You’ve heard of Jay-Z, Eminem and Tupac… well get ready to be amazed by Chris Turner – a middleclass, British white guy who is giving them all a run for their freestyle rapping money.
Chris made his mark when his debut comedy show Pretty Fly won the ‘Amused Moose People's Choice Award’ for Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014. Since then he’s been picking up awards and impressing audiences in all corners of the globe with his sharply written gags and blisteringly quick improvised raps. He’ll ask an audience for five words and will then proceed to blow their minds with an award worthy improvised rap. It’s genius.
In this episode Chris chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about studying at Oxford, his huge tongue, being told he’d only live to 25 and his new life in America. He also manages to incorporate the English language’s longest non-scientific word floccinaucinihilipilification into a rap too. Prepare to be thoroughly impressed…
