How Old is Chris Morris Please?
« on: November 27, 2018, 04:28:34 PM »
I want to know if he's actually the same age as me, as alleged by wikipedia - DOB 15 June 1962; or three years younger, as per IMDB - DOB September 5, 1965.

I'm thinking the latter is correct, which would be a bit annoying.

How old is Chris Morris please?

If the latter date is true, he shares a birthday with me! (But I'm 15 years later).

Not sure it's '65 though. I know it's not much help, but isn't there's a picture of him in Disgusting Bliss taken on Dec 9th 1980 (the day after John Lennon was shot folks) captioned that he's in sixth form or maybe college? Maybe someone who actually owns in and hasn't just flicked through it in shops a few times can confirm. He looks a lot closer to 18 than 15 in the image anyway.*

*I'm aware this sentence taken out of context sounds like something dodgy said by a wrong un in the Brass Eye Special or something.

I'm pretty sure his birthdate is given in Lucien Randall's Disgusting Bliss biography. I think '62 is correct, but maybe someone who has a copy to hand can confirm.

Disgusting Bliss has it the same as Wikipedia.

Well it pleases me greatly to think that Morris is only a month older than me, and was going through all the various social and cultural developments of the late C20th at the same age.

So do you remember Aberfan, I could ask, and he could nod sadly and we could bow our heads together in remembrance. And what about Christopher Trace? Oh fuck off, you don't mark out your life in terms of who was on TV do you? he would say, and he'd be right too.

I recall an article from '92 or so saying he was 29 then another in '96 saying he was 34. Which would indeed put in around the 55/56 mark this days.

A month younger, not older, for Christ's sake, get it right. Morris was only five months old when he was almost eviscerated by a nuclear bomb courtesy of JFK, while I was all of six months and had probably started to sit up alone in my cot. I could probably have rolled from my back to my stomach and vice versa too apparently.

Not sure that the difference in maturity would be quite so evident now though.
