Comedians in Melbourne

Chris Franklin

Chris is an Aussie bloke, a yobbo or a bogan – from his flannelette shirt to his double plugger thongs. His “Hoganesque” style of comedy appeals to every average Australian. Chris is one of Australia’s best feature comedians whose comedy touches on the delicate issues of beer, sport and relationships.

Chris has now been performing comedy since October ’97, and has risen to feature status in that small amount of time. His accomplishments include:

  • PBS Radio Golden Stom Award for Best Up & Coming Comedian
  • National Triple J Raw Comedy winner for Best New Comedian
  • Grand Finalist National Green Faces competition in Canberra
  • Third prize – The Comedy Hotel Sydney’s ‘Night of Nights’
  • Double Platinum sales for his hit single “Bloke”
  • Aria Nomination “best comedy release” for Bloke
  • Aria Nomination for ‘Highest selling single”
  • Aria Nomination “best comedy release” for Mullet Head
