After studying Media at Leeds university, Chris immediately leapt into action and began missing his student lifestyle. In an attempt to recapture that spark, he completed an MA Scriptwriting course at Salford.
Realising the rest of the world was intent on 'growing up', Chris is now searching for that special someone to laugh at the rest of the world with. Or just be mates, y'know, let's not stress over it.
I've no real commitments, so just want to meet new people.
I've written a few scripts I'm quite proud of, and I'm always on the lookout for writing partners to bounce ideas off. I really love the collaborative process, as you reach places you'd never get to on your own. Having someone else work with you is also a good incentive to produce your best stuff to impress them.
I also paint and am pretty good with modelling clay, provided you want some sort of amusing character.
I'm also involved in amateur dramatics in an attempt to build confidence, try something new and meet people.
I love crosswords, especially cryptic crosswords and the smug sense of accomplishment you feel when you crack a particularly obtuse clue.
Stand Ups I love include: Stewart Lee, Simon Munnery, Tony Law, Richard Herring, Tim Heidecker, Maria Bamford, Greg Proops, The Actor Kevin Eldon, Bill Bailey, Sean Lock, Hans Teeuwen, Eddie Izzard back in the day, Harry Hill.

Food: I particularly enjoy Fish and seafood and could easily be a pescatarian, but for the social nightmare of asking people to make separate meals for me. I also have a ridiculously sweet tooth.
Gary Oldman, Gary Numan, Gary Coleman. Something's up there.
How to destroy the daddylonglegs.
Morgan Freeman's Inner Demons.
Was Prince Charming's surname Charming - say, Ian Charming - or was he just so arrogant as to decree that his subjects refer to him as such, because that's not an especially Charming trait. I don't see why women think Prince Charming was all that.
Weetos often hurt the roof of my mouth, but I still eat them. What a ridiculous creature I am.
I am reduced to a shameful, weeping wreck whenever I watch Toy Story 3.
