This gangly and good natured funny man has quickly established himself as one of Scotland’s fastest rising young stars. Regularly playing all of Scotland’s top comedy venues, Chris has also been venturing south to play gigs in Newcastle, London and Manchester.
Chris has a conversational, laid back and playful style that gives him a likeable onstage persona and his acting background (coupled with his 6’2” stature) helps him to command the stage. He’s not afraid of making the most of his wiry frame with some great physical comedy.
Forbes was recently made his TV debut on the BBC’s hit Scottish sitcom Dear Green Place alongside stars Ford Kiernan and Paul Reilly. Chris was also a finalist in the Great Canadian Laugh Off 2008 where he performed at Yuk Yuk's comedy club in Toronto as part of a Canadian Comedy Network broadcast. 2008 also saw Chris Forbes make his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the Lucy Porter and Des Clarke Sketch Show.
