Chris Turner

Comedy Rapper

He’s an unlikely freestyle rapper - with a taste for tea and Roman numerals.

Chris Turner is an award-winning comic, known on the comedy club and corporate circuit for his neat gags and improvised raps. The West Australian has dubbed him “the thinking man’s comedian”.

Chris is a veteran of three Edinburgh Festivals and was nominated for Best Comedy at Perth Fringeworld 2017. He’s racked up over 5 million views on YouTube, and is no stranger to audiences on BBC Radio 2, 6Music and RTL4’s standup show, The Comedy Factory. He is also a favourite on the corporate circuit, and recently worked with Yorkshire Tea to create a tea-centric rap called Blessed are the Teamakers.

His 2017 Edinburgh show - What a Time to be Alive - will spill the beans about his recent move to America.

And there's more! He will be joined by Simon Singh, Richard Wiseman, Mark Mullen, Laetitia Cailleteau, John Kershaw, Jeremy Silver, Imogen Heap, Dr Justin Sanchez, Dr Anita Sengupta, Di Mainstone, Darren Jobling, Dan Biddle, Adrian Westaway, Tom Scott, Sophie Bostock, others.
