Blind comedy star coming to Lancaster

Comedy star Chris McCausland brings his ‘Speaky Blinder’ show to Lancaster early next year.

The comic’s new stage show comes to the Grand Theatre on January 20th, as part of his first ever national tour.

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. 

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.

Following his debut appearance on Live at the Apollo in 2018, Chris is in great demand and has become a regular face on our televisions, with multiple hit appearances across such flagship comedy programmes as Have I Got News for You, Would I Lie to You?, QI, The Last Leg and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

He has appeared on Live at the Apollo three times, and his third, latest appearance was hosting the renowned stand-up show.

Chris recently 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 recently made appearances on celebrity editions of favourites such as Mastermind, The Chase, Antiques Road Trip and Blankety Blank.
