With over 20 years of stand-up comedy and television under his belt, Chris Monty continues to delight audiences worldwide. His latest projects include his stand-up special titled "What's the Worst That Could Happen" (Amazon Prime), Vinyl (HBO), Red Oaks (Amazon Prime), Paul Bart: Mall Cop 2 (Sony Pictures), Kevin Can Wait (CBS), and Orange is the New Black (Netflix). 

In his stand-up, Chris channels the style of the 1960's cool funnyman mixed with a modern chic. His unique take on current topics and storytelling are reminiscent of the comics that would keep The Rat Pack in stitches for weeks. He spans generations in that older crowds love his cool, retro style and younger crowds see a cadence that they haven't seen on stage. It is truly something unique to experience. Chris's experience as a stand-up comic also lends itself to his wide ranging acting work. He uses his quick improvisational skills and ability to use physical slapstick and timing to enhance his lead and supporting actor's roles.

After his set he’ll share stories about his comedy career and many acting roles.
