Radio career

On graduating, Morris took up a traineeship with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, where he took advantage of access to editing and recording equipment to create elaborate spoofs and parodies. On leaving Radio Cambridgeshire he worked at BBC Radio Bristol and Greater London Radio (GLR). He was fired by Radio Bristol, with accounts claiming that he had either been excessively abusive to a caller or had talked and possibly eaten over a news broadcast. However, the incident in which he supposedly released helium into a news studio was part of a prepared sketch and did not lead to his suspension or dismissal. Also, despite rumours, he was never fired or suspended from GLR and continued to broadcast with the station sporadically until his television career took off.

In 1991 Morris largely gave up work as a mainstream disc jockey and devoted himself to comedy with his radio project On the Hour. Working with Armando Iannucci, Patrick Marber, Richard Herring, Stewart Lee, Steve Coogan and others, he created a spoof news show on BBC Radio 4. In 1994 Morris began a weekly evening show on BBC Radio 1 alongside Peter Baynham. In the shows Morris perfected the spoof interview which would became a central component of his Brass Eye programme. The show's pranks left BBC bosses nonplussed, and a profanity-laden mid-afternoon show on Boxing Day would be his last. On The Hour double cassette cover featuring Chris Morris, 1992. ...

Move into television

The "sick comedy" which had bubbled under in On the Hour and The Day Today found full release, however, with Brass Eye, another spoof current affairs television documentary, shown on Channel 4. Brass Eye became known for tricking celebrities and politicians into throwing support behind public awareness campaigns for made-up issues that were often absurd or surreal (such as a drug called 'cake' and an elephant with its trunk stuck up its anus). In 2001 a reprise of Brass Eye on the moral panic that surrounds paedophilia led to a record-breaking number of complaints; it still remains the third highest on UK television after Celebrity Big Brother 2007 and Jerry Springer: The Opera, as well as heated discussion in the press. Many complainants, some of whom later admitted to not having seen the programme (notably Beverley Hughes, a government minister), felt the satire was directed at the victims of paedophilia, which Morris denies. Channel 4 defended the show, insisting the target was the media and its hysterical treatment of paedophilia, and not victims of crime.

Morris also developed and produced Jam, a television reworking of his radio show Blue Jam. Darker and more unsettling than his previous work, the show explored such taboos as infant mortality, incest, anal sex, rape, suicide and sadomasochism through a series of unsettling, dreamlike sketches with a soundtrack of ambient music. This was followed by a 'remix' version, Jaaaaam.

Controversy

Morris has covered other controversial subjects. He once falsely suggested on the radio that Jimmy Savile and Conservative MP Michael Heseltine had died; had a show faded mid-broadcast when he played an iconoclastic cut-up of the Archbishop of Canterbury's funeral oration for Diana, Princess of Wales, although Radio 1 had previously cleared this for broadcast, claiming an error on their part as they mistook it for another censored sketch on a similar theme; and performed a song in the style of Pulp lead singer Jarvis Cocker about child-murderer Myra Hindley with the lyrics: "Every time I see your picture, Myra/I have to phone my latest girlfriend up and fire her/And find a prostitute who looks like you and hire her/Oh, me oh Myra."

In 1994 Morris portrayed a fictional rapper, Fur-Q (Fuck you), for a sketch satirising hiphop's glamorisation of guns and violence promoting his song "Uzi Lover" (a parody of Phillip Bailey's song "Easy Lover") featuring lyrics such as "Uzi like a metal dick in my hand, magazine like a big testicle gland, bitch wanna try it, I said keep it quiet.. shove it up your motherfuckin ass and fry it" and "Cop! Bitch! Cop bitch motherfucker!". He would visit similar territory in Brass Eye, with JLB-8 (Jailbait), an Eminem clone (though in appearance and attire he more closely resembled Fred Durst) who openly worked paedophile themes into his music and had a huge following of preteen girls. Phillip Bailey (born 1952) is an American funk and soul singer and most notable for being a vocalist for the Phoenix Horns and later one of the key members and one of the main lead singers of legendary funk group, Earth, Wind & Fire, which he joined in 1973 and remains...

In 1999 a regular feature appeared in the Observer newspaper documenting the impending suicide of columnist Richard Geefe entitled Second Class Male/Time To Go. After protest, it was revealed that the column was a spoof written by Morris. In 2002 Morris ventured into film, directing the short My Wrongs 8245 - 8249 and 117, adapted from a Blue Jam monologue about a man led astray by a sinister talking dog. It was the first film project of Warp Films, a branch of Warp Records. In 2003 this won the BAFTA for best short film. In 2005 Morris worked on a sitcom entitled Nathan Barley, based on the character created by Charlie Brooker for his website TVGoHome.
