Chris Lynam (United Kingdom)

With an exquisite grasp of the grotesque, Chris Lynam has been feverishly subverting the traditions of the stand-up for more than forty years. His reputation for unpredictable comic mayhem has propelled him to the four corners of the globe, and viewers and audience attendees here and throughout the world have been aghast and agog at his televised antics and stage performances.


Chris Lynam has worked as an uncategorizable solo clown/comedian, which has earned him a reputation for unpredictable hilarity and mayhem. He has toured his solo show to US, Italy, Germany, France, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, Seychelles, Hong Kong, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Scandinavia, China, Colombia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.



The Beast of Theatre


Chris Lynam, the infamous iconoclastic clown, brings you his interactive, acrobatic, manically musical and gloriously epic show! With his raw physicality, an exquisite grasp of the grotesque and a seemingly endless supply of explosive tricks, he has been feverishly subverting the tradition of alternative comedy, shattering our cozy pre-conceptions with his extraordinary off the wall surrealism and spontaneous modern clown.

The script isn’t written till the end of the show, so don’t be afraid to caress the beast… it only wants to play!
