Christopher Titus          

Comedian & Actor Known for "Titus" on FOX & his Current Act "Angry Pursuit of Happiness"

Christopher Titus is an American comedian and actor. He grew up in Newark, California. Titus came to national attention with the eponymous FOX show "Titus," of which he was the star, executive producer and co-creator. Time called the show "brutal, hilarious and audacious", while Newsday called him "TV's most original comic voice since Seinfeld." He is also a stand-up comedian whose act revolves around his dysfunctional family and shocking life experiences.

Titus jokes about darkly comedic oddities such as custody battles, mental illness, family suicides, heart attacks, domestic abuse and the relationship with his judgmental, often cruel father. After years of experimentation with dark and personal storytelling, he debuted his one-man show, Norman Rockwell is Bleeding, at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles in 2004. His special, "The 5th Annual End of the World Tour," premiered on Comedy Central on March 18, 2007. In this special Titus talked about life in America since 9/11, becoming a parent, his dad passing away and scandals that had had recent high press coverage. The special Love is Evol deals with his divorce from Erin (renamed "Kate" for legal reasons) and the toll that abusive relationships take on people, among other things. In it, he talks about how his marriage to Erin fell apart, the ensuing divorce, his analysis of why people stay in bad relationships, his crisis of faith because of the divorce, meeting his new girlfriend's family, and dating again for the first time in two decades.

Titus' fourth stand up act is called Neverlution. He debuted it at the Montreal Comedy festival in 2010 to standing ovations. In it, Titus talks about bringing the country back to its former glory, the new generation, and politics. Titus' fifth stand up act is called The Voice in My Head. Titus' current act is called Angry Pursuit of Happiness.

Titus' stand-up television appearances include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Comedy Central's Premium Blend. He has also hosted Fox's Good Day Live, VH1's Dashboard Dreams and Comedy Central's USO Comedy Tour.

Titus received a Writer's Guild nomination for his work on his show "Titus," and the show received an Emmy nomination.

Since January 28, 2011, he has been airing a podcast from "The Combustion Lounge." His sidekicks on the show are his former fiance now wife, Bombshell Rae (Rachel Bradley) and Stuntman Tommy, an old friend of Titus, who also did stunt work on the TV show "Titus." The show airs once a week and after some early sound problems has become consistent. Within the first four months it broke the top ten podcasts on iTunes.

Christopher Titus founded The Insight Youth Project, a non-profit organization that raises money for children from dysfunctional and abusive families.
