A gifted performer, Chris Brooker has taken his unique mix of comedy and improvisation to stages all over the world. After a decade on the UK comedy circuit Chris has forged a fine reputation for himself as a stand-up comedian and compère. His versatility has seen him play to audiences of all sizes and backgrounds, winning them over with his infectious enthusiasm, swift wit and immense likeability. Dubbed comedy's ginger Viking by a promoter, he really is a larger than life character.
A regular performer at the nation's finest comedy clubs, Chris can charm audiences of every sort, size and background. Equally at home at a sportsman's dinner or in front of two thousand bikers at a rally, you'll rarely see the same show twice from him.
With three full length shows under his belt, Chris is also an award winning television writer. A former member of ComedySportz, the resident improvised comedy troupe at Manchester's Comedy Store, Chris made history in 2008 when he became the first British player to be selected for the All Star Team at The Comedy League World Championships in Portland, Oregon.
Chris is also known for his efforts in chronicling a full year of his comedy performances in his online gig diaries. These have proven to be immensely popular with comedians, promoters and audience members across the world. They can be viewed in their entirety at http://chrisbrooker.eroscomedy.com/diary/ .
