Chris Betts

"An enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics." The Independent
"Amazingly funny!" The List
"Outrageous and unpredictable fun" Edinburgh Festival Magazine

Known for being both a quick-witted MC and a superb addition to any bill, Chris Betts has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence.

Chris has opened for Tom Green and Rob Schneider and made appearances at comedy festivals all over the world including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival, SXSW, Rotterdam Comedy Festival and the Zulu Comedy Festival.

After moving to London in 2014 he was chosen to appear as part of the prestigious package show The Comedy Reserve at the Pleasance during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He was a finalist in both the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year competition and the 2015 NATYs (New Act of the Year) at the Bloomsbury Theatre.

Chris has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous and has been entertaining audiences across the UK ever since his arrival.
