M/C: CHRIS WILLIAMS
Taking advantage of the fact that Americans always find anything said with a British accent instantly funnier, the theme of Chris Williams’ performances has long been: “Love Your Accent.” The phrase has been heard ever since the Brit in exile first moved to NYC in 2012 when he started writing and performing comedy. The comedian has been described as an unofficial British ambassador, rebuilding the British-American relationship one gig at a time. He performed across all of New York City including Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club and New York Comedy Club. He was much in-demand host with a loyal following at live shows as well as on social media. The culmination of his time he was captured at in July 2015 when he recorded "Love Your Accent" to a packed room at the legendary Otto's Shrunken Head.
