Josh Howie Stand-up live

Since 2009 Chris has been making people laugh, this time it was on purpose and clothed. A comedy club promoter himself and having supported the likes of; Andi Osho, Russell Kane, Adam Bloom, Shappi Khorsandi, Joel Dommett, Nick Helm, Tony Law, Sean Hughes, Stewart Francis and Omid Djalili. He’s one half of a successful radio show and one quarter of two sell out Edinburgh Fringe shows.  Currently performing at all the major comedy clubs across the UK, we are excited to have Chris back at Grinstock Comedy after so many years away.

If Chris could have one wish it would be to swim with the dolphins and if he could have two wishes it would be to go to Alton towers and not have to sit in a specially constructed chair designed to embarass larger people. And he'd also like a monkey. In fact he'd prefer the monkey to the dolphins, forget about the dolphins who mentioned them anyway?

What the press have to say:
"Great stuff!" - Stewart Francis
"Nice stuff there man" - Adam Bloom
"Were you also performing tonight?" -  Omid Djalili
Just so so funny" - Boardmasters
"As soon as Purchase takes to the stage you know you are in safe hands. His assured style and likeable persona make for a very engaging performer and his material is top drawer. Has was the stand out act of the night and well deserved winner"-  BTC Comedy

Windsor became a highly skilled and supremely professional comedy circuit compere almost overnight, with an extraordinary ability to warm up a show and keep it running at a high quality level. In addition, top quality material makes him a top-notch act.

A well-known face at Covent Garden and winner of 5 street performance awards, including Best Comedy Act, Windsor has developed into a hilarious compere, warm-up and comedian with a well-crafted and instinctive ability to involve and warm up any audience.
