Chris Cantrill Comedy

Biography

I've been performing since December 2010, peddling a mix of stand up and storytelling, often incorporating illustrations which push PowerPoint presentations to well over 100mb in size. Common themes include my ongoing studies into the paranormal, maintenance of my Tamogotchi babysitting farm and moths. Lots of stuff about moths.

In October 2013 I performed my first show to a sold-out crowd. 'The Halloween Horror Compendium' gave audiences 3 stories, each more terrifying than the last (apart from the middle one), held together with absurd stitches.

'Welcome to Tiddleminster' was my follow-up show which went to the Edinburgh festival and sauntered away with a glowing 5 star review. That's a star for each of the people who saw it!

I have been a finalist in the Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year competition and won the Comedy Hat Comedian of the Year award 2016.


Holding it all together is Cantrill himself, able to produce both simple and bizarre punchlines with unerring skill... An absolutely inspired hour of comedy
