About Chris Begg

Chris Begg started stand up comedy in 2011 in Brisbane, Australia.  Living on the Gold Coast, he realised that there was no open mic comedy nights there, so he started a fortnightly show at The Loft On Chevron Island.

After two years of running that he decided to focus on his own comedy, and bought his brand of rapid fire one-liners to the masses.

During his tenure as a stand up comedian he ran a show with Ting Lim at the 2014 Sydney Fringe Festival called Dualingo, was a regular headliner between Lismore and the Sunshine Coast, appeared several times on The Late Nite Show on Channel 31, and performed at charity gigs for the QLD Labor Party and Bond University.

In 2013, Chris wrote, performed and animated a TV pilot, “Work School”, with Dean Barker for Channel 31. It was not picked up.


2015 saw Chris perform his solo show Parent Sandwich at the Currumbin Tavern on the Gold Coast. This was initially meant to be released as a live stand-up comedy album, but due to technical difficulties only certain parts were recorded. This lead to the release of 10 Dollars (Live), which is available on all streaming platforms. An album of comedy sketches, Aged Like A Fine Melon, which were recorded a podcast called Sweaty Flock Fun Time was released in 2019.

Chris has since started focusing more on music, notably his Imo Draco project, but will release an acoustic album called Out of the Storm on the 5th of October, 2021.
