Dates

TUE 28 FEBRUARY–SUN 05 MARCH, 2017

Tickets

$15–$27*
Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Based Comedy

Ten years ago Chris did a short stint in a maximum security prison.

This show is for anyone who didn’t read his scathing review on Trip Adviser. Spoiler alert… he wasn’t a fan.

Truly a world class performer, you’ll never forget his comedy! Known for his searing angular prose and regarded by many as one of the finest comedians and comedy writers in the business.

In 2016 Chris took home the coveted Melbourne International Comedy Festival Piece of Wood Award. Also winning the Comedian of the Year (won by Carl Baron, Flacco and The Umbilical Brothers).

Sharp witted and daringly clever is guaranteed to bring any audience undone.

 

Reviews
