One of our favorite comics is coming back to the Improv to record his new album! Christian Finnegan does it all: He's a veteran stand-up. He's an accomplished TV writer and host, for "Black & White," "The Jim Gaffigan Show" and other projects. He's a great comedic actor, from "Chappelle's Show," "Are We There Yet?" and more. And he was one of the first great "talking head" comedians, with tons of appearances on VH1 and cable news shows. Check him out this Valentine's Day ...


Christian Finnegan is perhaps best known as one of the original panelists on VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and as Chad, the only white roommate in “Chappelle’s Show’s” infamous “Mad Real World” sketch. He played Martin on the popular syndicated sitcom “Are We There Yet?” and politics junkies will recognize Christian from his many appearances on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”.

Most recently, Christian was the creator and co-host of A&E’s “Black & White”, which examined current events and social trends through the lens of Race. He can also be heard filling in as a regular guest host on “Standup with Pete Dominick” on SiriusXM Insight.

Over the years, Christian has been a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in his own one hour stand up special “Au Contraire”, as well as ’Comedy Central Presents”, “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and countless network interstitials. He’s also appeared on “Conan”, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “Good Afternoon America” and “The Today Show”.

Christian’s three comedy albums/specials (“Two For Flinching”, “Au Contraire!” and “The Fun Part”) are available on iTunes and Amazon and his standup is in regular rotation on all major streaming services.

When not on tour, Christian Finnegan lives in Astoria, Queens with his wife, author Kambri Crews, and their their faithful pooches, Griswold and Chief Billy Bowlegs.
