Chris Thomas

Chris Thomas is the master of over 2000 amazing realistic celebrity impressions, including Denzel Washington, F. Lee Bailey, Mike Tyson, and Orson Welles. One of Chris’s favorite subjects, Sugar Ray Leonard, says quite simply “Chris Thomas knocks me out!” The Charlotte Observer lauded his ability to “move like a comic juggernaut from one famous voice to another.” Chris combines this versatility with a quick wit and deft timing to create remarkably funny conversations between several personalities at once. Chris has added impressions of singers including Frank Sinatra and Jeffrey Osborne, plus outrageous rap numbers to his repertoire to create his own fresh brand of humor.

Audiences have been knocked out by Chris’ stand-up performances at major venues including New York’s Catch A Rising Star and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. He has performed with an array of artists including Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Luther Vandross and Anita Barker.

Success as a stand-up comedian has allowed Chris to expand his work into all major media’s. His radio work includes weekly appearances on WRKX New York’s morning show and the nationally syndicated Chris Thomas Comedy Hour. Advertising work has included such clients as Levis, Xerox, and Lee Jeans. Chris has been featured in film and video work including “Body and Soul” and Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” while television appearances include “Star Search,” “Live At The Apollo,” and “The Sugar Ray Leonard Roast.” Chris’ work on the 1988 Run/DMC and Public Enemy national tours established him as the King of Hip Hop comedy and led to his most popular role as The Mayor of Black Entertainment Televisions’ (BET’s) “Rap City”; the cable network’s highest rated show.

Perhaps his biggest break to date, however, has been the opportunity to team up with the renowned Whoopie Goldberg for an HBO comedy special. Whoopie happened to see a tape of Chris’’ stand-up act, and wanted to give him a wider showcase on the cable channel known for its outstanding comedy programming. As a result, Thomas was one of two featured comedians on Whoopie’s “Chez Whoopie” on HBO.

As his audience continues to grow, more and more fans find they converted to Chris’ unique comedy. Meanwhile, he continues to find new ways to keep his fans laughing and coming back for more.
