A comic and a filmmaker, Chris has written and directed many films, shows, and people who were lost looking for the mall. The Sci Fi Channel awarded Chris the “Future of Film” award along with a grant to make more. The Sci Fi Channel also aired his award winning short film SKINS, which The Museum of Television and Radio in New York archived as an “Important Short Film.” He has screened and spoken at various prestigious festivals including Slamdance, HBO’S US Comedy Arts festival, and at Comic-Con in San Diego. His first DVD compilation entitled Myopic Visions is available now nationwide. The DVD includes all of his short films along with his interviews with the SCI FI Channel and many extras. Also releasing later in 2008 will be Chris’ first live comedy CD, Lost in Las Vegas . Chris is a regular on Budd Friedman’s world famous Improv comedy circuit, playing many casinos from Las Vegas to New Orleans. When not performing for the Improv in Las Vegas and other locations or working on a film, Chris has also worked as a creative comedy consultant for Fremantle Media and Klasky Czupo.
Chris is also Co-creator of the Los Angeles Podcast Festival with Dave Anthony, Graham Elwood and Andy Wood.
Graham has been a stand-up comic for over 20 years working comedy clubs, colleges, TV shows, Holiday Inn Lounges, war zones, dive bars, and one time on the top of a double decker tour bus in Chicago (not joking) . You’ve probably seen him on the TV like when he hosted the socially relevant game shows “Cram” (GSN) and “Strip Poker” (USA). Along with making the world a better place by appearing on shows like “Best Bodies Ever” on VH1. Don’t forget the time when he told jokes on “The Late Late Show” (CBS). Also has starred in the theatrical plays Speed the Plow, Light Sensitive, Cash Flow and co-wrote the one act play Brothers.
Directed the feature film “Ear Buds: The Podcasting Documentary” due Summer 2015. He has directed the award winning short “Hello Junkie” (coming soon to CFN) and the stand-up comedy concert DVD “Graham Elwood: Live from Afghanistan”. In 2009 he released the feature length documentary “Laffghanistan” about his first trip telling jokes in a war zone. Scary, crazy, funny and always entertaining. Graham likes referring to himself in the 3rd person as he feels like a pro ballplayer. Graham Elwood will get it done one day at a time and hopefully will be there come playoffs.
Graham is also Co-creator of the Los Angeles Podcast Festival with Dave Anthony, Chris Mancini, and Andy Wood.
