However it was Chicago’s vibrant comedy scene that influenced Chris and called him into comedy.
While performing stand up around the city, Chris began training with the historic Second City Chicago and iO Theater Chicago. It was with that training that Chris created and produced his own stage production at the well-known Southside Chicago comedy club Jokes & Notes. Chris refined his character and sketch writing while touring with the illustrious Second City and had a brief stint on their E.T.C stage before venturing on to work at NBC on an Untitled Sketch Comedy Pilot.
Chris has worked on projects including the Tina Fey produced ABC Comedy ‘Family Fortune’ as well as a small recurring role on FOX’S show EMPIRE. The biggest role to date, however, is playing Hunter the Hungry in the Lonely Island movie entitled Popstar: Never stop Never Stopping produced by Judd Apatow.
