Chris McCausland – Comedy

Chris McCausland

I have to write this bit in the third person apparently. It’s meant to sound like somebody else has written it, even though really it’s just me blowing my own trumpet. Anyway, deep breath, here goes.


Chris McCausland is a British stand-up comedian from Liverpool.

Chris has been performing stand-up since 2003 and is a regular face on British television.

He has made multiple appearances across such flagship comedy programmes as Have I Got News for You – Would I Lie to You? – Live at the Apollo – QI – 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown… and much more.

Chris has performed all over the world, including across Asia and the Middle East. He has spent almost two decades travelling the country performing stand-up, and has long been firmly established at the very top of the UK’s live comedy circuit.
