"CHRIS BROOKS offers pathos with pith, poignancy with punch. He's at a place where idealism meets absurdity. He's out to lunch but back again for tea." - MATT HARVEY Radio 4 WONDERMENTALIST CABARET and SATURDAY LIVE.


"CHRIS BROOKS is a teacher who really knows his stuff. He makes learning easy, fun and original." - LUCY LEPCHANI, poet, writer and educator.


"Chris Brooks is amazing. He got me performing and I've never looked back. I thoroughly recommend his workshops!" - ROBERT GARNHAM, spoken word artist and multiple slam winner.
