Saw Chris Turner at a corporate event and he was so funny I booked tickets for yesterday. So pleased I did! Great interactive show - making rap approachable and funny! Would def recommend.

Best of the 7 Fringe shows I've seen so far! A mix of prepared material & impromptu stuff. It's comedy. It's rap. It's hilarious! The creative artistry of wordplay. Genius. Will definitely go again next year if he comes to the Fringe in 2023!

We found this rap god amazing and entertaining from start to finish. Chris makes audience participation enjoyable and was very quick witted. Really recommend this show. Well done. I’ve just subscribed to your YouTube channel.

A disappointment. Chris Turner was a bit unlikeable: weird stuff about a guy in a wheelchair that wasn't funny, weird interaction with the audience (mildly racist/rude), weird LinkedIn-type pictures of him and his wife. He came across as tired and entitled and the content really did not justify that approach.

You’re invited to contribute to the show while you’re waiting in the queue. These contributions, and an excellent performer, result in a highly entertaining and thoroughly fun show.
