Hello, I’m Christopher

I don’t know Billy Ocean / I don’t know the ocean floor /
I don’t own any albums / I don’t know anything / I don’t go to college anymore

  • Me on Arte TV

    Bonjour myyyy European chummmms. Zis is like Eurotrash without the boobs. Regardez your favourite author/aspiring comedic pamplemousse talking about ideas n stuffff from 3 minutes 30. It’s in Deutsch too, which is apt because we shot it in Berlin. VIELEN DANK


  • Arte

    Had a blast filming with Arte in Berlin last week. We made a little film together about me and some of my books and you can see it on their arts show Twist on Mar 6.


  • london calling

    Thanks to everyone who came to the sold out talk I did with Rob and the London Society, Melodie Leung and Elain Harwood on Feb 17. It was so great to chat to so many people after and to get a few laughs during my *set*. We are scheduling in more London events soon. Watch this space!
