A strongly worded opinion on the half-dollar or an endearing story about his 12-year-old daughter predicting his early demise, your party/event is in good hands when you book Chris to do standup. He provides a fun professional show with his own sound equipment or yours for the same cost.Chris has years of experience with setting up and running regular and ongoing shows.

Just ask.
After spending the 2000s having kids, reading and learning to write comic books and getting divorced,Chris started up the Idiot Box Cult Podcast. While co-hosting 40 plus episodes he decided that he is pretty funny and began writing standup comedy.

He was the worst ever. I'm forwarding emails to katy per our phone call. His vulgar emails were disgusting. He insulted people & .5 is too good for him. Tried to pay him with a check & he refused because he wanted more money & cash. Definitely the worst comedian ever, he says because he was too dirty, please, these ladies have heard lots of comedians and not only was he not dirty but not funny, he said I didn't do my research, all the research in the world couldn't have prepared us for this bomb he even knew it. Now he is harassing other Emblem clubs outside of Ohio and is still using gig masters even though per Katie he is no longer hired there. Awful

Chris Paugh’s Response:

Gina is not a very nice lady. She spelled Katy two different ways here. She refused to pay after I drove an hour and a half to her event. Video of this event is out there and the first ten minutes or so everyone is laughing and it's fine. Once, I mention having gay friends in one joke you can see the crowd starting to turn. She's correct it wasn't too dirty for them it was just not in line with what they are. If you're looking for a comedian to hire try and watch some of the videos and audio available on the page.
