Standup på Stift presenterer: Chris Betts (CANADA)
Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His shows are a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous.
Betts began his comedy career in Montreal, Canada and has since performed all across Europe and North America. He’s made appearances at comedy festivals all over the world including Edinburgh Festival Fringe, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival.
“An enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics." - The Independent
“ A confident style... a glint of steelier edge." - Chortle
“ Tremendous." - Such Small Portions
Betts is back, but he's got a problem. What do you do when you can't trust the law, the elderly or even yourself? Join him for a hilarious dissection of human nature, featuring wishing wells, secrets and trick or treating. This thoughtful, silly and crass Canadian jokesmith with a gift for 'drolly original reasoning' and 'zinging turn of phrase' (Scotsman) is a must-see. Betts's rigorous curiosity and lively imagination make him one of the most exciting acts around. (Daily Telegraph) Top 20 Jokes of the Fringe 2015. 'An hour is not nearly enough' **** (Fresh Fringe).
