Starring Chris Fuller
Written by Chris Fuller

How do you handle your golf swing and wild mood swings at the same time with bipolar mental disorder? In this funny and touching solo show, pro golfer Chris Fuller details the difficulties he experienced competing in tournaments with a mind racing out of control. Chris will introduce you to the cast of colorful characters who helped him get out of the rough, avoid the hazards, and find his bliss. Cheese Fries & Chili Dips takes you on a poignant, hilarious, and surprising journey as written and performed by the man who lived it!

FOLLOWING THE PERFORMANCE WILL BE ENTERTAINMENT BY SURPRISE MUSICAL GUESTS AND A PANEL DISCUSSION / Q&A WITH MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS

Here are what the critics have said about Cheese Fries & Chili Dips......

“What happens when a clever young pro golfer walks into a comedy club? If the fugitive from the pro golf tour is Chris Fuller, look for laughter and tears – because he’s funny – genuinely funny – and he’s been plagued by bi-polar mood swings for years. Engagingly honest, Chris Fuller delves deep into his garage full of hopes, dreams, disappointments, and memories, compassionately displaying the inventive, often self-deprecating timing some comics are naturally blessed with. Directed by Mark S. Graham, “Cheese Fries & Chili Dips” is enormously touching and a rollicking good time.”- Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate, Inc. Member of broadcast and film critics association, Drama Desk, etc.

“I was so inspired by Chris’ story and performance! It will stay with me for a while!” - Dr. Mohini Ranganathan, Associate Professor, Dept of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine; in Psychiatrist, VACHS

“Very few things are fantastic. Cheese Fries and Chili Dips is. It’s funny, tragic and full of humanity. A truthful and insightful look at two of the toughest things in the Universe. Living and Golf. Mr. Fuller has done a grand job!" - George Gallo, Academy Award winning producer, writer, director – Bad Boys, Midnight Run, 29th Street
