Who's Carmen Christopher? New Details About A Comedian To Watch In 2020

While we’re all familiar with popular comedians like Dave Chappelle, Joe Rogan, Jerry Seinfeld, Ali Wong, Jon Stewart, Patton Oswalt, and dozens of others, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as new talent. Well, not new in the sense that these comedians have just come onto the scene, but new as in we’re just hearing about them.

The topics of conversation for comedians are endless, and with this particular comic, you may already be familiar with his work. According to an upcoming event, “Carmen blends an hour of absurd stand up and sketches in a loose narrative that will make you laugh more than the time you watched Superbad for the first time.” Sounds like the perfect stand-up routine, right?
