Chris Washington


Rising star Chris Washington is taking the comedy industry and audiences alike by storm. With bags of northern charm, Chris is fresh from a hugely successful debut run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, during which he received a sparkling nomination for the coveted Edinburgh comedy award for Best Newcomer with his solo stand-up hour, ‘Dream Big (Within Reason)’.

Re:Play Breakthrough Comedian of the Year Winner and a finalist in the Magners New Comedy Act in 2015, Chris has proved he’s a definite one to watch, being likened to a “Peter Kay for the smart phone generation”. A favourite on the live circuit he’s already supported the likes of Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour and recently co-hosted Jason Manford’s weekend radio show for Absolute Radio.
