Biography

An emotionally tumultuous childhood involving a mentally ill mother and a series of stepmothers helped shape Christopher Titus into the standup comic he became, often coming up with material that came directly from his painful early experiences. He became a successful touring comic, and parlayed that status into a series of television appearances on shows as diverse as 21 Jump Street, Columbo, Union Square, and Damon. In 2000, he started a successful run with Titus, a situation comedy he created and starred in that was based in large part on his dysfunctional relationship with his father. The series ran for three seasons, after which he could be seen in such films as the showbiz comedy Remarkable Power. He was back to prime-time TV in fall 2007, as a cast member of the drama Big Shots, a sort of Sex and the City for men, but the show was canceled after less than a full season. In 2009 he delivered a new stand-up special, Love Is Evol. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
