Born in London, Chris has never really felt the urge to live anywhere else. After joining the BBC in his twenties, he worked for several years as a radio comedy producer. Since then, he has been a comedian, on and off the radio; a newspaper and magazine columnist; and a writer and voice actor for children’s animations.
A third series of Chris' acclaimed autobiographical comedy Woof - True Tales Of Romance And Failure will be broadcast on Radio 4 in 2020. The Times described it as, "Blissfully well written. Neill may be first and foremost a comedian, but his observations are as acute as any novelist’s. Sweet, sharp and very funny.” Whereas The Observer said, "Like a rapid-fire English David Sedaris ... Every word is perfectly chosen and perfectly used; actually, he has something of Alan Bennett, too. Uplifting stuff."
Audio rights to his new non-fiction book, What Is This Thing Called, Love?, were acquired by WF Howes. It is now available for download and on CD. He is currently writing his first novel.
