Meet Chris Clarkson

Chris was raised in Leicester and apart from a 6 year stint in Yorkshire he has found himself based in Manchester for most of his professional life (although now splits his time between the north west and beautiful Suffolk).


He trained as an actor at Bretton Hall. Since graduating in 2002 he has worked extensively in theatre (drama, Shakespeare, musicals, pantomimes, kids shows), television (soaps, dramas, commercials) and also as a voice over with his own state-of-the-art home studio.


As a presenter he hosts live events (conferences, fashion shows, galas, trade shows, awards nights), creates recorded media (e-learning, training, product launches, commercials, virals) and also had a stint on live TV as a regular guest host on The One Show (BBC).


Due to his performance background he has always been very versatile and isn’t thrown when new ideas or concepts are put to him last minute. Indeed, he once delivered a 2-day Presenter Training course for a new client in Brussels with just 24 hours notice! Clearly this style of working works well for him, though, as the vast majority of his work comes from repeat bookings.


He’s been fortunate to host events all over England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland plus further afield in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy and Malta.


What a host again! So pleased with how he compered throughout our conference - a real professional. I was really impressed with how he came up with his own content on the spot which really added comedy with core information.
Jeff Stagg
We employed Chris as presenter/host of our management conference. From the start we found him to be professional, well prepared and personable. On stage he was engaging, kept to a tight schedule and his natural charisma ensured he connected with the audience immediately. All in all a great host.
Martyn Coffey
CEO Marshalls PLC
A huge thank you for your significant contribution to our annual awards. Your professionalism, humour, attention to detail and engagement with the audience were spot on and made this a night to remember. The feedback has been tremendous and you played a critical part in creating a lovely vibe, filled with interaction and fun. A very appropriate night to recognise and celebrate the success of the HEA community.

I have worked with Chris on multiple projects throughout the past few years and he delivers every.single.time. He is a joy to work with as a director because quite frankly, he just gets it. Fantastic voice, and even better guy.
Jake Barrett
Director - Barrett Film Company
Chris is an excellent compère - dynamic, amusing, personable! His professional vocal qualities allow him to engage well with the public. We have great confidence in him as he is always punctual and his smile wins many hearts!

"The tone for a fantastic night of fund-raising for Harrogate Theatre’s ongoing renovation work was set by the faultless delivery of charming and ultra-slick MC Chris Clarkson, who also happens to be the dame in the theatre’s most recent, highly successful pantomime. Thanks to witty interchange between Clarkson and Stedman, the evening began with a swing which never stopped. Both were giving their time for free, a sure sign of the affection and loyalty Harrogate Theatre currently inspires."

Chris Clarkson has worked with us on many projects both as a presenter and voice over. We love working with him and enjoy the repartee, fresh approach and ideas he brings to projects. Looking forward to the next project.

Chris did a brilliant job. He did more than just hold the show together, he brought it alive!
Anna Chrystal
Marketing Manager - Golden Square
I have worked with Chris on a number of occasions when raising funds for the Prince's Trust and he has been a superb presenter of our Rock shows, always demonstrating a real empathy with the ideals of the Trust. His presenting skills, show planning & delivery have been excellent. What's more he can really sing!
Steve Lindsay
The Prince's Trust
Chris was a delight to work with – very professional, great with the client and really cared about delivering a successful event… which we did! Will definitely use him again in the future!
Sarah Moore
TMB Events
Having worked with Chris now on 4 events – each one very different, and with sketchy information at best handed to Chris to work with, he always manages to keep the audience informed and draws them in with his natural charm and enthusiasm. Chris is always happy to “muck in” and usually ends up wearing one of our staff T-shirts showing he is part of the team. A real professional and works well with both children and adults alike. I look forward to working with Chris again in the future.

Chris Clarkson is a first class presenter and compère. I have engaged him many times to compère and host events for Salford Red Devils. These events have included our prestigious Player of the Year Awards Evenings which are always glittering occasions. Chris has hosted our match day hospitality suites, looking after our valued sponsors and VIP guests. His style of easy going yet knowledgeable about the game certainly adds to all occasions. Chris is a professional you can depend on. I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris to host/compère any special event.
Andrew Bentham
Commercial Manager - Salford Red Devils
Chris is a professional. From preparation to delivery you are in a safe pair of hands. Chris is an engaging, likeable and quick-witted host.
Matt Windsor
Director - Think Magic
Chris Clarkson is quite simply, a dream to have working for you. He brings with him a wealth of experience, a charming personality, good looks and a great sense of humour; these qualities combined make him the ideal host for all events. His recent bookings with us have included 5 sell-out theatre shows and Wembley Stadium and we hope he will be working with us in our exciting year ahead with Rock Choir.
Pippa Gearing
Rock Choir
We have been using Chris as our main presenter for over 12 years now. He’s talented, a nice guy and always arrives organised and pre-prepared. We use him for our large stage shows, fashion shows, galas and shopping centre promotions and we’ve even used him to train up some new presenter talent. His stage charisma makes him ideal to connect with the audience and ensures our shows always run to time. He can adlib on stage brilliantly and has the ability to build audience excitement and anticipation.
