J. Chris Newberg
"You ever have that one friend that drinks himself creepy?" J. Chris Newberg asks audiences. "He'll be like, 'Pull up next to the bus. Pull up next to the bus and I'll take out my wiener and stick it in the window.'" Then there's his other friend. "He's the drunk that loves to steal stuff, but doesn't tell you until you're leaving the convenience store. 'Dude! Run!'" Such musings come between funny original songs about asking girls in the front row of his gigs to make out, and noisy, amorous neighbors. Then it's back into some more observational comedy. "Whenever two people meet and have that spark, it's called 'love at first sight,'" he says. "When only one person has it, that's called stalking, and I know that now." Newberg has built a loyal cult following dubbed the Chris Army, and has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, the History Channel, and Fox Sports. 18+; 21+ later shows.
