After five years of sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, and award-winning tours to Australia and Europe; British improv sensation (and Oxford-educated white boy) Chris Turner makes his New York Debut with his most ambitious show yet: a one-man comedy and hip hop spectacular.
Jaw-dropping freestyles, hilarious stand-up, and dextrous raps combine for an hour of high-octane musical comedy that will have even the most avowed Kanye-haters nodding their heads to the beat.

“A virtuoso…a hip-hop machine” The Guardian
“Mind-bendingly flawless” ★★★★★ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
“Think rap isn’t your thing? Take a deep breath and think again. Let Chris Turner freestyle his way into your schedule” Orlando Sentinel
