About Chris Turner: We’re Where We Were

Los Angeles hasn’t changed Chris - he’s a Manchester lad, born and gluten-free bread. Living in a city where everyone follows their dreams, he looks at our hopes, ambitions, and the ones we eventually give up on. Join this award winning, freestyle rapping virtuoso for sharp gags, tricksy wordplay and jaw-dropping improvised bars that would make Drake green with envy. He promises to pronounce ‘aluminium garage’ correctly.

Chris’s quotable gags and rapid freestyle raps have established him as one of the most in-demand acts on the corporate circuit and at comedy clubs around the world. After his debut show Pretty Fly won the Amused Moose People's Choice award in 2014, Chris went on to win ‘Best Comedy’ at the Adelaide Fringe Weekly Awards and four consecutive nominations at Perth Fringeworld from 2014-2017. He’s headlined for 1 million Dutch comedy fans on RTL4's flagship stand up show The Comedy Factory and has performed live on BBC Radio 2 and 6Music.

Chris has collaborated with Yorkshire Tea to create Blessed are the Teamakers, a tea-centric rap that went viral with over 6 million views, and in May 2017 he appeared at renowned human rights conference the Oslo Freedom Forum. He also recently won the bronze at the Westside Comedy Showdown, one of the biggest comedy competitions in the US.

He is a founding member of Racing Minds, one of the Fringe's most respected improv troupes, who boast 7 sell-out Fringe runs, a twelve-part series of Writer’s Block recorded for Audible, and who have over 600,000 Soundcloud subscribers to their 50’s style radio comedy The Wireless Podcast. Catch Racing Minds this August at the Pleasance Queen Dome, 11:55am.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Chris Turner: We’re Where We Were are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
