What to Expect
One thing that Chris has learned through his 10 year tenure in scholarly education, is that humor truly is the best medicine. When he first started studying at the College of Mount Saint Vincent in August of 2005, he took advantage of a free event the school offered called, “Trippin’ Tuesdays”. This was, and still is, a free comedy event for the students that take place every month, and the student Board of Programmers would book a comedian to come to the school to perform. Chris went to his first show and saw that there was no thought put into the selection of hired performers. He was upset simply because he felt the school was throwing money away on entertainment that did not cater to the student demographic.
Chris took this as an opportunity to get involved with the different clubs of the school to add his own comedic flavor to the scene. Clubs like, Haraya, Casa Latina and TRIO allowed Chris that platform to serve the student body and it was absolutely amazing. When the Board of Programmers decided to host a Trippin’ Tuesday Amateur Night, Chris jumped at the opportunity. Little did he know that it was a competition. He won the competition and all subsequent competitions for the next 3 years. Chris ended up gaining his own 1 hour Trippin Tuesday Special 2 years in a row. He was successful because of one thing and one thing only; He is a student, therefore he understands the student, and he knows what makes the student laugh and relieve their stress. His ultimate goal with the college demographic is to alleviate some of the stresses of college life through laughter and finding the humor in this journey of finding oneself in college. Chris now tours with a team of two other comics; Shari Diaz, Quan D. Wiggins and the most awesome DJ Harlem Emperor. He has performed at Manhattan College, Lehman College (3 appearances), and various venues throughout NYC and the tri-state area. Chris and all of his peers have attended college within the last 10 years and they are all aware of what the 18-24 year old demographic wants with regards to entertainment. They come with one intention when they address a crowd, pristine delivery.
