some things I've done
"The evening ended on a hilarious note with its guest speaker, Chris White. The astonishing poet transitioned between sadness and hilarity in each poem. One moment appearing a shy speaker who found himself in the wrong place, the next a powerful commentator demanding the focus of the room. White continued to stand out as his own unique performer. Think of the self-deprecation of David Mitchell and the open expressiveness of Russell Howard, and you’re halfway there." - Intermission Bristol
"Chris is a funny guy, but underneath there is a bubbling cauldron of ideas that sometimes rise quite unexpectedly to the surface. At times he can floor you with the keenly observed aptness of such unexpected insights. If furtive looks and raised eyebrows were bubble gum, you would be all out of pennies watching him perform, in an act in which he often seems quite surprised by how much both he and the audience are enjoying themselves." - GreenBeanz Photography
his unique brand of comedy-poetry, balancing banter with beauty and a refreshing perspective on universal experiences, impressed the judges within seconds and had the audience in fits. - RazzMag
