“Comedy that must have taken a lot of work to construct, but Turner makes it all seem rather effortless. While he may sometimes mine for laughs in esoteric places, he consistently digs up comedy gold” – The West Australian
“His material is unashamedly clever and sparklingly original. Definitely one to watch” – The Arts Desk
Chris’s sharply written gags, assured stage presence and blisteringly quick improvised raps have established him as one of the best up-and-coming comics on the international circuit, performing in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand. His keen wit and intelligent wordplay have seen him rack up over 1.8 million views on YouTube; headline for 1 million Dutch comedy fans on RTL4′s flagship stand up show, The Comedy Factory; appear live on BBC Radio 2 and 6Music and perform sold-out runs at festivals worldwide.
In 2014, his debut show Pretty Fly won the Amused Moose People’s Choice award for best show at the Edinburgh Fringe, with many of his jokes featuring in ‘Best Jokes of the Fringe’ lists in national newspapers. His new show for 2015, XXV, has already toured to Perth Fringe World, where it was nominated for Best Comedy. He is a founding member of Racing Minds, one of the UK’s most respected improv troupes, with 5 sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe performing Aaaand Now For Something Completely Improvised and 500,000+ Soundcloud subscribers to their 50s style radio comedy The Wireless Podcast.

‘Often upstages much more experienced comics. Young, fresh and consistently hilarious’ – Hot Water Comedy
Rowe started performing stand-up in June 2010 at the age of 18. A little over a year later he was named Liverpool Comedian of the Year which led to him leaving his bar job and becoming a full-time comic. An instantly amenable onstage presence, Adam has quickly established himself as one of the brightest young talents in the country, compering for the likes of Highlight and Jongleurs on the UK circuit. His observational and anecdotal comedy is accessible to audiences of all ages. It’s always honest, creative and most importantly hilarious. He’s hosted the prestigious Big Value Showcase at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and will be previewing material from his forthcoming show ‘Opinionated Hypocrite’.
