Craig Campbell is a formidable stand-up, one of the most charismatic and inventive performers around. He has made appearances on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Russell Howard’s Good News, Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled and Dave’s One Night Stand.
In 2010, Craig supported Frankie Boyle on his record-breaking national tour, playing to an audience of over 300,000 nationwide. Craig also re-joined Frankie on tour in Autumn 2012.
In Spring 2011 Craig toured nationally in his own right with Craig Campbell Live, extended twice due to popular demand, notching up over 120 dates nationwide and continuing into Spring 2012, including performances at London’s prestigious Bloomsbury Theatre. This is now available on DVD and on iTunes. In December 2013, he extended his successful tour, Thrilling Mic Hunt, which continued into Spring 2014 and returned to the Edinburgh Fringe.
Craig first appeared alongside Tony Law and Dan Antopolski as part of comedy trio The Dinks. Their debut Edinburgh show in 2003 was both a critical and box office success, leading to an invitation to perform in the Best Of Edinburgh programme in New York.
2008 saw Craig depart from his traditional stand-up, when he wrote and performed his own, innovative, one-man play, Mr Eyetwister, allowing Craig to stretch his acting muscles and demonstrate ‘his ability to construct a thrilling narrative, whilst keeping his cards held firmly to his chest until the very end’ (Edinburgh University Press)
Once the notorious host of Canada’s legendary Ed’s Night Party, Craig has appeared as a featured guest live with Jim Carrey and on Mountain Madness with Dennis Miller as well as starring on Just For Laughs and in an episode of his own CBC Comics, as a special note Craig was lucky enough to be introduced by John Candy at his first ever appearance at the Just For Laughs festival. Since relocating to the new home he loves in Devon UK, Craig has appeared as presenter of Sky One’s hit series From Wimps to Warriors, recorded Comedy Cuts (ITV2), Mitch Benn’s Musical Comedy Show (BBC Radio 4), Out To Lunch (BBC Radio 2), Comedy Shuffle (BBC Three), Comedy Blue and Edinburgh and Beyond, both for the Paramount Comedy Channel.
Craig appeared at the New Zealand Comedy Festival in April 2012.
