BBC Stand Up Show Live: Pleasance Dome, Edinburgh, 2009

Chris Martin played guest spots at BBC Stand Up Live and The Horne Section’s Question Sessions at Edinburgh and Always Be Comedy in London. His twenty-minute set at the London club in 2016 observed his life as a newly married man. The self-proclaimed ‘nice guy’ talked about his trip to a strip club with his wife; frightening his wife in the dark and the excitement of being a technology hero to his new in-laws. He engaged with the audience well.
Martin was a self-assured storyteller and there were funny markers along the way. The short connecting wisecracks were genuinely laugh-out-loud moments, lending rapidity to the routine.
