Comedian Chris Gehrt
LEGIT FX, MIXOLOGY ABC, 90210 CW, MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE TNT, CSI MIAMI CBS
Chris Gehrt is what would happen if Kermit the Frog had a kid with Kenny Powers. He's likeable, sarcastic and immature as hell. Which I guess is why audiences love him. Not many people can handle the power of someone who is in their 30's and is obsessed with Bigfoot, Guns N Roses and the "Friday the 13th" films. But the same 80's degenerates are his audience, selling out his shows in clubs and bars throughout the Southwest. Chris is an original member of the "Convicts of Comedy", a poorly named stand up group that performs in hell holes like Fresno, Bakersfield and Hollywood. His blog "Use your Dillusion" brings in about 2000 + viewers a week and has been featured in "The Huffington Post" and the "Los Angeles Times."
