"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: He posts top quality comedy with a first class delivery "
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 lastminute.com Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer with his solo stand-up hour, ‘Dream Big (Within Reason)’.
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’s already supported the likes of Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour.
2018 started with a bang for Chris, in January he brought his aforementioned 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 and Festival 41, Kendal Calling and Festival No. 6.
Alongside stand-up 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.
With a cheeky Northern charm and hilarious tales it’s clear to see why Chris is flying up the comedy ladder.
