Chris's polite brand of observational comedy has charmed and delighted audiences across the country, winning him hordes of loyal fans.
Chris Addison Star of the BAFTA winning comedy The Thick Of It, and his own BBC TWO sitcom Lab Rats, Mr. la-di-da smartypants Addison is also regarded as one of the most versatile stand-ups in the country. With his pacy, energetic routines and faultless delivery, he has charmed audiences, Perrier judges (who nominated him twice) and critics alike as a top class purveyor of smartarse daftness, whimsy, perspiration, lies, jokes and flapping about. When he's not been appearing on Have I Got News For You or starring in Armando Iannucci's forthcoming feature film In The Loop, he's spent most of the last couple of years sitting in a shed at the bottom of his garden writing Lab Rats, a couple of books (Cautionary Tales For Grown-Ups and It Wasn't Me: Why Everyone Else Is To Blame And You're Not) and two series for BBC Radio 4, one of which - (The Ape That Got Lucky) went on to win the Sony Award in 2006. So this show is a rare opportunity to see him live right there in front of you on a stage, doing talking and that. You should go. You really should. "The best stand-up I've seen." The Observer "He's brilliant. No question." The Times "Downright hilarious. His stories reduced a packed crowd to tears of helpless laughter." The Sunday Times "Superlative, intelligent comedy." The Daily Telegraph "A fantastic show. Flawless." The Independent
