"Am I Right?? March 23, 2010"

"I was just listening to the Simon King and Chris Gordon Am i Right?? episode and I almost fell over from laughing so much. Seriously that was the best thing I have ever heard." --Am I Right Listener and Fan. - CJSW Radio Show/Podcast 90.0FM Calgary

"You're Joking. July 3rd, 2008"

Chris Gordon, who will be representing Calgary at Just for Laughs this summer, both delights and frightens the audience with his manic, unconventional style.

Highlights: Gordon places a sign onstage with his cell number on it, so the audience can text him with comments, some of which he reads aloud halfway through his act. - Fast Forward Weekly, Tony Binns

"You say it best...when you say nothing at all. December 13 2007"

The "Wet and Wild" Chris Gordon was the last competitor in the mime joke contest last night. Chris did end up winning, I think because he had a bigger variety of mime jokes. To me, the best mime of his was the 80's stance and the eye injury. Chris also did some of his "a guy walks into a bar" jokes and they get me every time. Chris' stage presence, overall likability and inventive style of comedy make for a new and fresh show every time I see him. And he has fantastic hair...but that has nothing to do with his comedy. Or does it...? Rating: 10 smiley faces out of 10. - Kerry Rassmussen-MySpace Comedy Reviewer

"Did someone slip something into James' coffee last night? September 25 2007"

Chris Gordon & Don Wood came up together. Their first bit was about not being quite ready for TV - great! Then they had a "Cool-Off" whilst holding sparklers and ended off talking about Chris' alcoholic grandmother who was into Feng Shui- so good! They were relaxed, confident and put on a great show! Rating: 10 smiley faces out of 10. - Kerry Rassmussen- MySpace Comedy Reviewer

"Hump Day - Chump Day? No Way! December 06 2007"

Next up was Kristalbal Kristoff (gee, I hope I got the spelling right), a doppelganger for Chris Gordon. He came on to the stage, hung his coat on the Christmas tree and did his entire set in some sort of Eastern European accent. What made me laugh the most though was the use of electrical tape for eyebrows and a soul patch. Very inventive, a great set and lots of laughs! Rating: 9 smiley faces out of 10.

By the way, Chris won the foreign accent challenge - how could he not with all the little "extras" he put in to his set last night? - Kerry Rassmussen- MySpace Comedy Reviewer


Chris's comedy can be heard CBC Radio's "So, You Think You're Funny?" on XM Satellite Radio as well as Sirius Satellite Radio.

Emerging from his mother's womb making laser beam sounds (pew! pew!) it was apparent that laughter would follow Chris Gordon his entire life. Chris is a magical and majestical, rising star in the comedy galaxy; however I credit most of his success to his 1950Â’s bigboy space-hair.

Chris' Personal Saga: It wasn't always easy for Chris as he grew up in the mean white suburban streets of an upper-middle class neighborhood. Now a single mother, he is a part time teacher and also runs an after school comedy program for kids.

Chris has been compared by television producers to a young Harland Williams and by comedians as a beardless Zach Galifianakis. His brand and style of comedy has been described as, " slightly off to the left of center" or "very unusual (as usual) and very funny... it's what really sets him apart from the pack." He is seen as current, hip, inventive and always writing which gives him an improvisational feel and a strong connection with the crowd.

Two months after starting comedy, Chris was asked to perform at the Rocky Mountain Comedy Festival and became a festival regular. In his first year of comedy he hit the airwaves nationally as he was selected as the host's "#1 Pick in the Country" on CBC's "So You Think Your Funny?". This past summer Chris represented Calgary in the Homegrown Competition at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. You may also recognize him from appearing nation wide as "Rocket Man" in a new Coors Light commercial and was recently featured in the Toronto auditions of NBC's Last Comic Standing. In 2009 you can watch Chris on Global TV in his own show.

Chris has trained and performed at the prestigious Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in LA, at the Groundlings Theatre in LA, as well as the Improv Olympic in LA.

Chris Gordon is a crowd favourite and has audiences coming back week after week to see what new idea he has in store for them. He was a finalist in Yuk Yuk's $25,000 Great Canadian Laugh Off and is a regular winner of Yuk Yuk's Most Extreme Comedy Challenge as well as The Laugh Shop's Comedy Contests. Will he be wearing his pajamas? Will he have a shirt on? Will he sing you a love song? Will he grow a beard? The only way to find the answers to these questions and more is to come see him, live.

If Tony Danza would finally accept an invitation to one of Chris' shows, I'm sure he would approve and say, "Chris Gordon is one of the funniest characters since I played Anthony Morton 'Tony' Micelli on Who's the Boss...I'm Hilarious."
