So how did the comedian come to make his millions?

After hosting an open-mic night in Newcastle, Chris took his talent to Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he took his first solo show, Aggrophobic.

The following year his 2011 show, Offermation, was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award.

Offermation went on to be recorded for BBC Radio 4 and was broadcasting march 2012.

After his gigs at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Chris made his way to the small screen, starring as Jack Pearson in Jason Cool’s BBC Two sitcom Hebburn.

But Chris’ stage career was yet to be over, as in 2014 he performed on Live at the Apollo for the first time.

The comedian’s TV appearances became more and more frequent, for in 2015 he took part in the Channel 4 series Time Crashers, and in 2016 co-presented I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp on ITV2.

Later that year he replaced Kevin McHale as the presenter of Virtually Famous, before finally presenting his own series The Chris Ramsey Show for Comedy Central, which began in January 2017.

Chris’ latest commitment has been hosting Stand Up Central.

In May 2017 he took over the show from Russell Howard after he was unable to return due to tour commitments.

Anyone who makes it to the quarterfinals reportedly gets £60,000.
