Originally from Montana’s Big Sky Country, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Chris Fairbanks headlines comedy venues internationally. His fast paced, quirky, and constantly improvised act has been showcased on Comedy Central, Conan, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Seeso.
For TruTV, Chris was a cast member and director of ‘World’s Dumbest’ and the host of “Almost Genius”. In the past year, he’s been featured on @midnight w/ Chris Hardwick, FOX’s new (and very similar) series Punchline, and the film ‘Punching Henry’ starring JK Simmons. Chris also has upcoming appearances on HBO’s ‘Crashing’, Amazon’s ‘One Mississippi’, and Comedy Centrals upcoming series ‘Corporate’.
Chris’ comedy album, “Fairbanks!” was named one of Amazon MP3’s Top Ten. He also hosts the popular podcast, “Do You Need a Ride”, with Karen Kilgariff on All Things Comedy. They shuttle their guests to or from the airport, somewhat dangerously, in a ’08 Honda Accord mobile sound studio.
Chris is also self-employed as a freelance artist, illustrating for magazines, skateboards, album covers, etc.
