Chris Harvey is a gentle giant who brings big laughs to the stage. Soft spoken and prone to laughing with the audience, he grew up on the poor side of Akron, Ohio. From an early age, he knew he was destined for more, and now that he is living in Atlanta, he is well on his way to becoming comedy's next big thing. Performing stand-up for less than a decade, Chris has been recognized as Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian and Toledo's Best Urban Comic. He has also been nominated for Ohio's Best Comedian in 2018, and the Cleveland Road Warrior in 2019 and 2020. He has been seen on FOX, Hulu, Starz, and Amazon Prime and has appeared at both the Cleveland Comedy Festival and The Indie Pods United Festival. An award-winning comedian, he has opened for Tommy Davidson, Damon Wayans Jr., and Josh Wolf, and has appeared on comedy club stages across the country.
