Fort Worth — This week, Amphibian Stage has its first comedy residency of the season, with New York-based stand-up Chris Laker. The comic, who just made his television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2017 (see video above), performs Wednesday through Saturday, Jan. 8 through Jan. 11, trying out new material.

On Thursday, Jan. 9 at 8 p.m., the show is a benefit for Metropolitan Arts Media, which runs TheaterJones.com and is dedicated to preserving and expanding performing arts journalism in Dallas-Fort Worth. Tickets are $15, and you can make your reservations here. (If you go on Friday or Saturday, tickets go up to $20 and it will not benefit MAM.)

Chris was named a New Face at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2011, Chris’s sharp and edgy comedy has earned him a loyal following in New York’s alternative scene, where he’s hosted a variety of shows (The Show at The Creek and the Cave, The Laker Awards) and podcasts: This Week in Jackin’, Heteronormative, and Overslept. This past year Chris has been opening for Mike Birbiglia on his Working It Out and The New One tours. Chris’s debut stand-up album, Moments of Greatness (Comedy Dynamics), is available everywhere that sells music. Chris writes and acts too.

Look for an interview and more to come on TheaterJones. Thanks For Reading
