"Chris Lumb is no stranger to comedy, as the manager and performer of improv group "The Discount Comedy Checkout" he's played gigs with them for 12 years! In this time he’s developed an MC style which has fun with audiences and makes the night fully rounded.
With more strings to his comedy bow than a funny Robin hood he's a comedy director having award winning films played at festivals such as Raindance. He also started a youtube channel imaginatively titled Chris Lumb Comedy where he creates sketches and live show videos! As a keen impressionist Chris also appeared on Russell Howard's Good News performing his favourite :- Star Wars impressions!”
