Chris is one of Australia’s premier comedy stars. He’s an Aussie bloke, a yobbo or a bogan, from his flannelette shirt to his double plugger thongs. His "Hoganesque" style of comedy appeals to every average Australian and touches on the delicate issues of beer, sport and relationships.
Chris started performing comedy in October 1997 and in just six months had won the prestigious Triple J Raw Comedy Award for Australia’s Best New Comedian. It didn’t take him long to rise to feature status. His accomplishments are outstanding and they include:
- National Winner - Triple J Raw Comedy Competition

Chris’ first CD single was released through EMI Music Australia entitled Bloke. A hilarious send up of Meredith Brooks’ song Bitch, the song landed at Number 15 first week in and subsequently went to number one, achieving platinum sales exceeding 120,000 units.
