John Crist

@ Crackers in Broad Ripple


Fresh off a tour schedule of over 275 shows in 2013, award-winning standup comedian John Crist started 2014 with his first television appearance on Live at Gotham.

Crist’s edgy, yet clean comedy comes highly touted as a Denver finalist of the 2013 Comedy Central’s Up Next Comedy Competition, winner of the 2012 Denver Improv’s Got Laughs Competition, winner of the 2012 Loonees Comedy Competition and finalist of the 2012 Comedy Works New Faces Contest.

In addition to several recent appearances on the Bob and Tom Show, Crist had the recent honor of performing on a USO Comedy Tour for the Troops in Kuwait. “That’s one of the highlights of my career.” Crist recalls. “Going into a war zone to make soldiers laugh was a surreal experience, I’ll never forget it.”

Crist is also currently looking forward to his film debut, sharing the screen with Adam Carolla in his new movie Road Hard (In production, releasing Spring 2015). About Crist, Carolla said, “I hand picked John to come work with me on this film. He’s a great comic.”

Crist emerged onto the national comedy scene in 2009 when he appeared on Louie Anderson’s Las Vegas Comedy Show “Larger Than Life.” Anderson, named one of Comedy Central’s Top 100 comedians of all time, said of Crist, “It’s only a matter of time until John Crist is a household name. He is so likeable and his stand up is top notch.” Crist made the most of his opportunity and has since become a regular in Las Vegas, returning four times a year.

Since his emergence, Crist has been touring the country honing his craft at top comedy clubs like Gotham Live (New York City), The Comedy and Magic Club (Los Angeles), The Laugh Factory (Las Vegas), The Comedy Store (Hollywood), Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club (Las Vegas), Flappers Comedy Club (Hollywood) and his home club, The Comedy Works in Denver. His club experience has given him the honor of sharing the stage with some of his all time favorite comedians like Louie Anderson, Bill Bellamy, Adam Carolla, Tim Hawkins, Faizon Love, Pauly Shore, Tommy Johnagin, Sherri Shepherd, Josh Blue, Felipe Esparza, The Sklar Brothers and many more.

Although primarily working the clubs, Crist’s youthful humor and unquestionable likeability result in a witty combination making him a crowd favorite in clubs, churches, cruise ships, colleges and corporate events. He’s become a well sought after performer for many Fortune 500 company events, including Microsoft, GE, Lexus, and HP Computers. He’s also performed at public universities like Arizona State, Christian schools like Grand Canyon University and even Dartmouth, one of the top Ivy league schools in the nation. Crist has recently teamed up with internet sensation Tim Hawkins for over 25 church tour dates a year. “Those church shows are insane,” Crist says. “If I had a night off and could go watch any comedian in the country, I’d go see Tim Hawkins. That guy crushes.”

Crist’s stand-up routine is always evolving and his crowd work and improvisational skills guarantee that no two shows are exactly alike. His edgy yet clean comedy has made him popular among fans of all ages. Crist currently lives in Denver.
