Bio

If Oscar Wilde and Tina Fey had a baby that read only Calvin & Hobbes comic strips, you’d get Chris Doucette. Chris is the son of a trucker and the first in his family to graduate college. He’s got a blue collar attitude with an ivy league wit. His humor is current, topical, and completely original.

In June 2011, Chris won 1st place at the Snubfest Comedy Festival in Chicago. He has written jokes for Emmy Award-winning actor Jane Lynch. He’s been named as a Comedy360 “Comic To Watch.” The Advocate referred to his tweets as “The Best of LGBT Comedy.” He has headlined colleges all over the country and received a standing ovation from the students at Florida Tech. Chris has performed on the largest cruise ship in the world and he was selected as a feature comic at comedy festivals in Asheville, Charleston, Baltimore, Ventura, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and the Women In Comedy Festival. He has performed on FOX and NPR. He made his television debut in 2013 as an extra on NBC’s SMASH, throwing shade at Angelica Huston. He has appeared in The Washington Post, Miami Sun-Sentinel, Metro Weekly, Time Out New York, Next Magazine, New York Post, and the Village Voice. He tours with the “Nobodies of Comedy Tour” produced by Mills Entertainment. His jokes have appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Women’s Wear Daily, The Huffington Post, and more. He re-caps a show on Fox called “Almost Human.” The blogs love him: he’s been featured in afterelton.combrightestyoungthings.com, thenewgay.net, and thegayplaces.com.
