CHRIS RIGGINS (HOST)
When it comes to being on the forefront of what is hip, fresh and respectable, no place can touch the San Francisco Bay Area. Every corner is exploding with amazing art and the artist themselves all have so much talent that it can be hard to stand out. Chris Riggins has taken the art of stand up comedy and chose to stand out amongst a sea of other talented artists. From producing unique shows such as the Outdoor Comedy Club, opening for Dave Chappelle his first time on stage, to featuring and headlining at major clubs and colleges throughout the United States, the sky is truly the limit for Chris. While a unique take on growing up in the Bay Area and finding humor in the struggle are the centerpiece of Chris' act, he is relatable to people from all walks of life. While many comics can make you laugh, few can make you reflect humorously on life experiences the way that Chris does. The Bay Area produces the greatest artists in the world and Chris solidifies that notion.
