This year has seen Chris host his own show, Chris Ramsey’s Comedy Fringe, four special highlight shows for BBC Three, present BBC Three’s 8 hour-long Comedy Marathon live at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and co-host a special show on BBC Radio 2 with Al Murray the Pub Landlord for Children in Need.
Chris's act is often described as adult, though he is suited to both mixed and male only audiences. More recently, he has proved a massive success in front of family audiences, leading to regular worldwide bookings on P & O Cruise ships. His style combines stand up comedy and joke telling with his off the cuff approach to whatever situation he is in. Often putting down the microphone to get amongst the audience, Chris delivers his observational view of life, touching on most subjects and whilst he was once no stranger to controversy, he has mellowed somewhat over the years! Very original, his aim is to poke fun at everything, including himself, and hopefully break down a few of the barriers that exist in the world today.
