Comedy Explosion Update

The headliner for the 2012 Aztec Nights Comedy Explosion event is Chris D’Elia! Chris is going to rock it on Friday, September 7th at 9:30pm with his humor that has been described by Comedy Central as “silly, physical humor [that] sets him apart from other comedians.” Chris explained, “I never really feel like just standing there and telling jokes. I wanna move around. In fact, it’s hard for me to write a joke where I don’t end up on the ground for some reason. Hey, at least that way I know no comics will steal my [material]. Too many bruises.”

Chris D’Elia is one of the most sought after young comedians and actors in the comedy world. Recently named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” D’Elia can be seen in NBC’s multi-camera comedy “Whitney” opposite Whitney Cummings.

D’Elia quickly became a regular at the Hollywood Comedy Clubs where he performs multiple times a week.  Best known for his physical humor, he is now crisscrossing the country performing his stand-up act.

D’Elia’s other credits include TBS’ “Glory Daze” and Showtime’s “Live Nude Comedy.” In addition, he can be seen in the half hour “Comedy Central Presents.”
