Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2018
Just the Tonic Saturday Night Comedy: Stables Market, Camden, London, 2019
Wigan ex-Postman Chris Washington was a guest on Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2018. Washington provided a selection of stories that had lots of Northern humour. Washington was a natural story-teller and was very entertaining. His down-to-earth style is completely engrossing and as I connected to the stories of his working-class upbringing.
Washington was first on the bill at Just the Tonic Saturday Night Comedy in London when I went along in January 2019. He was a lot more confident on stage this time around building the comedy with tales of school life and growing up in a Northern town. He was extremely endearing and likeable with the crowd delivering razor sharp humour instead of delivering post.
He is definitely one to watch and I hope to see him again soon.
