Described as a high energy comic, Chris Distefano acts out a variety of characters derived from his life, typically leaving you on the edge of your seat wondering “Who the hell is that he’s talking about?” Chris has worked at all of the top comedy clubs across New York City including but not limited to Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline’s on Broadway, and the Laugh Lounge. Chris still lives in Brooklyn, NY with his Mom (punch line). Chris has a Bachelors degree in Psychology to impress his mom’s friends, and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy to impress his Moms friend’s Moms. That kind of thinking got him on the SNY network as the host of the 2010 Fencing Masters at Hammerstein Ballroom. It also got him all the way to the Final 4 of the 2011 March Madness Comedy Competition at the world famous Caroline’s on Broadway. Chris also headlined at Caroline’s this month and recently opened for Gilbert Gottfried & Dustin Diamond. When he’s not making witty remarks (like the ones you’ve just read) or transforming into various personas on stage, you can find him stretching people’s hamstrings and getting yelled at to clean his room.
