Speaky Blinder: Comedian Chris McCausland Brings His Unique Perspective On Life & Relationships To Komedia Brighton

Stand-up comedian and actor Chris McCausland - He's blind. He's a dad. He's a husband. He's third in command - will be coming to Komedia Brighton, next year, with his new show Speaky Blinder.

"I've barely been more than a mile from my house since March 2020," says Chris. 

"So this national tour will now feel like the biggest adventure ever undertaken by a human being since Captain Scott set off to reach the South Pole. 

"I can't wait though, and I don't think my wife can wait for me to have a reason to leave the house either. 

"It's a stand-up show. I don't sing or dance, I talk into a microphone and we all have a good night - and my wife gets some much-needed respite."

In Speaky Blinder, Chris delivers big laughs and razor-sharp observations, including the tales of the marathon birth from hell that he and his wife thought would never end.

Their experience of having to pay actual money to an eccentric lactation consultant (yes that's a real job), and the central heating battles that arise when a pasty white Scouser is married to a hot-blooded Brazilian woman.


One of the circuit's most prolific stand-ups, Chris also gives an insight into life and parenthood in the dark, from his inevitable shortcomings as a husband who can't do his share of the driving to the total farce of playing hide and seek when you can't see where to hide or where to bloody seek!

A proper stand-up show with a real unique perspective on life and relationships, Speaky Blinder will definitely leave you thinking as well as laughing!
