Chris Turner

Since starting stand-up in 2009, Chris’s sharply written gags, assured stage presence and commanding delivery have established him as one of the best young comics on the circuit.

Intelligent wordplay and deliciously dark jokes nestle amongst a set rich with puns and oblique observations, all coupled with a talent for improvisation and physical comedy honed from three years with Edinburgh Festival favourites The Oxford Imps (Sell-Out Show 2009, **** - Fest, ThreeWeeks, Hairline).

A useful and tricksy wit. His timely gag about keeping the Christ in Christmas was especially clever, and he has a mischievous sparkle to his delivery”. Steve Bennett, Chortle

His youthful appearance belies his ability; he seems to have the experience of years which, paired with his enthusiasm and brace-laden smile, makes for a very exciting performance.” The Skinny Ed Fest 2011
