Comedian Chris Smith is not a punchline and zinger-style comedian. He is an honest and forthright storyteller that enjoys developing characters on stage to elevate the story. Having spent nearly a decade teaching in inner city Philadelphia, Chris approaches comedy with the same irreverence he brought to the classroom each day. Whether highlighting his childhood, providing commentary on pop culture or telling a story about his first kiss, he has the uncanny ability to mesmerize a crowd. Wrapped up in this everyman’s comedian is the idea that comedy is about elevating people’s spirits. Chris’ tremendous energy, physicality and commitment to the craft is palpable every time he performs.
