Harry and Chris are a genre-bending pair whose rare mix of comedy, jazz and some slam poetry thrown in has been entertaining audiences around the country for over ten years.
After sell-out runs up at the fringe in 2016 and 2017, this year they bring their show ‘Harry and Chris Save the World’ to ARC in Stockton.
Although labelled comedy, the pair have been known to cover more serious topics, with comedic takes on serious issues such as climate change, the climate of fear and even racist media propaganda. It has often been said that in times of darkness, the best remedy is laughter and the pair use this to their advantage, successfully navigating the thin line between protest and parody.
Their songs range from panda repopulation to coming of age to Robot Wards, but what remains clear is that this pair has the ability to dazzle an audience, counting even Jonathan Ross as a huge fan.
Separately, Harry Baker published his debut anthology with Burning Eye in December 2014, whilst the show of the same name won ‘Best Spoken Word’ show in 2015.
His partner in jazz-rap-crime is Chris Read, who has performed at Montreux Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival and his debut solo album was released in 2016.
Similarly, they have also been featured on The Russell Howard Hour on Sky One.
Be sure to catch this duo and their witty wordplay at ARC, Stockton on Wednesday 10th October.
Tickets, priced at £15.00 in advance, are available from arconline.co.uk.
