Comedy was great, Chris's juggling was fantastic.
Parking was a challenge, the meter kept our cash and did not give a receipt to put in our window, so we had to pay twice.
Great evening. Thank you for this offer

Description

A fresh and captivating new voice in the tradition of American satire from Will Rogers to Dennis Miller, Chris Bliss delivers smart comedy for the information age. Now a Tonight Show favorite, Jay Leno has called him “one of the brightest comedians around.” Before beginning his comedy career, Chris was internationally known as an innovative variety artist – touring with major artists from Eric Clapton to Julio Iglesias, and chosen by Michael Jackson as the opening act for his record-breaking “Victory Tour”. Insightful humor, capped off with a world-class variety finale that your audience won’t soon forget – - Chris Bliss is two of the best in one outstanding performer.
