About this Event
Christian Finnegan is perhaps best known as one of the original panelists on VH1’s Best Week Ever and as Chad, the only white roommate in the infamous “Mad Real World” sketch on Chappelle’s Show. He played Martin on the popular syndicated sitcom Are We There Yet? and politics junkies will recognize Christian from his many appearances on Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
More recently, Christian was the creator and co-host of A&E’s Black & White, which examined current events and social trends through the lens of Race. He can also be heard filling in as a regular guest host on “Standup with Pete Dominick” on SiriusXM Insight.
Over the years, Christian has been a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in his own one-hour stand-up special Au Contraire, as well as Comedy Central Presents, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and countless network interstitials. He’s also appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Conan, Good Morning America and The Today Show.
In June 2019, Christian released his fourth standup album 60% Joking. It hit #1 on iTunes’ comedy charts and was named “Album of the Month” on SiriusXM’s Laugh USA. It’s available on all major platforms, along with his previous albums/specials, Two For Flinching, Au Contraire! and The Fun Part.
When not on tour, Christian Finnegan lives in Queens with his wife, author Kambri Crews and their faithful pooches, Griswold and Chief Billy Bowlegs.
