Chris Betts
is known for being both a quick-witted MC and a superb addition to any bill, and has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence. He’s done tour support for Tom Green and Rob Schneider and performed at festivals across North America and Europe.

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.

“An enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics.” – The Independent
