A Legal Alien

From England, the Land of William Shakespeare, to Canada, the Land of William Shatner.

British comedian Chris Gibbs first visited Canada in 1995. Since then he's moved to Canada permanently, married a Canadian, and made a Canadian. He's met a Canadian who apologised for saving his life, been given more advice on bear avoidance than anyone could possibly need, and has spent more time than strictly necessary wondering what it really means to 'drop your accent.'

A stand-up comedy show about Canadians, by someone who isn't one.

"you find yourself helplessly laughing at horrific anecdotes, disturbing balloon tricks and odd observations"
Edmonton Journal

"In my humble opinion, Chris Gibbs is quite simply the most solid bang for your comedy buck going. This Brit-turned-Canuck packs as many big laughs per minute into his hour-and-a-quarter stand-up show as anyone."

"Deliberately tentative and twitchy, and darkly gleeful at times, his hand-wringing style and sotto voce asides are comic stand-up gold."
Toronto Star

"ridiculous and intelligent"
Edmonton Sun
