About Christopher Green

“Part politician, part shaman, part sociologist, part healer, but you’ll happily only focus on the fact that he’s an entertainer”  The Guardian

Christopher Green is an multi-award winning performer and writer who has appeared all over the world, works for the biggest cultural institutions in the UK, and has nice hair.

I am an entertainer. I do this through writing and performing. I do lots of very varied projects because I’m lucky enough to be able to follow my interests and make work about them. It seems that I’m interested in lots of things.

All of my work involves encouraging the audience to get involved – directly in the case of my experiential work or as Ida Barr leading the Hokey Cokey – but indirectly I always encourage some kind of response from simply leaning in to take more notice, to getting up and taking some action.  Everything comes down to entertainment. It’s my way of doing things. There are lots of others and I like a lot of them, but for me, I need to give you a few gags, some songs, some wry observations and some showbiz skills to justify taking up your time.

I am very proud of my experiential theatre work from Office Party, through VIP, The Razzle to This Show Has No Name. I get commissioned to make installation performances such as The Party Rules at the British Library and a forthcoming show about porn. Obviously.  I am looking forward to a lot more of these shows.

I feel very lucky to do what I do. I hope you have enjoyed some of it. Presumably that’s why you’re here.  On the site are some of my characters and projects, and a gig list. I look forward to seeing you at a show soon. Do feel free to get in touch and follow me on social networks.  I Tweet and I FB, but I warn you, just occasionally my posts can be slightly trivial.

A little about me: I am a father, a son, a grandson, and a proud family member. I am a boyfriend, a widower, and a friend. I am a Buddhist, a recovering depressive, and a very keen baker. I am not really interested in any other labels than these. Use them if you like, but don’t tell me.

Christopher Green is a genius

 

An entertainment maverick.

Christopher Green's Tina C is one of the great comic creations of the age. A genuinely fine country singer, but with a twist of satire and insight which is rare and to be highly prized

 

The most intelligent man to come out of the UK since Stephen Fry.

Working on a script by Christopher Green is as good as it gets. His writing is funny, insightful and has a delicacy that puts it in a class of its own. His work is rather like the man himself, very funny and really rather beautiful.

 

Tina C is one of my favourite performers. She is witty, often outrageous and always in tune! I can't wait to see what Chris Green comes up with next

 

Christopher Green is a rather remarkable performer and writer. I have known his work for nearly ten years. Not only is he a fine actor but can translate his ability to create very sharp and detailed characters into award winning stage and broadcast work. I have no doubt he could do the same for a book commission. For BBC Radio 4 he has had single plays commissioned for the prestigious Afternoon Play slot (weekly audience nearly 6 million). Contemporary and moving as well as sometimes funny he has also had several commissions for comedy series on the network. These have featured his enduring and endearing characters Tina C, and now Ida Barr. His Tina C programme on the eve of the American Presidential elections received very good previews and reviews and was a clever twist on the usual news and current affairs offerings at the time. Chris is able to move apparently effortlessly between media and his public event - a satire on the nature of celebrity and fame - at last year's Latitude Festival was extremely clever and very well orchestrated. While it would be unfair to say that all other comedy and satirical performers are sometimes careless in their presentation, one of the things I have always admired about his work is his attention to detail and the diligence in preparing for work on radio. The finished programmes, however, soar joyously and apparently effortlessly.

 

I have followed Christopher Green's work as performer, writer of radio drama and deviser of public events for some years now, and never fail to be inspired by its quality. He deploys sharp intelligence and humour with a tight attention to detail, and an unusually broad cultural frame of reference which gives an edge to even the more apparently frivolous of his entertainments. His originality has always been fearless, even startling, but is increasingly warmed by a mature humanity. You can never be quite certain in which direction this artist will develop next, but there is always a pleasant shock involved for the onlooker.

 

I really enjoy watching Christopher Green. He is a huge talent--clever, funny and devastatingly relevant

 

Christopher Green's work is funny and intelligent
