Chris is a true icon of Australian comedy. With his quintessential Aussie persona, complete with a flannel shirt and thongs, he embodies the spirit of the average Australian.

His versatility has seen him perform everywhere from prestigious comedy clubs to the front bar of local pubs, and even on five "Tours of Duty" to entertain Australian troops in locations like East Timor and Afghanistan.

Chris's global performances have taken him to Scotland, Singapore, Hong Kong, and beyond. Revered by fellow comedians as one of the best in the industry, he effortlessly connects with audiences whether at a corporate event, a country football club, or any venue in between.
