One of the darkest comedians to ever land a television sitcom, Christopher Titus blurs the line between standup and monologues with his edgy yet accessible act. While growing up in Northern California he was shuttled between his divorced parents. According to Titus himself, his life lessons came in the form of "here's what NOT to do." While this dysfunctional upbringing would later be at the center of his one-man shows and his television series, he originally immersed himself in other characters by studying acting. Television roles and an appearance in the cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space paid the bills while Titus focused on his standup act. Talk show appearances also led up to his big break when in 1998 he premiered his one-man show, Norman Rockwell Is Bleeding, in Los Angeles. The show earned rave reviews, successfully toured, and became a television special in 2004 when it was aired on the cable network Showtime. His television show Titus was loosely based on Bleeding and aired on the Fox network for three seasons beginning in 2000. In late 2006 he toured Iraq, playing to the American troops stationed there and meeting numerous servicemen. His interaction with the soldiers was just one of the sobering topics covered in his 2007 CD for Comedy Central, The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour. The label documented his Norman Rockwell Is Bleeding show a year later with a CD, while his new, breakup-themed show, Love Is Evol, would arrive on the label in 2009. Neverlution! followed in 2011, with Titus rallying against the apathetic “Text Nation” (aka the "U.S. of American Idol”). ~ David Jeffries
