Chris Redd from Popstar, ABC's "Family Fortune" and Fox's "Empire" Live at Drafthouse Comedy DC @ Drafthouse Comedy DC
$20 / $20
Chris Redd is a stand up comedian, actor and writer, born in St. Louis, Missouri and moved to Chicago, IL at the age of 8. Considering himself a Chicago Native, Chris embraced his musical roots and sought to become Chicago’s next great Hip Hop artist. However it was Chicago’s vibrant comedy scene that influenced Chris and called him into comedy. While performing stand up around the city, Chris began training with the historic Second City Chicago and iO Theater Chicago. It was with that training that Chris created and produced his own stage production at the well-known Southside Chicago comedy club Jokes & Notes. Chris refined his character and sketch writing while touring with the illustrious Second City and had a brief stint on their
stage before venturing on to work at NBC on an Untitled Sketch Comedy Pilot. Chris has worked on projects including the Tina Fey produced ABC Comedy ‘Family Fortune’ as well as a small recurring role on FOX’S show EMPIRE. The biggest role to date, however, is playing Hunter the Hungry in the Lonely Island movie entitled Popstar: Never stop Never Stopping produced by Judd Apatow. Chris was deemed a New Face in the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal last year and can be seen traveling all over the world with his stand up comedy.

Matteo Lane from MTV2's "Guy Code", "Girl Code", Comedy Central and Adam Devine's "House Party" Live at Drafthouse Comedy in DC @ Drafthouse Comedy DC
$20 / $20
From the pages of Matteo Lane... So Who The Hell is Matteo? I'm a New York-based comic who grew up Italian-American (with a little bit of Mexican) in Chicago. I learned 5 languages but still don't read books. After spending most of my life as an oil painter and opera singer, trying my best to be Maria Callas, I decided to throw it all away and tell dick jokes to strangers. So far I've had a good run! I've been able to perform at Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and New York Comedy Festival. You may have seen me on Comedy Central's The Nightly Show and Adam Devine's House Party, or maybe drunk at the papaya stand on 6th Ave. I'm also a current cast member on MTV’s GirlCode and MTV2's GuyCode. I perform all the time in New York, and more and more on the road. My goal for 2016 is to find a boyfriend and eat more vegetables.
