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

  • Come along! Summer party and book talk in London

    Make Architects and my publishers Batsford are hosting a party with free drinks and a book talk by yours truly where I run through the craziest and funniest projects from my Unbuilt book and sign some books after. It’s in London on Jul 27 and I’d love you to come. GET YOUR FILTHY PAWS ON SOME TICKETS BY CLICK CLICK CLICKING

  • little planets in the wires

    Thanks to everyone who came to mac in Birmingham and enjoyed a pint of foaming nut brown ale while I shot the breeze live on stage with Oxide Ghosts and Brass Eye director Michael Cumming after the Oxide Ghosts screening earlier this week. We talked Ted Maul, spherical cows and how Charlie Brooker met Chris Morris.

  • 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.
