Chris Wainhouse set for hilarious Big Gig

AFTER a white-bread, middle class upbringing, Chris turned out an arty-trendy sort of try-hard, and a magnet for dominant women.

A product of his environment, Chris lives a life of weird repetitions with no time for rational thought.

This sharp-witted comedian is coming to Ballina for a special Big Gig.

His daringly clever act has seen him perform with many comic greats such as Vince Sorrenti, Bruno Lucia, Jeff Green (UK), John Maloney (UK), Mark Mayer (UK), Arj Barker (USA) and Stevie Starr - The Regurgitator.

Chris' suave attitude has seen him steadily climb the comic ladder.

In 1998 he won the title of Comedian of the Year at the famous Harold Park Hotel in Sydney, joining past winners such as the Umbilical Brothers, Flacco, Carl Barron and Kenny Graham.

Chris was also successful in taking out the Grand Final for the 1999 Triple J Raw Comedy Competition, in Melbourne, which earned him a trip to Edinburgh Comedy Festival.

Chris is a regular headline act at some of the world's most prestigious comedy venues including The Sydney Comedy Store, Melbourne's Comedy Club, The Classic in Auckland and Jongluers in the UK.

He also regularly headlines in Singapore, Jakarta, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
