Re:Play Breakthrough Comedian of the Year Winner – Chris Washington, has proved he’s a definite one to watch, being likened to a Peter Kay for the smartphone generation. A favourite on the live circuit he has already supported Jason Manford and Tom Stade on tour!
Chris Washington is taking the comedy industry and audiences by storm. With bags of Northern charm, he had a hugely successful debut run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, during which he received a sparkling nomination for the coveted Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer with his solo stand-up hour Dream Big (Within Reason).
2018 started with a bang for Chris, in January he brought this Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated show to London’s Soho Theatre, followed by two sell-out shows at the Salford Lowry Studio and invitations to perform at Latitude, Festival 41, Kendal Calling and Festival No. 6.
Chris also released two online sketches for BBC Three’s Quickies series, both earning over 1 million views and becoming two of their most successful of the series.
