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. He currently gigs for The Frog & Bucket, Manfords, Angel Comedy, Hilarity Bites, Headliners, and XS Malarkey, among many others.
Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His shows are a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous.
Betts began his comedy career in Montreal, Canada and has since performed all across Europe and North America. He’s made appearances at comedy festivals all over the world including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival.
Chris was chosen as part of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and he returned to the following year to perform his successful debut solo show, Social Animal.
In 2017 he will return to the Edinburgh Fringe. He has been published in the Huffington Post and the Alarmist and voices a number of characters in the cult hit animated comedy Sam Sweetmilk.
