Chris Griffin, having endured over a decade of Family Guy jokes, entered the world of standup comedy to reclaim his name. He won his hometown’s Great Canadian Laugh Off competition in his first year, earning him a trip to Toronto to compete in the finals. The early success inspired him to quit his stable job and put his two degrees towards doing what he knows best – drinking and telling jokes. His unique humour merges intelligence with a blue collar upbringing to create a perspective that is equal parts biting and empathetic to the human condition. Griffin recorded his first full length comedy special at the EPCOR Centre’s Engineered Air Theater. The Mixtape was released at the end of 2013 coinciding with his move to Vancouver, where he now resides. He was featured on iChannel’s No Kidding, and as part of the Sled Island Music and Arts Festival, Funnyfest and the YYComedy Festival. Earlier this year he performed in the 2016 JFL Northwest Comedy Festival, and he has just been selected as the only Canadian to compete in this year’s San Francisco International Comedy Competition in September.
