Employing what he's labeled "hard funny," Christopher Titus has released three ninety-minute albums in as many years. That's 270 minutes of material when most comics do the same act for years. He has three one-hour comedy specials currently running on Comedy Central. After years of experimentation with dark and personal storytelling, he debuted his one-man show "Norman Rockwell is Bleeding" at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles. It was from this performance that the dark comedy, "Titus," was born on Fox. The show earned Titus a Writer's Guild nomination as well as an Emmy nomination, and Newsday called him "TV's most original voice since Seinfeld."
His second show, "The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour," was released in 2007 to rave reviews. Titus tackled such difficult issues as the Iraq war, racism, pedophilia and even his father's unconventional and ridiculous funeral, where he, with his brother and sister's help, spread his father's ashes in a casino. These are issues most comedians would run from, but Titus never walks into the familiar.
Titus' newest one-man show, "Love Is Evol," deconstructs relationships in a way no comic has ever attempted. Titus wades into domestic violence, plastic surgery, custody and all aspects of the nightmare relationships that made him question the existence of God. Then, his new girlfriend helped him reconfirm it. This groundbreaking comedy special premiered on Comedy Central on Valentine's Day. The album and dvd were released on February 15th, 2009. Titus claims that "this show will either fix your relationship or destroy it, and either way, you're welcome. If my comedy ends your relationship, then it needed to end."
