Comedy-Rap-Jazz duo and Guardian Pick of the Fringe Harry & Chris blend award-winning wordplay, awe-inspiring musicality, eyebrow-raising bromance and unashamed joy to their audience. They write fast-paced and tongue-in-cheek lyrics rapped over soulful melodies with poignant messages behind them. Together the pair have generated a devoted following with their family friendly, feel-good songs which have been featured on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky), and heard on BBC Radio 2’s Live From the Edinburgh Fringe, BBC Radio 3’s The Verb, and BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sarah Brett Show. Harry and Chris received a Leicester Comedy Festival Award nomination in 2016, and have continued to performed to sold-out audiences across the UK. Internationally, the pair recently featured on NBC’s flagship comedy entertainment show Bring The Funny with Kenan Thompson, Chrissy Teigen, Amanda Seales and Jeff Foxworthy.
