Chris Bliss

Chris Bliss delivers intelligent and timely commentary about our world, in the tradition of great American satire from Mark Twain to Jon Stewart. Jay Leno featured Chris repeatedly on the Tonight Show, calling him "one of the brightest comedians around,” with the Washington Post adding that "if you're looking to laugh, you can't do much better than Chris Bliss.” Chris was also one of the first surprise stars of the YouTube era, when his "Amazing Juggling Finale" video went viral to the tune of over 100,000,000 downloads. Other noteworthy accomplishments for this unconventional entertainer are his TED talk, “Comedy Is Translation”, which been viewed over 600,000 times on TED.com, and speaking appearances at Chicago Ideas Week, a citywide event committed to “the sharing of ideas, inspiring action, and igniting change to positively impact our world” that features national and global figures. Whether it’s his scathingly funny comedy about the absurdities of our modern world, his commitment to spreading awareness of our founding principles, or his unique approach to juggling as a musical art, Chris Bliss is continually searching for new approaches to old conventions, and fresh ways of expressing them. The result is an entertaining and original voice. One thing is certain. To paraphrase his write-up in the Washington Post, if you’re looking to laugh and think, you can’t do better than Chris Bliss.
