"McCausland proves that funny is funny whether you can see it or not" The Guardian

Chris McCauslandHeld in high esteem by the national media, award-winning comedian Chris McCausland performs both nationally at most of the country’s major comedy clubs, and internationally as far afield as Europe and Asia.

Chris is the only professional comedian in the UK and probably even the world who is blind. This only serves to make his particular brand of observational comedy all the more unique as he chooses to talk about his disability only moderately; instead, priding himself on the variety and originality of his material.

"He has a wit so dry he’d make Death Valley look positively verdant. He delivers his punchlines with all the precision of a Stealth Bomber... McCausland is the genuine article, a comedian with a true talent!" The Edinburgh Guide

"While he distracts you with some really good off-the-cuff-stuff, you do not even notice that he has you in his palm for the unexpected whirlwind of his exhilarating wrap up routine. Pure joy" The Stage
