even the mundane hilarious’ he has supported Al Murray on his UK theatre tour as well as having undertaken his own debut solo touring show around Britain in 2012, which has been a sold out critical success.
He has a positive slew of television credits to his name including ’8 Out Of 10 Cats’, ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, ‘Argumental’, ‘Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks’, ‘Celebrity Juice’, ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’, ‘Richard Bacon’s Beer And Pizza Club’ and ‘Show And Tell’. He has also recently added acting to his C.V as he is playing the lead role in the forthcoming BBC sitcom ‘Hebburn’ alongside comedy legend Vic Reeves and is in the process of developing his own show for BBC3, a twitter-based programme entitled ‘@ChrisRamsey’.
A bone dry personality with a collection of instantly quotable one liners sown liberally throughout his set. He was a finalist in the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year competition and has been described as a ‘real standout performer whose slow build up to quirky one-liners had tears streaming down my cheeks’ by Bridlington Free Press.
‘Stormed the gig with well observed tales of parenting and unfortunate lookalikes delivered with an easy charm’ – bbc.co.uk.
