Chris McCausland

There are some amusing tales about life as McCausland rates his own on a scale of eventfulness from ‘Mr Blinky’ - a man paralysed in all but one eyelid - to Roy Sullivan, struck by lightning seven times. McCausland realises the Guinness World Records is an ‘anthology of the mentally ill’ and he’s better off with a relatively quiet stand-up’s existence.
