PERRIER AWARD WINNING COMEDIAN AT LOL COMEDY CLUB AT FIRST DIRECT ARENA

Christian Reilly is one of the country's top headline comedians and he's garnered a reputation for barnstorming performances which leaves audiences on a laugh packed high. As former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian's career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain. Now a solo stand-up performer and playing all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He recently wrote and performed for 'That Was Then This Is Now' (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2's 'Jammin'. Other notable highlights he's enjoyed that many a top comedian would be jealous of include:  Appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on NBC's 'Late Night with Conan O' Brien' (one of the biggest TV shows in the USA). He's also had his own BBC radio show with the hugely-talented and multi-award winning TV comedian Richard Herring: 'That Was Then, This Is Now' and they're both widely regarded as an exciting and reliable pair of comedic hands to get any crowd rolling around with laughter. "His stand up is witty and heaving with punchlines..." Chortle "If you're a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you're a Christian Reilly fan already" The Guardian “Bill Bailey watch out, there’s a new kid on the block!” ONE4REVIEW.COM
