Chris Turner

“An exemplary writer of quotable gags” – Chortle, May ’11

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 up-and-coming one-liner 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 nifty writer…absolute gold-plated bankers, brilliantly inspired lines even the most experienced punslinger would be proud of”.

Steve Bennett, Chortle; August 2010

“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; December 2010

“Excellent, excellent, excellent, good, smashing, excellent” - Steve Hall (We Are Klang)

“[Turner] delivers with aplomb…he has the whole room behind him” ★★★★ - The Oxford Student; October 2010
