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”.

Josh has also written material for Garry Shandling, Dennis Miller, Roseanne, Louie Anderson and others as well as serving as a writer and producer on the UPN sitcom Malcolm and Eddie.
