Chris Leasmith

Chris is a proud father of two fantastic children, one being autistic. A self professed avid gamer – who endeavours to keep the real value of how much he spends on this pastime a secret from his wife (editors note: Chris – divorce is much more expensive). Chris gets a kick out of starting fights between the other three Grumpy Gits and strives to ‘put the cat amongst the pigeons’ in each show. Not only is he grumpy but is miserable at the best of times – once called by Adam Pearson ‘A right mard’y bastard‘.

Do you ever find disability shows to be a bit heavy and draining? It's enough to make you very grumpy, We at the Grumpy Gits agree! That's why we created The Grumpy Gits Show, a regular disability related discussion show with emphasis on entertainment and humour. Our four hosts; Adam Pearson (TV, Hollywood film star), Martin Dougan (BBC Newsround), Duncan Casburn (PDA DAD UK), Chris Leasmith (3 Guys & a Console) join forces to discuss current events, disability related issues, interview prominent guests, and generally argue and make fun of each other. As proud partners with Disability Expo, we are excited to be performing two live shows at the event. On day one we will be presenting a live Grumpy Gits show including all of your regular favourite segments; these will include our usual banter, our patented See You Next Tuesday, and discussion on current areas of interest with special guests - all with our usual tongue-in-cheek style. On day two we will be presenting a special game show; in the style of your favourite comedy panel shows. So come and join The Grumpy Gits for some laughter packed and poignant discussion, banter, and fun. Nobody takes disability seriously so why should we? #DontBeGrumpyAlone.
