I've been turned off by many comedians who use profanity constantly. I found Christopher Titus to be hysterical without using any four letter words at all. Very refreshing.

Come early for a good seat at Cobb's. Parking is horrendous.

Description

Born and raised in Newark, Calif., Christopher Titus grew up in your typical, modern American dysfunctional family, which opened the door to his comedic future.

His family background provides most of his comic material, including riffs like this: “One day I read the Los Angeles Times and it said 63% of American families are now considered dysfunctional, and I thought, my God, we’re the majority, we’re normal. It’s those people that have the mom, dad, brother, sister with the white picket fence — those people are the freaks.”

Christopher Titus jokes about things most comics would find impossible to make funny. Custody battles, insanity, family suicides, heart attacks, and fist fighting his father are all topics to be confronted, not hidden from. “I think our collective psychosis is hilarious. With the world moving as fast as it is, if we weren’t dysfunctional, we couldn’t function,” says Titus. Starting at age eighteen, he used to wait outside the comedy clubs with the door cracked, listening for his intro so he could rush the stage, do his set and make a quick exit because he was underage.

Christopher’s unique and insightful act is based on his one-of-a-kind life experiences. Titus is that most rare of comics in that his material is edgy and pushes the envelope, but still accessible and meaningful to the common audience. After much experimentation, he debuted his one man show “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding” at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles. The packed house gave him a standing ovation. His show has certainly evolved from the days when he was touring the country as Kenny Loggins’ opening act doing what he refers to as his old “happy boy” act.

In addition to his TV show, Christopher’s television appearences include NBC’s Comedy Showcase and “Friday Night!”, A & E’s “An Evening at the Improv” and “Caroline’s comedy Hour”, and Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”. A trained and serious actor, his television guest appearances include Fox’s “21 Jump Street”, “Damon” and “Beyond Belief”, NBC’s “Jenny”, and ABC’s “Lois & Clark”. His film credits include co-starring roles in the nuclear submarine thriller “Crash Dive”, and the cult classic “Killer Clowns from Outer Space”. Christopher was a stand out at the 1996, 1997, and 1999 Montreal Just for Laughs Festivals.
