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. Chris has appeared on HBO’s Crashing, Amazon’s One Mississippi, and Comedy Central's series Corporate.
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 2016 film Punching Henry.
Chris’s 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 air- port, 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.
