Chris Garcia started his comedy career as a children's theater actor, playwright, and improviser at UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science. After 3 years of dressing up in shark costumes and making kids across the country laugh and learn about science, Chris decided to move to San Francisco to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a stand up comedian.
Chris quickly became a regular at all of the major clubs in the Bay Area, including the San Francisco Punch Line, which awarded him the Dan Crawford Memorial Scholarship, an award celebrating their comedian of the year. Chris has had the privilege of working with such comics as Marc Maron, Bill Burr, David Cross, The Kids in the Hall, Aziz Ansari, Reggie Watts, Maria Bamford, and Robin Williams. After seeing him perform, Robin Williams praised Chris and called his act "funny, fearless, and straight from the heart."
7x7 Magazine featured Chris as "One of the 7 Funniest People in San Francisco" in their 2011 arts issue. Chris also won Rooftop Comedy's "Silver Nail Award" for up and coming comics.
Chris has written for Yahoo, Bing, Fast Company, and Life & Style Magazine.
Chris also makes comedy music videos that have been featured on Comedy Central Insider, and MTV Tr3s. Festival performances include: San Francisco Sketchfest, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, SXSW, and Outside Lands.
