Award winning actor /top comedian CHRIS McGLADE Redcar comedian Chris McGlade has spent thirty years working everywhere from the unforgiving working mens clubs in the North of England, all the way to the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood comedy store, to London's west end where he had the main role of 'George' the boxing coach in ''Billy Elliot the musical'' and into Ken Loaches Bafta/Palm D'or winning film "I Daniel Blake". His 2017 Edinburgh show 'Infant Hercules' was critically acclaimed and his London show "The Comedy Happening" was included in Chortles top ten most memorable gigs of 2017 ahead of Ricky Gervais, and a whole raft of tv comedians who failed to make the top ten. Chris forged his working class, now politically based comedy after fighting a political campaign in his home town of Redcar against the local authority there and the countries biggest house builder Persimmon Homes. He beat them in 2010 in the House of Lords and changed the law in England regarding open spaces. He also stood as an independent candidate for Redcar in the 2005 general election, as part of his political campaign and came fourth with 2379 votes, the seventh highest fourth place in the country in that general election. Now, this Teesside born North preacher comic is gearing up to return to the Fringe. His brand new, no holds barred show, ''Northern Monkey''. looks at how the South of England is prejudiced towards the rest of the country as McGlade hilariously rips the guts out of political correctness and the status quo.. 'A unique voice- a must for any comedy aficionado' Bruce Dessau London Evening standard ***** ‘weaponised comedy, locked and loaded. It is awesome’ Kate Copstick The Scotsman **** 'Come the next revolution, McGlade could be the next Alexei Sayle’ Steve Bennett editor of Chortle **** This is whole-hearted stuff that takes me back to the days when comedy was all loud with anger and flat with northern vowels. He wellies into his set with an infectious enthusiasm and an obvious love for the job. And this with an audience of four. I would like to see McGlade - an impressive, old-fashioned, pointy, shouty comic - with a great big audience to point and shout at. Kate Copstick, The Scotsman. ***
