Chris Griffin

Chris Griffin, having endured over a decade of Family Guy jokes, entered the world of standup comedy to reclaim his name. He won his hometown’s Great Canadian Laugh Off in his first year, earning him a trip to Toronto to perform in the finals. The early success inspired him to quit his stable job and put his two degrees towards doing what he knows best - drinking and telling jokes. Griffin is well on his way to his life goal of being a full blown alcoholic. His unique humour merges intelligence with a blue collar upbringing to create a perspective that is equal parts biting and empathetic to the human condition. He was featured on iChannel’s No Kidding, performed in the 2015 YYComedy festival, 2015 Funnyfest and appeared in the Sled Island Music and Arts Festival. Griffin recorded his first full length comedy special at the EPCOR Centre’s Engineered Air Theater. The Mixtape was released at the end of 2013 coinciding with his move to Vancouver, Canada where he now resides. He’s gearing up for his next hour to be released in 2016. He has also performed at Just For Laugh's North West Comedy Festival!
