Special Guest Chris Norton Walker

  On the phone today was our very own born and bred funny man; Chris Norton Walker.
Chris started off with humble beginnings and studied Drama at Demontfort University. Within those very walls were fellow Graham Norton and Catherine Tate  who studied the art of drama (Although not at the same time nor is he related to the afore mentioned Norton!) . It's also within those very walls where Chris conceived the idea to start a career as a live stand up comedian!

4 years and over 600 gigs later who are we to argue that he hasn't achieved this goal?

Chris came in specially to tell his he will be the opening the first of a monthly comedy open mic tomorrow (18/4/13) at the Peacock pub in St Albans. It kicks off at 8 and entry cost £3 and all money will goes to various different charities on different months. The address for the venue is: 13 Hatfield Road, Town Centre, St Albans AL1 3RR.

Tomorrows event will be raising money for a local theatre company called Breakaway Theatre, which aims to produce powerful and unusual acts around St Albans. For more information on the Breakaway Theatre Company go to their website:

We hope to have Chris back soon so we can hear how it all went and to hear more tales from behind the mic. For more information and to read his blog go to:
