“Weaponised comedy, locked and loaded. It is awesome.”
- Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
“An intense, unique show unlike anything else you'll see on the Fringe” - Bruce Dessau - Beyond The Joke *****
“We need more voices like his, if only to prove the
industry hasn’t become completely corporatized”
- Steve Bennet - Chortle ****
"This is whole-hearted stuff that takes me back to the days when
comedy was all loud with anger and flat with northern vowels.
He wellies into his set with an infectious
enthusiasm and an obvious love for the job.
- Kate Copstick, The Scotsman ***
Chris McGlade has been a comedian for 30+ years and played many different venues in every possible situation you could think of.
Working all over the world ... from the unforgiving working men’s clubs of the North of England, all the way to the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood Comedy Store on the Rock Comedy show with American comedy superstar Dane Cook and the prestigious LA Improv Comedy Club!
Successfully performing at the Edinburgh and Glasgow Comedy festivals with two critically acclaimed shows, Chris has gigged alongside Frank Carson at the Sunderland Empire Theatre and also played the prestigious Leicester Square Theatre with his own Comedy Renegades show.
In 2017 Chris finished runner up in the Leicester Square ‘Old Comedian of the Year’ competition.
Chris McGlade is not only an excellent, well crafted comedian, his acting isn’t bad either recently starring as 'Pete' in Ken Loaches hit film ‘I Daniel Blake’ and also a year long run as the role of Boxing Coach George in Billy Elliot the musical in London's West End back in 2010/2011. Trust me when i say, this show is not to be missed!
A man who is passionate with political views and beliefs, Chris started a political campaign in his home town of Redcar
back in 2004 against the local authority and the countries biggest house builder, Persimmon Homes.
He beat them in 2010 in the House of Lords and single handily influenced the change
in English law regarding open spaces … uncovering council corruption in the process.
Chris also stood as an independent candidate for Redcar in the 2005 general election and came fourth with 2379 votes -
the seventh highest fourth place in the country during that particular general election .
Both of Chris’ critically acclaimed show’s ’Infant Hercules’ and ‘Northern Monkey’, have allowed Chris to express and share his passionate beliefs ….
in particular his views on freedom of speech, and the middle/working class divide.
Opening Act - Dawn Rigby
Middle Act - Howard Anstock
