  • Crissy Rock is without doubt one of the UK’s true comedic genius talents. Crissy has a unique ability to reduce her audiences to tears of laughter with her hilarious one woman stand-up shows and in her role as Janey York in Benidorm from series 1 to 4 and tears of emotion with her film roles (including her extraordinary award-winning performance in director Ken Loach’s masterpiece “Ladybird Ladybird”).

    With her exploits on ITV’s “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” in 2012, Crissy made a name for herself and gained national recognition. The release of her best-selling autobiography “The Heart Within Me Burns” became something of a sensation in 2011, sitting in the top ten of the Sunday Times bestseller list for 7 months, released as a paperback having hit 35,000 sales. A run of TV appearances (including 3 show-stopping features on This Morning) fuelled a surge of interest in Crissy and her incredible life to date.

    A hiatus in her acting career came when she decided to relocate to Spain specifically to film the Tiger Aspect/ITV comedy “Benidorm” alongside Johnny Vegas, Tim Healey, Steve Pemberton and Sheila Reid. Crissy’s role as Janey York ran for four hit series and upon leaving the show in 2011, Crissy decided to stay in Benidorm after establishing herself as the Island’s top female stand-up comedienne, playing 10 shows a week to packed houses.

    Other appearances include the role of the Wicked Queen in Snow White at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre as well as a lead role in the comedy show Dirty Dusting at Bedworth Civic Hall. She has also appeared on various TV chat and game shows such as Come Dine With Me, Loose Women, The Chase and a 7th series of Benidorm as well as being a regular panellist on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.

    Her live show saw the Liverpool Comedian take over The Bentley event venue for a night of “Shocking Bingo” in 2017 and following that she went straight into rehearsals for the Fairy Godmother in Runcorn’s Pantomime, Sleeping Beauty.

    In 2019 Crissy was announced as part of the cast for ITV1’s The Full Monty Who Bares Wins from which she received universal acclaim. That same year she joined 5Star’s hit show Celebs On The Farm, coming 5th place on the series. Crissy appeared in BBC 1’s Celebrity Masterchef during the summer of 2020 and returned for their Christmas special later that year. It was also announced that she would go on her first UK comedy tour in 2021. In 2021 Crissy joined the official cast of Menopause 2 The Musical that toured across the UK.

    Crissy recently filmed Discovery Plus’s show The Great Yorkshire auction that aired in October 2023 and then took part in another high profile pantomime. In 2024 she began touring across the UK performing in high end comedy clubs as well as joining the cast of Dirty Dusting, produced by Leah Bell productions.
