Rapidly rising comedy star Chris McCausland hit the road this spring with his stand-up show Speaky Blinder – a show about life and family, with loads of other nonsense thrown in for good measure.
Does life ever become overwhelming? Do you bemoan the stresses and strains of parenthood, a busy career, the rat race or everyday existence? Well, imagine having all that but being blind too. Chris McCausland is that man.
But luckily for Chris, and for the fans who attend his shows, he has also been gifted with a superb sense of humour and an unbeatable wit. This allows him not only to see the funny side in the life he leads, with all its difficulties, but also allows him to express this comedy on the stage. This stand-up show is a must-see!

He has appeared on Live at the Apollo three times, and his third, latest appearance was hosting the renowned stand-up show.
In 2021, Chris made his debut appearance on none other than the Royal Variety Performance, which aired in December and in which he, naturally, had the esteemed guests rolling in the aisles.
He has also made appearances on celebrity editions of favourites such as Mastermind, The Chase, Antiques Road Trip and Blankety Blank.
Originally from Liverpool, Chris has spent almost two decades travelling the country performing stand-up comedy, and has long been firmly established at the very top of the UK’s live comedy circuit. This is his first national tour, with in excess of one hundred dates!
Chris is blind due to a degenerative eye disorder called Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), which caused him to lose his sight gradually throughout the first 20 or so years of his life.
McCausland is finally getting the breaks he deserves. He has recently been told that his Radio 4 game show pilot, You Heard It Here First, is going to be made into a series and he is due to appear on QI again at Christmas. He is also set to be one of the managers on the rebooted version of Fantasy Football League hosted by Matt Lucas and Elis James, which airs on Sky Max from September 29.
