Chris Betts has performed all over the world, and has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the smartest and funniest acts on the circuit. Known for being both a quick-witted compere and a superb addition to any bill, he has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence.
Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His shows are a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous. Betts began his comedy career in Montreal, Canada and has since performed all across Europe and North America.
