Master of Ceremonies

Chris Trani is a fantastic stand-up comedian from Chicago, IL who integrates all forms of comedy into his act: Stand-up, storytelling, crowd work, one-liners; and if need be, he can do it all in Spanish (kinda!). Winner of National Public Radio’s The MOTH and the SNUBFEST Comedy Festival for Storytelling, Chris has shared the stage with Roy Wood Jr. of The Daily Show, Dov Davidoff of HBO’s CRASHING, and Pat McGann of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Chris is the official house emcee at The House of Blues Chicago Stand-up Comedy Show and can be seen performing at clubs all throughout the country, including Chicago’s very own Comedy Bar, Zanies, Laugh Factory, and more.
