Like Father, Like Son? Sorry.

Chris Gibbs has been unqualified for many jobs… he was an overweight acrobat, a private school English teacher whose only qualification was a British accent, and a Titanic Museum re-enactor fired after one day for ‘adding a few jokes’. Then he found himself in the most difficult, most important job of all… fatherhood.

A stand-up comedy show that playfully explores the fears, worries and surprises of being a new father, and the absolute terror of wanting to be a good one.

"very funny” NNNN

Chris Gibbs

British comedian Chris Gibbs has been described as “One of the funniest guys around” by the National Post. The Toronto Star has called his shows “darkly gleeful” and “comic stand-up gold”; and the CBC has described his delivery as “a combination of dry wit and barely controlled madness that threatens to go off the rails at any time.” He is best known for the critically acclaimed one-man comedy shows, ‘Like Father, Like Son? Sorry’; ‘A Legal Alien’; ‘Antoine Feval’ and ‘The Power of Ignorance’; which he performs all over Canada. He’s played at Just For Laughs in Montreal, appeared in two CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival Galas, was a regular cast member of the NBC comedy show ‘Howie Do It’, starred in the indie Canadian feature film, ‘Run Robot Run’ and is even a published author.
