Geordie comic Chris Ramsey brings stand-up show to Barking stage

“I’m actually just an idiot,” Chris Ramsey laughs down the phone.
Of course the comedian’s talking about the now infamous moment when he was ejected from the Soccer AM’s studio for using obscene language – twice.
It’s the story that forms both the narrative and the title of his latest tour, The Most Dangerous Man on Saturday Morning Television, which he’ll perform at Barking’s The Broadway theatre on Saturday night.
“It sounds really bad and like I’m really edgy,” Chris says. “But come and see the show and hear the story and you’ll see that I’m actually just an idiot.
“In a way I’m quite glad I did it because I got a tour out of it.”
The 28-year-old Geordie admits putting his foot in it is a common occurrence although, as you would expect, he can see the funny side of it.
“If you put me in a room with someone who doesn’t talk much, I would talk myself in circles until I dug myself into a massive hole,” he confesses.
Chris is the star of BBC comedy drama Hebburn but insists stand-up is where his heart lies.
“I haven’t found anything in the TV world that really compares,” Chris explains.
“Maybe if I was a one-liner merchant I would be sick of my life by now but I can mix it up and it’s a story I enjoy telling.
“It’s like having a really good conversation with your mates but they don’t get to say anything.”
Chris is at The Broadway from 8pm.
Tickets start at £14.50. Visit thebroadwaybarking.com or call 020 8507 5607.
