After my show, if you aren't singing the "I Like Books" song nor are you making laser beam sound effects you probably weren't actually at my show. I'm not scared to confront the government or old people. Sometimes I will reference Cuba Gooding Jr. ...and you will like it. www.hilariouscomedian.co

Biography

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."

Lyrics

Thank You for Being a Friend- Golden Girls Lyrics

Written By: Andrew Gold

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true your a pal and a confidant.

And if you through a party
Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend.

Princes of the Universe- Highlander Theme Song

Written By: Queen

VOICE-OVER #1
"I am Duncan MacLeod, born 400 years ago in the Highlands of Scotland. I am immortal and I am not alone. For centuries we have waited for the time of the gathering. When the stroke of a sword and the fall of a head will release the power of the Quickening. In the end, there can be only one."


PRINCES OF THE UNIVERSE

Here we are, born to be kings,
We're the princes of the universe.

Here we belong, fighting to survive
In a world with the darkest powers.

And here we are, we're the princes of the universe
Here we belong, fighting for survival
We've come to be the rulers of your world.

I am immortal, I have inside me blood of kings.
I have no rival, no man can be my equal
Take me to the future of your world.

Born to be kings, princes of the universe
Fighting and free, got your world in my hand
I'm here for your love and I'll make my stand
We were born to be princes of the universe.

No man could understand. My power is in your hand
Ooh, ooh, ooh, people talk about you.
People say you've had your day.
I'm a man that will go far.

Fly the moon and reach for the stars
With my sword and head held high
Got to pass the test first time-yeah
I know that people talk about me. I hear it every day.
But I can prove you wrong 'cause I'm right first time.
Yeah yeah alright watch this man fly, bring on the girls

Here we are. Born to be kings,
We're the princes of the universe.

Here we belong. Born to be kings,
Princes of the universe. Fighting and free
Got the world in my hands
I'm here for your love and I'll make my stand.
We were born to be princes of the universe.
