CHRIS WASHINGTON

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.
