Chris Turner Biography

Gifted comedian Chris Turner rolls out quotable gags and improvised raps at rapid speed, fashioning rhymes around whatever’s on audiences’ minds, from corporates to festivals.

Inspired by his love of hip-hop from the age of 12, Chris made a name for himself in entertainment by artfully weaving together everything from gangsta beats to natural disasters to smurfs in unscripted and inventive amalgamations.

A founding member of improv troupe Racing Minds, the comic and rapper has free-styled his way through five sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe; heavily applauded for their show Aaaand Now for Something Completely Improvised (set to return in 2016), their popular 50s style radio comedy The Wireless Podcast has also been a hit with over 500000 SoundCloud subscribers.

Gifted comedian Chris Turner rolls out quotable gags and improvised raps at rapid speed, fashioning rhymes around whatever’s on audiences’ minds, from corporates to festivals.

Inspired by his love of hip-hop from the age of 12, Chris made a name for himself in entertainment by artfully weaving together everything from gangsta beats to natural disasters to smurfs in unscripted and inventive amalgamations.

A founding member of improv troupe Racing Minds, the comic and rapper has free-styled his way through five sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe; heavily applauded for their show Aaaand Now for Something Completely Improvised (set to return in 2016), their popular 50s style radio comedy The Wireless Podcast has also been a hit with over 500000 SoundCloud subscribers.

Nationally acclaimed for producing the 'best jokes of the fringe', Chris’s show Pretty Fly secured the Amused Moose People's Choice award in 2014.

His keen wit, intelligent wordplay and assured stage presence has holidayed beyond the UK to the USA, India and Australia. While touring Perth Fringe World, his show XXV (2015) was nominated for Best Comedy and is fearlessly personal; diagnosed (thankfully incorrectly) at 15 with Marfan Syndrome, a condition that affects the body’s connective tissue, Chris may have been made aware of his own mortality, but this has not knocked his vim and carpe diem attitude.

Set to return down under in 2016, he continues to entertain as the second half of comedy duo Chrysalids with Alice Winn; they bring together their improvisational skills to amuse, unravel and recreate a stream of quirky characters and imagined situations from two simple suggestions.

As well as racking up over 2 million views on YouTube, Chris has headlined for 1.1 million Dutch comedy fans on The Comedy Factory (RTL4's flagship stand up show) and appeared live on BBC Radio Two.

In the UK corporate market, he is a favourite with football clubs, having performed at many end-of-season parties, supporters' dinners, and player of the year awards for multiple Premiership teams.
