Award-winning comedian and storyteller Chris Stokes (BBC Three, BBC Radio 4, Dave) brings his latest solo show to Coventry Comedy Festival, taking in subjects from the shape of time and the theory of eternalism to childhood birthdays and calling your nan the worst word imaginable.

As a child of 8, Chris went to the dentist and something weird happened, something which would go on to alter all of our lives. As a child of 34, Chris attempts to explain this.

Juxtaposing hi- and lo-brow, Chris' latest solo show is his best yet.

Chris has appeared in and written for the BBC Three series 'Quickies', written for shows such as 'Have I Got News For You' and 'The News Quiz' as well as supported names such as Milton Jones, Jason Manford and Stewart Francis on tour.
