"Mark my words..he will be a big name"
"Chris Washington is naturally funny and could easily become a big name on the comedy circuit."
"Funny, relatable and heartwarming."
Rising star Chris Washington is taking the comedy industry and audiences alike by storm. With bags of Northern charm, he had 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).
2018 started with a bang for Chris, in January he brought this Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated show to London’s Soho Theatre, followed by two sell-out shows at the Salford Lowry Studio and invitations to perform at Latitude, Festival 41, Kendal Calling and Festival No. 6.
Since becoming 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 smartphone generation. A favourite on the live circuit he has already supported Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour.
Chris also released two online sketches for BBC Three’s Quickies series, both earning over 1 million views and becoming two of their most successful of the series.
His most recent Edinburgh show Chris Washington:Raconteur 2019 was received to great critical acclaim and rave reviews.
With a cheeky Northern charm and hilarious tales it’s clear to see why Chris is flying up the comedy ladder.
