Details of Career So Far to the Start of 2000

    The Man behind the Rimmer in Red Dwarf has earned him cult status. The series has run so far for eight seasons although Chris only appeared in a handful of series seven. I, like the rest of the Internet community was pleased to see him back at his best in Series Eight with a stronger yet weaker character. Hmmm, I think that makes sense.

    He plays the main character in the Brittas Empire as disaster-prone leisure centre manager, Gordon Brittas. the man with the Dream. This series is one of the BBC's most popular ever with some of the highest rating of any comedy over the last ten years. It's a shame they burnt the sets after the last filming.

    Recently he wore a perm and became Gary Prince, a ex footballer from Liverpool that doesn't really listen to anybody and really doesn't have a great deal of taste. After two series they've stopped making this program. I've no idea what the ratings were but they moved it to an afternoon slot.

    He was also the principal male voice on Spitting Image. He was the voice of many, including Sean Connery's James Bond, Ronald Reagan, Prince Charles, Robin Day, David Coleman, Sir John Gielgud, Paul Daniels, Barry Norman, John Cole, George Bush, Jack Nicholson and Kenneth Williams. He does not have a favourite impression any more. 

    His Kenneth Williams on the Smeg Ups tape is a classic.
