Chris Garcia is a comedian and writer based in San Francisco, California. He is an alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley where he studied creative writing and improvisational theater.
Chris has performed stand up comedy at clubs and festivals across the country, and has had the pleasure of working with comics such as Maria Bamford, Aziz Ansari, Todd Barry, Neil Hamburger, Natasha Leggero, Rick Shapiro, Al Madrigal, and others. His festival appearances include SF Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival.
Chris is the recipient of the 2010 Dan Crawford Memorial Scholarship, an annual award given to the San Francisco Punchline Comedy Club’s comic of the year. He was recently named one of the Bay Area’s “Top 5 Comedians to Watch” by the San Jose Mercury News, and was awarded a 2010 Silver Nail by Rooftop Comedy, a national award recognizing up and coming comedians in the country.
Carlos Alazraqui of Reno 911 says, “Chris Garcia is the future of comedy. I say that because he’s really white and funny like me, but younger.”
Chris is pretty sure Carlos was drunk when he said that.
