Instructor Chris Coccia
Native Philadelphian Chris Coccia is one of America's busiest comedians -- at home and abroad. Besides being a favorite at America's top clubs like the Improv and Catch a Rising Star, Chris has been called upon to entertain American troops on military bases in Korea, Japan, and Guam. Like many great comedians, Chris' act is based on his life. He culls some of best material from his experiences as a husband and father. Chris has been seen on Comedy Centrals Stand and Deliver as well on Las Vegas' best stages where he has worked as an opening act for (among others) David Sanborn, Chicago, and the Oak Ridge Boys. Recently, Chris Coccia won the Purina pet comedy challenge 2008- http://www.petcomedychallenge.com/ and was a finalist at the inaugural Great American Comedy Festival in Norfork, NE hosted by Eddie Brill. He can also be spotted on The Game Show Network.
