After starring in BBC Two's multi award winning comedy 'The Thick of It', for which Chris received a British Comedy Award nomination for Best Newcomer, he made his big screen debut in Academy Award nominated ‘In the Loop’, an exciting, fast paced political comedy that looks at what happens when the people in power realise their careers are on the line. Increasingly well known on camera, Chris’s talent also extends behind the scenes, as he is an established writer who has written and starred in his own sitcom, 'Lab Rats', for BBC Two, and has written two novels: 'Cautionary Tales for Grown-Ups' and 'It Wasn't Me'. His further television writing credits include: 'Harry Hill's TV Burp' (ITV1) and 'TFI Friday' (Channel 4).
Both his 2004 and 2005 solo Edinburgh shows sold out, and were nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award. Chris has also enjoyed critical acclaim as one third of comedy show 'The Department' (BBC Radio 4) and for his radio show 'The Ape That Got Lucky' (BBC Radio 4), which won a Sony Radio Academy Award in 2006. Chris has also appeared on 'Friday Night with Jonathan Ross' and regularly on 'Mock the Week'. He has also appeared frequently as a panelist and as the host of 'Have I Got News For You'. In 2010 Chris began hosting 7 Day Sunday on BBC Radio 5 live with fellow comedians Andy Zaltzman and Sarah Millican. Chris was also a regular cast member on E4’s cult hit 'Skins'.
