Meet Chris Stokes – Ed Fringe 2015


I am a 9 stone divorced vegan comedian in his early 30s. All about the laughs. And carrots.

What is the first thing people notice about you?

Gloriously big teeth. Or pointy ears. Depends on how I’m wearing my hair.

6 things you can’t live without during the Fringe?

Baked Potato Shop, swimming, Jordan Valley, Royal Mile chippy, a misguided youth production of A Clockwork Orange and thinking out loud for an hour each night.

Your Edinburgh Fringe crushes this year?

Gein’s Family Giftshop. Dear, dear friends who are so lovely that I am not one iota jealous of their success. And Milo McCabe and Michael J Dolan.

Your darkest Fringe secret?

I was sat at a table next to David Baddiel and Ben Elton quivering with so much excitement that I couldn’t wait for Ben Elton to leave so I could say hello.

Chris Stokes new stand up show ‘Altruism In Birds’ will be at the Pleasance Courtyard from 5th – 30th August for tickets go to
