Live Illustrated Storytelling

Chris Fair is a Chicago comedian who likes to draw… With LASERS!!! This is not your Dad’s laser show. Fair uses his skills in drawing and improv to exhibit this unique and mesmerizing, storytelling experience. Fair specializes in generating stories out of his imagination where he illustrates and animates characters and scenery from behind a glow-in-the-dark screen using Laser Reactive Technology; think of it like a high-tech Etch-A-Sketch. He then brings his creations to life with hilarious voices, sound effects, some music and non-stop drawing action into a journey that you won’t ever forget. 

Chris just loves performing his perfecting his signature show and has been perfecting it since 2011. His artistic creations can be curtailed towards any audience with a different performance every time influenced by one or more suggestions at the top of the show. TIMEOUT Chicago called the Laser Comedy Show “Completely original” and “feel-good-inside magical” and his show has been recommended by the Chicago Reader. Chris has also turned heads as he performed The Laser Comedy Show at over 20 comedy festivals all over the country since 2014. Chris’s performance background started with stand up comedy for over 5 years prior to studying improv in 2009 and graduating from the improv training programs at iO Chicago, ComedySportz, and Second City Writing/Acting programs.
