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, Carolines on Broadway and The Comic Strip. 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 mom's friend's moms. That kind of thinking got him on the SNY network as the host of the Fencing Masters at Hammerstein Ballroom. It also got him all the way to the Elite 8 of the March Madness Comedy Competition at the world famous Carolines on Broadway (two years in a row). Chris also was selected to headline Carolines on Broadway Breakout Artist Series and was selected as a finalist in the New York Comedy Festival. Chris has opened up for comedy legends such as Richard Lewis, Gilbert Gottfried and Artie Lange. Chris has been heard on Sirius XM radio, is a regular on MTV2's "Guy Code" and his left elbow was featured on a national Subway commercial. It's a good elbow. When he's not making witty remarks or transforming into various personas on stage, you can find him stretching people's hamstrings and getting yelled at to clean his room.
