Chris Franklin

Chris is an Aussie bloke - a yobbo or a bogan - from his flannie shirt to his double plugger thongs. His 'Paul Hoganesque' style of comedy appeals to your average Australian.

Chris has been performing comedy since October 1997, winning numerous comedy awards and appearing on national television several times, he is one of Australia's fastest rising comedy stars whose material touches on the delicate areas of beer, sport and relationships.

Chris' first CD single was released on January 31, 2000 through EMI Music Australia entitled 'Bloke'. It is a hilarious send up of Meredith Brooks' song 'Bitch'. The song landed at Number 15 first week in and subsequently went number one achieving platinum sales exceeding 120 000. It was the third highest selling single of that year.

Chris has released a further single which was nominated in the 2001 Aria Awards for "Best Comedy Release" entitled "Mullet Head" a parody of the hit single "Gimme Head" by The Radiators, who perform live on the single.
During 2001 Chris toured extensively with Steady Eddy in their hit live show "Guess Who's Pissed". And also tours regularly with The Radiators across Australia.
