Brilliantly wry and award winning comic (Best Show – Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival 2012) – Chris Stokes has been performing stand-up professionally since 2009. His career has seen him support Milton Jones, Pete Firman and Stewart Francis on tour, appeared on ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’ (Channel Dave), BBC Radio 4, 5Live, BBC Three and Radio X and taken five critically acclaimed solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. With a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase, Stokes has been described as playing on social misconceptions and dismantling them both on stage and on the page via gag-packed first-hand anecdotes told with a charming and offbeat sincerity.
Chris is also a talented actor having starred in a number of plays and online sketches. In 2017 Chris was named on the BBC’s New Talent Hot-List and has had a number of online shorts released through BBC including a ‘Top Ten’ and 4 sketches for their hugely successful ‘Quickies’ series.
Chris has written for the The News Quiz, The Now Show and Have I Got News For You. He is currently working on his first comedy drama script and has most recently released a new podcast with Masud Milas and Sooz Kempner – ‘Mystery on the Rocks’, produced by Studio 71.
