Bend Comedy presents:
– CHRIS FAIRBANKS –
Originally from Montana’s Big Sky Country, and currently residing in Los Angeles, Chris Fairbanks headlines comedy venues internationally. His fast paced, quirky, and constantly improvised act has been showcased on Comedy Central, Conan, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Seeso.
For TruTV, Chris was a cast member and director of ‘World’s Dumbest’ and the host of “Almost Genius”. In the past year, he’s been featured on @midnight w/ Chris Hardwick, FOX’s new (and very similar) series Punchline, and the film ‘Punching Henry’ starring JK Simmons. Chris also has upcoming appearances on HBO’s ‘Crashing’, Amazon’s ‘One Mississippi’, and Comedy Centrals series ‘Corporate’.
Chris’ comedy album, “Fairbanks!” was named one of Amazon MP3’s Top Ten. He also hosts the popular podcast, “Do You Need a Ride”, with Karen Kilgariff on All Things Comedy. They shuttle their guests to or from the airport, somewhat dangerously, in a ’08 Honda Accord mobile sound studio.
– ALI REINGOLD –
Ali Reingold is a comedian based in Portland, Oregon, who endears herself to audiences with her friendly hair, curly demeanor, and grammatically correct jokes. She has performed in venues all over the country, in such festivals as SF Sketchfest, Women in Comedy, Hell Yes Fest, and All Jane, and she was a competitor in the 38th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition. Ali has also co-produced two weekly shows in downtown Portland, both of which met their demise but live on in her heart – even the one in a sticky-floored beach-themed bar. When not performing comedy, she enjoys eating peanut butter straight out of the jar to the point of self-disgust, and cuddling with her cat, Terwilliger Van Buren.
