Comedian Christian Finnegan FREE at the Creek

Comedian and Queens resident Christian Finnegan will present free workshop performances of New York City-related stories and stand up comedy called THE NYC PROJECT at the Creek at 7PM from July 14 through 20th.

Finnegan, a resident of New York City since the age of 18, will tell jokes, stories and other “only in New York” material during a one-hour show titled THE NYC PROJECT. Why only New York material? “Over the years I’ve written lots of jokes about this glorious mess of a town, and it’s some of my favorite to perform,“ Finnegan said. “Unfortunately, bits about Duane Reade salespeople and Astor Place skateboarders don’t travel well, so they rarely get told. They tantalize me like an overpriced artisanal pickle in a Brooklyn shop window.”

Finnegan is perhaps best known as one of the original panelists on VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and as “Chad”, the only white roommate in the infamous “Mad Real World” sketch on “Chappelle’s Show”. He can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom “Are We There Yet?” co-starring Terry Crews and Ice Cube and on History Channel’s “I Love the 1880’s”. He’s also co-host of Zest TV’s travel show, “CustomNATION” and his own music-centric podcast called “Audio Spackle” which is available on iTunes.

Recent television credits include “Conan” and “Would You Rather” hosted by Graham Norton on BBC America. Finnegan is a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in his own one hour stand up special as well as ’Comedy Central Presents”, “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and more. He’s appeared on “Conan”, “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “Good Afternoon America” and “The Today Show”. Politics junkies will recognize Christian from his many appearances on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”.

Christian’s stand up albums, “Two for Flinching” and “Au Contraire!”, are available on iTunes and at Amazon. Visit www.christianfinnegan.com for more.
