Have you ever taken a bite of a cupcake only to find it's full of razor blades? That's me, Christi!
(Okay this is my professional comedy BIO sooooo, I should talk in the third person now...)
Armed with a ridiculous love for pop culture, "human connection" and her sky-daddy Jesus; Christi's comedy takes you on a fervent journey into the holy and horny life of the girl behind the cartoonish voice! Half parts cuteness and savagery, Christi's comedy explores the breakUPS, breakDOWNS and breakTHROUGHS that have made her comedy's #1 angel bitch!
Christi made her Comedy Central debut on Jeff Ross's Roast Battle, opposite legend Jimmy Carr. She was named a 'New Face of Comedy' at the International Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in 2017. 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. She has been featured in the Village Voice, Time Out NY, The Interrobang, SplitSider, Vulture, the New York Comedy Festival, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival and the Women in Comedy Festival.
Christi co-hosts Battle of the Divas with Matteo Lane (Time Out New York's pic for Best of the New York Comedy Festival 2018) and White Chocolate with Petey DeAbreu. Her one woman show "It's Christi, B*tch!" premiered in November at Ars Nova and has sold out every showing. Time Out New York called the show one of January's "must see comedy events." You can hear Christi as Baby Saffron in the animated series Pinkalicious and Peterrific on PBS Kids.
