"Come for the cheap drinks and stay for the likes of Christi Chiello, a rising NYC comic with an incredible voice (think Marcel the Shell meets Betty Boop) and great jokes!"
- The Village Voice
Armed with a quirky voice, ridiculous love for pop culture and obsession with "human connection"; Christi Chiello disarms you with cuteness while slinging her unique brand of dark and absurd humor. She is fresh-faced, fearless and one of NYC's fastest rising comics.
Christi made her Comedy Central debut on Jeff Ross's Roast Battle, opposite legend Jimmy Carr. She was recently named a "New Face of Comedy" at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Christi's appeared on TruTV's Late Night Snack, IFC's Comedy Crib, MTV's GirlCode, College Humor, Funny or Die, JASH and MNN's The Special Without Brett Davis. Christi has been featured in the Village Voice, Time Out NY, The Interrobang, Vulture, the New York Comedy Festival, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival and the Women in Comedy Festival.
Christi co-hosts Battle of the Divas at Union Hall with Matteo Lane and white chocolate at The Secret Loft with Petey DeAbreu. She performs sketch comedy with Lorelei Ramirez in ACTORS, most recently at Ars Nova and hosts her own podcast, 'Talking Funny with Christi' on the RiotCast Network.
You can hear Christi as Saffron in the upcoming animated series 'Pinkalicious and Peterrific' on PBS starting in February!
