”Cool and funky act”
– Simon Cowell
”A real throwback to music hall eccentricity, Chris Cross is inventive, baffling and original. He really should be put in a strait-jacket – trouble is he can wriggle out of one just as quick as Houdini.”
– Derek Smith, The Stage Magazine
“Amazing… The cheeky Geordie certainly enjoys himself at the audiences expense, and there is absolutely no malice in him…”
– 4 Star Rating from Edinburgh Festivals Famous ‘ 3Weeks’ Reviewers
“He spent quite a long time warming up the audience, his jokes were filthy and his ego was as big as his hair, which the audience loved. This guy was unique and spunky and he worked well with the audience..”
– Carnival Divine Burlesque Review
“We spotted Chris Cross and his own special brand of contortion on MySpace; it freaked us out enough that we decided to promote him all over the site. We wish him the best of luck wierding out crowds across the nation.”
– Myspace UK
“A truly individual act.”
– The Argus Magazine
“We thought he was great! The shoulder dislocation trick is gross but it amused the crowd!! He pulled strong audiences for both shows and was very good with the punters. Lots of autographs and chats with people in the street afterwards. It was a great success and Chris talked very highly of you!”
