If Oscar Wilde and Tina Fey had a baby, and the only books that baby read were compilations of Calvin & Hobbes comic strips, you’d get Chris Doucette. Chris is the son of a trucker and the first in his family to graduate college. He’s got a blue collar attitude with an ivy league wit. His humor is current, topical, and completely original. Said one audience member, “I hate stand-up comedy – but you, you made me laugh out loud!”
In June 2011, Chris won 1st place at the Snubfest Comedy Festival in Chicago. He has written jokes for Emmy Award-winning actor Jane Lynch. The Advocate referred to him as “The Best of LGBT Comedy.” He has performed for colleges all over the country and recently received a standing ovation from the students at Florida Tech. Chris has performed on the largest cruise ship in the world and he was selected as a feature comic at the Asheville Comedy Festival, Michigan Comedyfest, Charleston Comedy Festival, Baltimore Comedy Festival, Baltimore Artscape Festival, and headlined the Ganymede Arts Festival. He has performed on FOX, NPR, The Joey Reynolds Show, WTOP, and WAMU. He has appeared in The Washington Post, Miami Sun-Sentinel, Metro Weekly, Time Out New York, Next Magazine, New York Post, and the Village Voice. His jokes have appeared in The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Women’s Wear Daily, The Huffington Post, and more. He produces a monthly show in Washington, DC called “Gaylarious.” In 2012, Chris created Hectic Detours Productions and produces several sketch comedy videos, including the web series “Jesus Interrupted.” The blogs love him: he’s been featured in afterelton.com, brightestyoungthings.com, thenewgay.net, and thegayplaces.com.
