Bio

Chris is the son of a trucker and the first in his family to graduate college. He’s got a blue collar attitude with an ivy league wit. Chris also represents the next generation of gay comedians. His audience knows he's gay and he uses it to full advantage without resorting to stereotypes or cliches. His humor is current, topical, and completely original. Said one audience member, "I hate stand-up comedy - but you, you made me laugh out loud!"

In June 2011, Chris won 1st place at the Snubfest Comedy Festival in Chicago. He has written jokes for Emmy Award-winning comedian Jane Lynch. The Advocate referred to him as "The Best of LGBT Comedy." He has performed for colleges all over the country and recently received a standing ovation from the students at Florida Tech. Chris has performed on the largest cruise ship in the world and he was selected as a feature comic at the Michigan Comedyfest, Charleston Comedy Festival, Baltimore Comedy Festival, Asheville Comedy Festival, Ventura Comedy Festival, Baltimore Artscape Festival, and headlined the Ganymede Arts Festival. He has performed on FOX and NPR. His jokes have appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and The Washington Post. He has appeared in The Washington Post Express, Miami Sun-Sentinel, Metro Weekly, Time Out New York, Next Magazine, New York Post, and the Village Voice. The blogs love him: he's been featured in afterelton.com, brightestyoungthings.com, thenewgay.net, and thegayplaces.com.
