Chris Ramsey is a critically acclaimed stand-up comedian and actor, with an uncanny ability to spin a witty anecdotal joke out of fresh air. A regular panellist on such shows as Celebrity Juice and a featured star of BBC2's Hebburn, Chris is impossibly likeable and equally hilarious. His comic banter is legendary, and once led to him being thrown off the Soccer AM Sofa for misbehaving - no wonder his subsequent stand-up show was entitled The Most Dangerous Man On Saturday Morning Television!
Chris began his comedic career in 2007, hosting an open-mic night in Newcastle upon Tyne. A year later, he was a nominee for the Chortle Student Comedian Of The Year and in 2010 he took his first solo show, Agoraphobic, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. His 2011 show, Offermation, was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award and recorded for BBC Radio 4. Chris' 2012 Edinburgh show, Feeling Lucky, was followed by a national tour. In 2014, Chris appeared on Live At The Apollo for the first time.
As well as playing Jack Pearson in Jason Cook's BBC Two sitcom Hebburn, Chris has appeared as a guest or contestant on a number of TV shows, including Mock The Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Richard Bacon's Beer & Pizza Club, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Sweat the Small Stuff, Celebrity Mastermind, Celebrity Squares, A Question of Sport: Super Saturday, Virtually Famous, Celebrity Benchmark, Russell Howard's Stand Up Central and It's Not Me, It's You.
In 2015, Chris took part in the Channel 4 series Time Crashers, and also presented BBC3's eight hour-long Comedy Marathon live at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In addition, he co-hosted a special show on BBC Radio 2 with Al Murray, The Pub Landlord, for Children in Need.
