Chris Addison

Biography

Chris Addison is a critically acclaimed stand up renowned for his versatility, his pacy, energetic routines and faultless delivery. Both his 2004 and 2005 solo Edinburgh shows sold out, and were nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award.

After starring in BBC Two's multi award winning comedy 'The Thick of It', for which he received a British Comedy Award nomination for Best Newcomer, Chris made his big screen debut in Academy Award nominated 'In the Loop', an exciting, fast paced political comedy that looks at what happens when the people in power realise their careers are on the line.

Over the years Chris has become even more recognisable on our screens having appeared on Live at the Apollo, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and regularly on QI and Mock the Week. He has also appeared frequently as a panellist, and as the host of Have I Got News For You.

Chris's talent also extends behind the scenes, as he is an established writer who has written and starred in his own sitcom, Lab Rats, for BBC Two, and has written two books: Cautionary Tales for Grown-Ups and It Wasn't Me. His further television writing credits include: Harry Hill's TV Burp (ITV1) and TFI Friday (Channel 4).

Chris has enjoyed critical acclaim as one third of comedy show The Department (BBC Radio 4) and for his radio show The Ape That Got Lucky (BBC Radio 4), which won a Sony Radio Academy Award in 2006. Last year Chris hosted 7 Day Sunday on BBC Radio 5 live with fellow comedians Andy Zaltzman and Sarah Millican.

In 2010 he returned to Edinburgh with his self titled show, which subsequently toured the country.

In 2011 Chris hosted an episode of Dave's One Night Stand and authored an episode of My Funniest Year for Channel 4. Chris recorded his series Show and Tell for E4 and in the autumn he returned to his role as a regular member of the Mock the Week panel. Chris released his first DVD 'Chris Addison LIVE' in Autumn 2011 before going on tour with his new live show The Time is Now, Again.

Chris is currently on the second leg of his national tour The Time is Now, Again.
