New York-based actor and comedian Chris Distefano is a star on the rise. With much-praised standup specials, a beloved history and comedy podcast, and a popular TV series, Chris has become a favorite with audiences and industry insiders alike. Chris is gearing up to shoot his second-hour standup special for Comedy Central in 2020. His first-hour standup special Chris Distefano: Size 38 Waist premiered on the network in 2019 and his half-hour standup special premiered in 2014. Chris also hosts the weekly interstitial Comedy Central series Stupid Questions with Chris Distefano. The series, created to intertwine Comedy Central’s stand-up world with its deep archive of classics during the network’s stand-up heavy Friday nights, features Distefano and a guest out late, catching up, and doing their best to answer stupid questions. There are no wrong answers, just truly stupid questions.
